HONOR Philippines Unites 500+ Jumpers for Heart Health

10:55:00 AM

Took me sometime to loosen that last song syndrome or LSS of "Kapag Tumibok ang Puso" that day!

Yes, it was a weekend morning exercise and event coverage, the “HONOR Your Heart: A Jump Rope Workout for the Philippine Heart Center by HONOR Philippines in partnership with Jump Manila.” A huge success that over 500 participants joined the donation and awareness drive on heart health with the total proceeds going to the beneficiaries of the Philippine Heart Center.

HONOR Philippines and Jump Manila teamed up to shine a light on heart health, especially fitting during the love-filled month of February. "This partnership has been truly meaningful for all of us in HONOR. What better way to shed light on heart health than during love month, right? We celebrate love every February, yet we know very little of our heart health. With the success of HONOR X9b 5G, a platform has opened for us to raise awareness on this important matter," stated Stephen Cheng, Vice President of HONOR Philippines.


Erwin Ng, Founder of Jump Manila, emphasized the significance of having platforms like HONOR Philippines to support causes like heart health awareness: "As long as we have a platform and as long as there are brands like HONOR Philippines that are willing to support this great cause, we will always aim to raise awareness on heart health."

The collaboration culminated in an event held during Car-Free Sunday Mornings at Ayala Avenue on February 11, drawing in over 500 participants eager to contribute to the cause. The jump rope workout, led by Jump Manila, was a hit among attendees, fostering a sense of community while promoting physical activity. Additionally, Fitbar, Gardenia, and Sip generously sponsored food and refreshments, adding to the event's success and enjoyment. Through this initiative, efforts were directed towards both raising funds and increasing awareness for the Philippine Heart Center, marking a significant step in advocating for heart health in the Philippines.


HONOR X9b 5G was put on a test yet again as the participants tried its viral smash and drop tests. First seen to destroy a hallow block and watermelons, the HONOR X9b 5G was seen to be smashing a hard-shelled coconut.

Priced at Php 16,999, the HONOR X9b 5G is readily available on Lazada (, Shopee (, TikTok Shop ( and HONOR Experience or Partner stores.

Atty Joey Lina On Fire at CFD Coalition's NGO Malnutrition War Manual Launch

11:09:00 PM

The Children's First One Thousand Days Coalition (CDFC), under the leadership of Atty Joey Lina, officially launched its operations manual and training program on January 13, 2023, at The Manila Hotel Fiesta Pavilion. The coalition's aim is to assist Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in their collaborative efforts with the government to combat malnutrition.

Enacted through RA 11148, known as the "Kalusugan at Nutrisyon ng Magnanay Act," the law targets the issue of malnutrition within the first one thousand days of a child's life.

This is probably one of the biggest coalition that gathered different organizations together and talks about the need of the children. This is not just about talks but fairly initiates the starting move in creating a nationwide move to address the issue of malnutrition which is what every child should get in their early 1000 days. Not just from the start they were born but from beginning of their conceptions. 

During his impassioned speech, Atty Joey Lina stressed the crucial importance of supporting children during their initial one thousand days, which form the foundation of their development.

The coalition boasts an impressive lineup, including Rotary International, Lions Clubs International, Kiwanis International, Junior Chamber International, The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the Philippines, The Fraternal Order of Eagles - Philippine Eagles, Knights of the Columbus, Knights of Rizal, Save the Children Philippines, World Vision Philippines, Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals, Philippine League of Government and Private Midwives, and Crusade Against Violence.

The operations manual and training program are pivotal developments, outlining the collaborative approach between NGOs and the government in eradicating malnutrition during the first one thousand days of a child's life. This issue significantly contributes to poor school performance, low intelligence quotient, stunting, sickness, and reduced work productivity. The manual serves as a comprehensive guide for NGOs, extending its application from barangays to a national level, with a vision for fostering a healthier future for Filipino children.

