I know some people who are greatly affected by cancer. But one of the most unforgettable stories I heard was with my Ninang Dada. I couldn’t believed how this cancer could easily take the life of someone who’s so kind and nice to everyone. She’s so awesome in so many ways. Among all my godparents, she’s the closest to me.
In 2006, she was diagnosed with colon cancer and just September of last year, Ninang left us to join our Mighty Creator. But her memories will always be here with us – her smiles and soft spoken voice.
I know how it feels like being so down and hopeless but no one could ever say how she felt when she was in pain and struggling for her life. I know hot it feels like being helpless but her optimism and faith gave strength and hope to each one of us during her struggling days. Sometimes, when you’re out there, you just wanted to cry to release everything because that’s all you can do aside from praying to save her life.
And because of my Ninang’s story, I am inspired to support this cause.
I am supporting Kythe‘s Child Life Program which aims to uplift and give hope to kids with cancer.
Real Love: The Campaign
In cooperation with Unilever Foodsolutions, Kythe is spearheading this Real Love Campaign outreach programs which enables kids with cancers to interact and create fun and healthy sandwiches care of Lady’s Choice and Best Foods mayonnaise.
Also, in partnership with Team Manila, the store released a specially designed, limited edition shirt available in Team Manila outlets in Rockwell, SM Mall of Asia, TriNoma and on their online site. For only PhP 550, part of the proceeds of the shirt will go directly to Kythe. Check the links here: (men, women).
Real Love Campaign is also in Facebook. With every 1,000 ‘Likes’ until it reaches 10,000, Unilever will give 1,000 sandwiches to Kythe’s partner hospitals.
In line with this campaign, I am hosting this mini-contest for a cause. Thanks to Ms. Janette Toral for making this contest possible. This is just simple as our goal is to spread Real Love. At stake is a Real Love limited edition shirt!
