Cancer is the third leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the Philippines. My aunt died of breast cancer and so did my cousin. I would not want to lose another family member and you wouldn't to. Least we can all do as concerned citizens is to support causes that help ease the pain of cancer. In coordination with Maria Fatima Garcia-Lorenzo and Icar Castro, both Psychology graduate students from Ateneo formed Kythe- a non-stock, non-profit organization, Kythe spearheaded the Child Life Program to uplift and give hope to kids with cancer and their families through education and developmental activities enable them to be more knowledgeable of their illness and experience different hands on activities.
In partnership with Unilever Foodsolutions, Kythe launched the REAL LOVE Campaign to make kids with cancer able to interact and create fun and healthy sandwiches made of different ingredients and Lady’s Choice and Best Foods mayonnaise.
In lieu of this, Unilever Foodsolutions also partnered with Team Manila to come up with a specially designed, limited-edition shirt which will be available in Team Manila outlets in Rockwell, SM Mall of Asia, Trinoma and online through its website.
Unilever Foodsolutions shares the experience of giving back to the public as with the retail price of 550 pesos, part of the proceeds of the sale of each shirt (men, women) will go directly to Kythe Foundation and its operations for cancer-stricken kids.
In addition, Unilever Foodsolutions created a Facebook page dedicated to the Real Love campaign. With every 1,000 “Like” entries until it reaches 10,000 fans, Unilever Foodsolutions will donate 1,000 sandwiches to the different Kythe partner hospitals.
We can all support the campaign by buying the Real Love Limited Edition T-shirt designed by Team Manila or join this contest in cooperation with The Influential Blogger, Ms. Janette Toral who helps spread the campaign to support the said cause. Spread the LIKES to Facebook page of Real Love campaign and win the Real Love T-shirt.