To demonstrate their support, department secretaries Dr. Teodoro "Ted" J. Herbosa, DOH, and Atty. Benjamin "Benhur" C. Abalos, Jr., DILG, attended the event. Atty. Baldr H. Bringas, Assistant Secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), represented DSWD Secretary Rex Gatchalian. Additionally, NGO Head Representatives, led by Former Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno, recited the NGOs Declaration of Commitment.

The event featured various speakers who made it both informative and interesting, including Dr. Azucena M. Dayanghirang, Executive Director of the National Nutrition Council, and Former Senator Joey Lina, National Project Chairman of Children's First One Thousand Days Coalition.
  • Dr. Azucena M. Dayanghirang, Executive Direcotr of National Nutrition Council
  • Dr. Maria Isabel "Marcie' M. Atienza, MHPED, Dean and Chief Academic Officer of St. Luke's Medical Center, Colloege of Medicine - WHQM
  • Dr. Amado R. Parawan, Health and Nutrition advisor of Save the Children Philippines
  • Former Senator Joey Lina, National Project chairman of Children's First One Thousand Days Coalition
  • Br. Erlito "Lito" R. Pardo of Brotherhood of Christian Businessmen and Professionals-Las Pinas Chapter
  • Mr. Roberto A. Alvarez, President of RCMC Foundation
  • Former Executive Secretary, Atty. Salvador "Bingbong" Campo Medialdea
  • Engr. Ronaldo A. Aguila, Chief technology Officer of OneLGC, Inc.
  • Mr. Cris Giovanni C. Chiong, President, Rotary Club of Makati Central
  • Mr. Alberto D. Lina, Chairman of OneLGC, Inc
  • Mr. Ronald Delos Santos, National President of the Fraternl Order of Eagles-Philipines Eagles,
  • Mr. Danilo 'Danny" Sanchez, Past council Chairman of MD301 Philippines and State Council of Lions Governor

During panel discussions, Atty. Mike T. Toledo, former Press Secretary, served as the moderator, fostering collaboration and knowledge-sharing among key stakeholders. Atty. Joey Lina's rallying cry for a 'brighter, stronger, taller' Filipino children resonated, calling for unity to uplift the vulnerable and intensify nutrition efforts for a new generation of Filipinos. This milestone event promises to be a platform for collaboration and knowledge-sharing among key stakeholders committed to ensuring the well-being of children during their critical first 1000 days of life.

SM Prime & WWF-Philippines Unite for Future Sustainability Champs

10:16:00 AM

In a joint effort to prepare young student leaders for the vital task of safeguarding the environment in the future, SM Prime Holdings, Inc. (SM Prime) and World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines (WWF-Philippines) have unveiled the "YOUth are the Future" leadership program. This initiative focuses on educating and empowering the youth about environmental conservation, climate change, and sustainability concerns.


“There is no better time than now to educate the youth. As stewards of the planet, it is important that they have an opportunity to learn about environmental conservation, encourage them tovoice out their fresh ideas, and share new perspectives,” said WWF-Philippines Education for Sustainable Development Project Head Dino Calderon.


“When we provide our young student leaders with learning opportunities and expose them to practical solutions, we have a chance to help them design a sustainable future. We are committed to make sure that things change for the better,” says Hans “Chico” Sy, President of SM Engineering Design and Development Corporation (SMEDD) and SM sustainability champion.


Starting with a grand event on October 10, 2023, student ambassadors from different high schools in Metro Manila embarked on a guided tour of the SM Mall of Asia Complex. The tour highlighted SM Prime's sustainability initiatives and disaster preparedness practices. The official introduction of the "YOUth are the Future" Ambassadors took place at the SMX Convention Center, accompanied by a pinning ceremony. This significant gathering saw the participation of leaders and delegates from SM Prime, WWF-Philippines, government bodies, and foreign dignitaries.


In a message she delivered during the event, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Maria Antonia Yulo-Loyzaga said, “Our journey is really about the race to resilience, as our climate changes, society is changing. Sustainability is our pathway to survival as a planet and that is what resilience is really about, the ability to withstand the impacts of the hazards that we know and those that we could face in the future.”

The youth ambassadors will participate in a three-day eco-camp at the Pico De Loro Beach and Country Club in November, where they will learn about waste and energy management, resource optimization, and climate mitigation and adaptation strategies from some of the country’s experts.


