About World Vision Child Sponsorship

The best way to help a child is to help his community become a better place to grow up in. For a donation of P600 a month, you will help provide children and his community with access to: education, health care, nutritious food, clean water, livelihood opportunities and more.

Child sponsorship ensures that the community will be able to provide children with the basics they need to help them grow up in a healthy environment and have a chance for a better, more sustainable future.

How Child Sponsorship Works

Child sponsorship is an exciting journey of transformation – for the child you’re helping and for you especially if you use all the tools available to help you bond with your sponsored child.

It works by linking a poor child to an individual/ group who is committed to give a regular gift of P600 a month per child or P7,200 a year. Your monthly pledge is pooled with those of other child sponsors in the Philippines and overseas. Pooling together resources/ donations enables World Vision to maximize the productivity of every peso.

When you decide to sponsor a child, you’ll meet the child that you’ll be sponsoring by receiving a welcome kit that includes your sponsored child’s photo and profile, along with ways to connect and be updated with your new sponsored child.

Sponsorship fosters sustainability. World Vision plans and works alongside community members to help build healthy communities for children.

With the goal of making integrity everyone’s concern and part of daily life, the Integrity Initiative – spearheaded by the Makati Business Club, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP), the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (AMCHAM), the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), and Financial Executives of the Philippines (Finex)- is staging a historic run on December 12, 2015 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City.

Dubbed “I RUN for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution,” the event calls on all sectors of society to participate in this important step towards building a culture of integrity in the Philippines. It is expected to bring together 5,000 representatives and runners from government, business, youth, civil society, academe, church, and media towards the common goal of being part of the solution in fighting corruption.

At The I Run For Integrity launch

The event comes on the heels of the highly successful 2011 and 2012 editions of the run, which united a total of 12,000 runners. ECCP organizes this year’s running event in support of the Integrity Initiative, a private sector-led campaign that aims to promote common ethical standards among all sectors.

Established in 2009 by the Makati Business Club and ECCP, the Integrity Initiative operates on the principle of inclusion and collective action, and works on making the Philippines a leader in promoting an ethical business environment while eliminating negative practices. Since then, a good progress has been made to get the collective action against corruption and unethical business practices going. 2,000 company chief executives, 1,500 DPWH contractors, 42 high government officials, and 140 business organizations have already signified support to the Integrity Initiative and signed the Integrity Pledge.

Additionally, the Integrity Initiative has rolled-out a unified code of conduct in 2012, and the basic guidelines for ethical business behavior; introduced an online self-assessment tool to all signatories, which can be used to evaluate the areas for improvement in the integrity system within their organization; developed a validation process to validate the ratings from the self-assessment tool and will soon pilot a certification process for businesses.

“While the Integrity Initiative has already accomplished notable milestones, there’s still a lot that needs to be done. One of which is to encourage more engagement from individuals, especially the youth, to act with and uphold the value of integrity. This is why the theme of this year’s run is ‘I RUN for Integrity: I am part of the solution.’ The individual acts of integrity are sure to deliver remarkable collective result in the long run. Participating in the run event is a symbolic gesture of pledging to act with integrity,” said Henry Schumacher, Vice President of ECCP and the Integrity Initiative, Inc. “We expect this event to be another show of force by Filipinos from all walks of life who want to finish victorious over our fight with corruption. With this event, we seek to make integrity everyone’s mission,” Schumacher added.

Runners for the “I Run for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution” can choose to participate in the 3K, 5K, and 10K categories. Registration can be made at Chris’ Sports branches in Glorietta 3, Mall of Asia, Market! Market! and SM Megamall until December 4 only. Late registration is until December 7 or until race kits last at the ECCP office in Makati. Registration fee is at PHP 550, while a group of ten participants can avail of the 10 + 1 package. Accomplished runners get to bring home “I Run for Integrity” finisher shirt, baller band, and tokens from event sponsors. Special prizes also await top finishers of the event.

The “I RUN for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution” event forms part of this year’s Integrity Nation Now campaign of the Integrity Initiative to further solidify their goal of instilling integrity and combating corruption in the country.

In addition to the running event, the Integrity Initiative will also hold the 5th Integrity Summit on December 9, 2015 at Shangri-la Hotel in Makati City. The summit is expected to gather business leaders, anti-corruption and good governance experts, as well as key representatives from the government, church, youth, academe, and other agencies to continue to highlight the progress of the private sector in promoting ethical standards in business. The summit coincides with the celebration of the International Anti-Corruption Day.

Rexona Run 2012: On September 23* at MOA!

*(Re-scheduled to September 23, 2012)

Recently, i was thinking about races organized by Runrio which had a great impact on runners in terms of enjoyment, after race festivities and the active support and participation of its main sponsor. Outside of the Unilab Run United Series, the race that comes to mind is the Rexona Run, sponsored by Unilever.

21k, hot sizzling route, it’s always an event to look forward to plus you get to bring home all of their underarm deodorants in all variants after the race! The race was often accompanied by some kind of post-race contests of adventure trips locally and abroad.

Well, this year’s race set this coming September 23, 2012 at the MOA will see another attraction when they present the 21k relay wherein 2 runners (both male or female or mixed) will run about 10.5kms each and vie for the 1st Rexona relay championship and win fabulous prizes.

Also, Pacers will be deployed to help runners achieve their running goals for the 21k Individual Category, 21k Relay and the 5KM race. For more of the pacer details or those who would like to volunteer to act as Pacers, check out the Runrio site on Facebook, here: or Vima Mendoza’s Kulit on the Run blog.

