Buy a beautiful item and help children at the same time. UNICEF Philippines and Daphne Oseña Paez presents UNICEF Auction for Action last week at the UNICEF Phils Office in celebration of the 20th year of National Children's Month. On its 2nd year of Auction for Action, the theme of the annual national celebration that puts rights center stage for all Filipino children is the right of children to play.
Gathering the art lovers and collectors from all over the Philippines starting on October 1-7, 2012 at Ebay Philippines for the chance to bid for high quality items starting at 40% discount will not just fund the education, health and nutrition of children supported by UNICEF Philippines. It will also provide enough funds for the protection and emergency programs hardest to reach and most in need according to Tomoo Hazumi, UNICEF Country Representative.
I really love Ramon Orlina's Carved Peach Amber Crystal and JJ Zamorano's Vomit Boy sculptures. Notable Filipino artists and designers will help make a difference for children like Manuel Baldemor, Otep Bañez, Elmer Borlongan, Gregory Halili, Raymond Legaspi, Popo San Pascual, Baby Valencia, Bernard Vista and Willibald Zeck among the artists.
From the Galerie Joaqin Gallery will be Aldrino Abes, Jovan Benito, Vincent de Pio, Jomar Delluba, Hamzah Marbella, Mario Parial, Dominic Rubio, Juvenal Sanso and Lydia Velasco. Remy Boquiren, Antonio De Leon, Adler Llagas, Jun Martinez, Nemy Miranda, Jun Morondez and Ranino Quinto from the Exhibition Center of Contemporary Arts. From the Filipino Portrait Artists Guild Inc will be Don Artificio, Angelito Balmes, Carlos "Cee" Cadid, Romy Carlos, Ben Infante, Norlie Meimban, Felix Jesus "Ely" Meimban IV, and Jonahmar Salbosa will join. Dex Fernandez aka Garapata Man, Kawayantech, Epjey Pacheco, Paolo Vinluan, JJ Zamorano and Whoop from the Secret Fresh Gallery. World-class sculptures by Michael Cacnio, Seb Chua, Daniel Dela Cruz, Pete Jimenez, Ramon Orlina, Agi Pagkatipunan and Isabel Roxas will also be included.
It's not just toys and pieces for the boys because the women will drool and bid Jewelry and Fashion Accessories created by Accessory Lab, Amina Aranaz, Kristine Dee, Janina Dizon, Jewelmer, Joyce Makitalo, Paul Syjuco and Nicole Whisenhunt. The cause to provide and reach disadvantaged children with UNICEF Philippines Auction for Action on Oct. 1-7, 2012 will push the inspiration to action and we are all affected with the advocacy.