Renowned for its role in Olive Ridley Sea Turtle conservation, the 3-day eco camp in Hamilo Coast also serves as an immersive natural classroom in environmental conservation. The expected output from the eco-camp is a Green Manifesto that outlines their plans to effect change and a storybook module co-authored by all the participants. The program will culminate through a series of mall and school tours throughout Metro Manila to boost youth engagement and student ambassador recruitment.

In a message sent by her excellency Vice President and Department of Education Secretary Sara Z. Duterte, she said, “This visionary program embodies the transformative power of education and empowerment in shaping a more sustainable and resilient future. Taking advantage of this program will give you all a head start on becoming influential figures in creating a more sustainable and ecologically aware culture”.


Together with its partners, WWF-Philippines hopes to empower young Filipinos further to become the next generation of sustainability champions. Programs like YOUth are the Future, can help future generations become proactive leaders who can #ChangeTheEnding for the planet.

SM Foundation's 2nd Rainwater Harvesting System Expands Sustainability

9:55:00 AM

Rainwater harvesting means collecting and saving rainwater for later. It's a good way to save water and not depend too much on regular water sources. Many old civilizations used it, and today, smart groups use it for eco-friendly water management.

SM Foundation, Inc., a part of the SM group focused on doing good for the community, has started using rainwater harvesting in two health centers they fixed up. They did this in Brgy. Irawan Birthing Facility in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, and San Fernando, Cebu Primary Health Care Facility.

Health workers in San Fernando, Cebu Primary Healthcare Facility water the locally sourced plants using the water from the rainwater harvesting system

SMFI’s Health and Medical Programs proactively implemented this innovation to help sustain the health of the local community while preserving the environment.

Ready in times of emergency

Dr. Alfredo P. Manugas VI, Municipal Health Officer and Health Department Head of San Fernando, Cebu Primary Health Care Facility, said that while water is crucial to their operations, water supply is not always available in their municipality, even their center.

“The rainwater harvesting system is essential in our health facility because the water supply in our municipality is not available 24/7,” he said. “We are now provided a source of water in times of emergency or any interruption of water supply. Our staff and visitors can use rainwater for cleaning, flushing the toilet bowls, and watering the plants.” 

SMFI Health and Medical Programs senior project manager Albert Uy runs through how the system functions.

SMFI ensures that the facility is convenient and manageable to maximize its purpose. It operates without electricity, increasing its sustainability. To harvest water for non-potable use, it collects rainwater from the roof and gutter. The water is filtered through vinyl-coated mesh filters to ensure its quality before being stored in the 800-liter storage tank.

To guide users for safe recycled water use, all faucets connected to the facility have visible labels. Alongside this innovation, SMFI also used air-cleaning paints, LED lighting fixtures and appliances, and locally sourced plants to create a clean and comfortable environment for patients and health workers.

These green innovations exemplify the SM group’s commitment to the environment and community health within the broader context of the SM Green Movement. With the social good impact of the two rainwater harvesting systems, SMFI targets to replicate this initiative in other health centers in its pipeline, further improving water security in the face of challenges.

SM Foundation provides life-saving aid to earthquake-ravaged communities in Turkey and Syria

7:55:00 AM


SM Foundation Inc. (SMFI) has extended a helping hand to Türkiye and Syria, two countries that were hit by devastating earthquakes. On February 27, 2023, SMFI sent aid through the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) to assist with relief efforts.

The aid was in the form of 200 units of gasoline generators, which were handed over to the PRC by SM Foundation Health and Medical Programs Executive Director Connie Angeles. These generators will provide power to the quake-stricken areas and will help to ensure that essential services, such as hospitals and emergency response centers, are able to operate.

SMFI’s Connie Angeles (second from left) hands the donation to PRC chairperson Dick Gordon (third from left). Joining the turnover are  PRC Governor Ernesto Isla and PRC Secretary General Dr. Gwen Pang (first and fourth from left, respectively). Photo from PRC.