This will be another memorable race, one Unilever will undoubtedly put its all-out support and make all runners happy and sweet-smelling!

Here are the details of the race:

Rexona Run 2012 challenges you to outrun yourself

Prepare to push yourself to the limits when Rexona Run 2012 unfolds on September 23 at the SM Mall of Asia grounds.  Presented by Rexona Men, the much-anticipated event promises to raise the bar even higher.  With a new category, more prizes and exciting features that will surely test the mettle of even the most seasoned runners.

Participants can choose from among three race categories: 5K, 21K Solo and for the first time ever, the 21K Relay.  The new category is designed to inspire 5K and 10K runners to raise their level by taking part in the more challenging 21K race, where a team of 2 runners will run a relay for them to finish the 21K distance.

Apart from cash prizes and medals for the top finishers, commemorative key chains will also be awarded to finishers who manage to beat the recommended finishing time for a challenge.  To qualify, 5K runners must cross the finish line 30 minutes after gun start at 6:20am, and all 21K participants need to finish within 2 hours at 7:00am.

To ensure that each participant keeps within their target finishing time, pacers shall be deployed for each race category.

Helping runners train and commit to a faster finishing time, Rexona Run 2012 has created the Rexona Run Outrun Yourself App, which can be downloaded for free via the Rexona Men Facebook page.  The app will help runners set a target time for the category to be run courtesy of a running playlist and occasional voice over as their time check, which they can listen to while training.  During the actual run, the app can also be used to help runners set their pace.

More than just promoting wellness through running, Rexona also strongly espouses the responsible running.  For Rexona Run 2012, trash bins will be placed in strategic locations so runners can properly discard used water bottles, sponges and other trash.  This gives runners a cleaner and more pleasant race route, now and in succeeding editions of Rexona Run.

“Each year, Rexona manages to raise the bar and this year will be no different.  We not only made this year’s race fun, exciting and safe, but we’re also introducing new developments that will surely inspire running enthusiasts, both professional and recreational types, to strive to outrun themselves,” says Rexona brand manager Anne Remulla.

Prizes for the top three finishers in the 21K Solo include Php 7,000 for first, 5,500 second and 4,000 for third, while the podium finishers in the 21K Relay take home Php 5,000 for first, 4,000 for second and 3,000 for third for each member of the team.  Top three finishers in the 5K category go home with Php 4,000, 3,000 and 2,000 for first, second and third placers, respectively

Registration is ongoing until July 29 at Riovana stores in Bonifacio Global City and Katipunan and Toby’s branches in Trinoma and SM Mall of Asia.  Online registrations are also accepted at from now until 12 midnight of July 22.

Run United-1, 2012 All Set

One of the most successful running series held last year, the Run United Race Series will once again hug the limelight with the staging of Run United-1, 2012. and will be held on March 4, with 500m, 3k, 5k, 10k and 21k race categories. All categories except for 21k will start and finish at the SM Mall of Asia while 21k will start at Bonifacio Global City and finish at SM Mall of Asia.

Runrio and Unilab have promised to make this year’s series more enjoyable and organized. Here are the details of the race:


The Run United 1 21km Finisher’s Medal is a unique medal by itself and at the same time is a unique part of a 3-piece puzzle made up of medals from the RunRio Trilogy/Run United Series legs. Register and Finish the 21km/21km/32km of legs 1/2/3 respectively and form the medal puzzle which is the 2012 unique RunRio Trilog/Run United Series Trilogy Puzzle!


10k Route

5k Route

21k Route.


The organizers will be providing a SHUTTLE SERVICE for 21km participants. The service will have the SM Mall of Asia as its pick-up point and will bring the 21km runners to the 21km starting line at the BGC. Why SM Mall of Asia as pick-up point? Consideration was given to 21km runners who may have other members of the family who will be running a shorter distance so SM Mall of Asia is a more feasible originating point. Besides, there are more available parking areas there than in BGC.

More details and mechanics for the Shuttle Service will be posted once available.


Baggage Services will be available at the BGC race area in the form of ROVING BAGGAGE SERVICE VANS which will be on standby prior to race start and will move to the SM Mall of Asia to bring these checked-in baggages to the designated Baggage Claim Areas.

Goldilocks Race: Did You Get A Nice Tan?

Part of the 8,000 plus runners

If you were at the Goldilocks race last Sunday or running elsewhere that morning, one thing must have bogged you down—the heat! I was like carrying a ton of cement on my back and it’s so miserable when you really want to pick up the pace but cannot. Not even the more than adequate water stations could alleviate the scorching heat. I even saw some runners getting whole bottles of water and literally pouring the contents in their head and bodies.

After finishing my 5k run, i had planned to do another 5k so i could increase more mileage for the week but after the extra 2k run and the dry humidity, i decided to call it quits and just jogged back to the race activities at the starting line and get back into the shades.

The usual warm-ups before the race. The high humidity was enough to make us all sweat!

I think races should start earlier during these summer months and i could only sympathize with my friends who ran the 21k and suffered cramps during the race that they had to walk-run under the shades of trees along Buendia Avenue just to survive and reach the finish in one piece. For 21k races, the run should start at about 4:30am to at least spare them from the heat going into the latter stages of the race.

With the gang before the race, Leo, Betty and Sylvia in her natural tan:-)

With one of the families i met at the race

The conduct of the race was however, very exemplary and i think Runrio did a good job in providing those super long water stations with both cold water and Powerade flowing non-stop to the runners.

Congrats to those who PR’ed if ever, and to those sporting a nice tan. Wished the organizers provide sun block sachets too.:-) Who needs tanning in a beach anyway?

Tan or burn?