In addition to the generators, SM Foundation also donated Php5 million to assist with the needs of earthquake victims. This contribution will go towards providing food, water, shelter, and medical supplies to those affected by the disaster.

The earthquakes that hit Türkiye and Syria were both extremely powerful. The first earthquake, which had a magnitude of 7.8, struck southeast Türkiye and northwest Syria, causing widespread damage and loss of life. This was followed by a magnitude 6.3 earthquake that hit southern Türkiye, leading to additional casualties and destruction.


SM Foundation's aid is an important gesture of solidarity with the people of Türkiye and Syria during this difficult time. The foundation has a long-standing commitment to supporting social good initiatives, and its efforts to provide assistance in the wake of natural disasters are just one example of its commitment to making a positive impact in the world.

Partnership in Conservation and Preservation, More than the Celebration of World Wildlife Day 2023

10:25:00 PM


World Wildlife Day is an annual celebration that takes place every 3rd day of March. This day is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats. The United Nations General Assembly first declared March 3rd as World Wildlife Day in 2013, and it has been celebrated every year since then.

The theme for World Wildlife Day changes every year and it varies. The theme for this year, 2023 is "Partnerships in Wildlife Conservation". This year's theme emphasizes the importance partner agencies, organizations and individuals. Ensuring a greener future for the next generations is not just the work of a lone individual but of a collective effort from everyone living on this planet. To enjoy the benefits of a healthy and diverse natural world. The theme also highlights the need for collective action to address the threats facing wildlife and their habitats.

World Wildlife Day is an opportunity for people around the world to learn about the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats. It is also a day to celebrate the achievements of conservation efforts and to raise awareness about the challenges that still need to be addressed. Thus, a recognition of all partners who have shared their expertise and efforts in conservation and preservation. 

One of the primary goals of World Wildlife Day is to raise awareness about the impact that human activities have on wildlife and their habitats. Activities like deforestation, poaching, and climate change have had a devastating impact on many species of animals and plants around the world. By raising awareness about these issues, we can work towards finding solutions to protect these species and their habitats.

Another important goal of World Wildlife Day is to promote sustainable use of natural resources. This means using natural resources in a way that ensures their availability for future generations. Sustainable use of natural resources also means taking steps to reduce the negative impact that human activities have on wildlife and their habitats.

Many organizations and individuals around the world celebrate World Wildlife Day by organizing events and activities. These includes educational workshops, wildlife tours, and conservation projects. These activities are designed to raise awareness about the importance of protecting wildlife and their habitats, as well as to inspire people to take action to help protect these species.

By working together we can address the challenges facing wildlife, we can ensure that future generations can enjoy the benefits of a healthy and diverse natural world.

The Colorful Philippine Jeepney: A Cultural Icon Under Threat of Extinction

10:36:00 PM


For many Filipinos, like me, the Jeepney is more than just a mode of transportation. It is a cultural icon that represents the country's history, creativity, and resilience. It needs to be preserved and maintained just like some of the historical and valuable pieces of our Philippine History. However, the Jeepney is now facing an uncertain future as the government plans to phase it out and replace it with modern mini-buses, which they call the modern jeep. If you're asking me, I don't find any resemblance of the jeep on that vehicle. It's more of a mini-bus for me. 

The Jeepney's Origins

The Jeepney has a fascinating origin story that reflects the Filipino's resourcefulness and ingenuity. It started after World War II when American military jeeps were left in the country. The Filipinos, being known for their knack for repairing and recycling things, transformed the war jeeps into colorful and flamboyant public utility vehicles. 

The first Jeepneys were bare-bones vehicles that could accommodate up to 20 passengers. But over the years, they evolved into a more elaborate form with ornate designs, flashy decals, and vibrant colors that reflect the driver's personality. 

One of the company's that flourished during the blossoming era of jeepney is the Sarao Motors Company. Unfortunately, the company wasn't able to cope up with the demand of time.  


The Jeepney's Cultural Significance

The Jeepney is more than just a means of transportation. It is a cultural symbol that reflects the Filipino's creativity, adaptability, and resilience. It is a ubiquitous sight in the country's urban landscape, with its distinct look and sound, and its ability to navigate through congested streets.

The Jeepney also serves as a canvas for the Filipino's artistic expression. Many Jeepney owners decorate their vehicles with intricate designs, bold colors, and witty slogans. Some even feature pop culture icons, political figures, or religious themes.

Moreover, the Jeepney is a source of livelihood for thousands of drivers, operators, and mechanics. It is a vital part of the country's public transportation system, serving as a cheap and accessible mode of transport for millions of Filipinos.

The Jeepney's Future

However, the Jeepney's future is now in peril as the government plans to phase it out and replace it with modern mini-buses. The Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) and the Land Transportation Office (LTO) cite the Jeepney's age, emissions, and safety concerns as the primary reasons for its phase-out. I just didn't get it. If the only problems was the emission and safety concerns why not evolve it and let that present jeepney be modernized and buy something that is not worth of our cultural heritage. 

The government's plan has sparked protests from Jeepney drivers, operators, and enthusiasts, who argue that the Jeepney is not only a cultural icon but also an affordable and accessible mode of transportation for many Filipinos. They also point out that the government's plan will displace thousands of Jeepney drivers and operators who depend on the vehicle for their livelihood.

The Fate of the Jeepneys

The Jeepney is more than just a mode of transportation. It is a cultural symbol that represents the Filipino's creativity, adaptability, and resilience. Its evolution from a war jeep to a colorful public utility vehicle is a testament to the Filipino's resourcefulness and ingenuity.

However, the Jeepney is  believe to bound for condemnation, phase out, and to be replaced. With what? With what they call jeep that does not resemble as a jeep but a mini bus. And take note each unit costs around Php2 Million which is intended to extended to drivers and operators as a loan. Do you think a jeepney driver can provide a monthly payment for that loan?

Now it is facing an uncertain future. They say they want it to be modernized but why do they have to buy something that does not shows or bears the historical value of the jeepney. As the move of LTO and LTFRB sparked protests and debates among Jeepney drivers, operators, and enthusiasts who argue that the Jeepney should be preserved as a cultural icon and as a vital part of the country's public transportation system, this matter will still be an issue to resolve. It's not a one done deal but probably a continuous effort of making everyone realize the value of the vehicle and of the driver. 

In conclusion, the Jeepney's fate is in the hands of the government and the Filipino people. It is up to us to decide whether to preserve this cultural icon or to replace it with modern vehicles. Whatever the decision may be, the Jeepney will always hold a special place in the hearts of the Filipinos and will remain a symbol of their unique identity and heritage.

SMFI and Maxeon's Sinag Schools program powers up school in Batangas

7:54:00 AM


It's school day once again and many of our children are excited and eager to go to school. There are some schools that started with their face-to-face classes already but there are some places that need more attention to make them more conducive for the students. 

SM Foundation (SMFI), the corporate social responsibility arm of the SM group, together with Maxeon Solar Technologies, recently powered up the Lemery Pilot Elementary School (LPES) in Batangas through the Sinag Schools program.

This social good collaboration between SMFI and Maxeon aims to provide clean and renewable energy to schools in grassroot communities by installing solar panels on an SM school building, especially to those that have low operating expenses.

In addition to the solar panel installation which intends to power positive change in the way energy is consumed in public schools, the program also aims to enhance the understanding of students in terms of energy management and the need to transition to cleaner energy alternatives with lower environmental impacts.


“Through this program, we want to power up the learning and development of young people. We want to help teach young people about solar energy, about renewable energy. We want to power up the next generation to help save our planet,” Maxeon Fab4 General Manager Glenn Everett said.

The SM school building at the LPES, which was donated by SMFI in partnership with SM Prime Holdings (SMPH) in 2017, now boasts 21 solar panels—estimated to produce 6510 watt-p. With the savings on electricity, the school may realign their budget to more efforts and other innovations that will give the students an environment more conducive to learning.

It takes a village to raise a child

SMFI executive director Debbie Sy underscored the importance of collective efforts in advancing the learning experience of every student in the country: “We believe that collaboration can drive growth and become a force for good in addressing societal challenges. CSR partnerships can create solutions that improve society by fostering learning, promoting innovation and gaining access to new technologies, such as the Sinag schools program. CSR collaboration can pool resources, both financial and human resources - between multiple organizations which can amplify social good impact.”

“The establishment of an ever-evolving CSR strategy and partnerships will help companies and non-government organizations in developing and implementing crucial social good programs over decades while having procedures in place that integrate social and environmental priorities into CSR core strategy – all in close collaboration with stakeholders,” she further added.

Moreover, Everett mentioned how SMFI and Maxeon share the similar set of values and interest when it comes to helping Filipino learners: “We have this concept of powering positive change in the world. We are happy to be working together with SM Foundation to power up the Lemery Pilot Elementary School.”

“Individually, we can do so much. But together we can do actually more. For us to bring our solar technology and SMFI to bring in their schools, these things are much better together than they would be apart,” he concluded.

Spreading social good all the way

SM Foundation made sure to truly touch the lives of the learners and teachers of LPES as it donated 
eight desktop computers, 200 bags with school supplies, and more than 160 pcs brand new kinder and elementary books to further promote the love for reading among the students. Clothing items for parents were also distributed.

Maxeon is headquartered in Singapore. The company designs, manufactures, and sells Maxeon® and SunPower® brand solar panels. Maxeon has sales operations in more than 100 countries, operating under the SunPower brand in certain countries outside the United States. Maxeon is a leader in solar innovation with products that span the global rooftop and solar power plant markets through a network of more than 1,700 trusted partners and distributors. A pioneer in sustainable solar manufacturing, Maxeon leverages a +35-year history in the solar industry and numerous awards for its technology.

SM Foundation, through its School Building Program, is an active partner of DepEd’s Adopt-a-School program. This social good initiative aims to promote quality public education by building classrooms nationwide. To date, it has turned over more than 100 school buildings to grassroots communities.

World Vision and its Partners, Continuing the Legacy of Changing the Lives of the Most Vulnerable Children

12:29:00 AM

As the Philippines welcomed another year, most Filipinos are anxious to see what the future holds. With everything the country experienced last 2020, a lot of people are doing their best to make the coming year different. Some have decided to make resolutions and pursue new opportunities, but for others, it is to continue the legacy of changing lives.

World Vision, together with its partners, continues the mission of helping the most vulnerable children and their communities led by its vision of seeing thousands or even millions of kids reach the fullness of life.

Through its campaign “A New Year of Firsts”, World Vision invites their sponsors to empower a child by enabling him or her to experience powerful and life-changing moments of firsts such as, for the first time a family could eat until they were full, a village could have clean water, a child could have all she needs to continue going to school, and a child could feel safe and protected. 

First Bountiful Harvest

For 14-year-old Karie, life was a series of hunger and fear of starvation – made worse with the onslaught of COVID-19. Yet, it was during this period that Karie and her family experienced a miracle she never imagined possible.

For the first time ever, she could wake up without worrying if there was enough food to eat. On the contrary, they had enough food to last them through the endless days of lockdown, even after the pandemic stripped the family of their only source of income.

With the seeds World Vision provided them and with training in sustainable farming techniques, for the first time, Karie’s backyard was home to a flourishing vegetable garden – a gift that could change her life for good. 


The Legacy of Firsts

World Vision Philippines has been helping children and their families out of poverty worldwide for over 60 years. With child sponsorship, children and their communities receive an opportunity for a better future.

“You don’t have to be rich to sponsor a child. All you need is the desire to be a bearer of hope”, shared Mae, a child sponsor through World Vision for 10 years.

Child sponsorship is not only making a difference in the lives of World Vision assisted communities, but is also transforming their donors as they experience a series of beautiful firsts with their sponsored children. 

“We are deeply grateful to all our partners for reaching out to the most vulnerable children. God first loved us so we are able show kindness to others. This year, may we be encouraged to help transform the lives of children and their families through child sponsorship”, said World Vision National Director Rommel V. Fuerte.
