UNICEF and Cebu Pacific partners for Change for Good campaign which will make a child’s first 1000 days disease-free and well taken care of. Each currency that every Cebu Pacific flying passengers donate to Change for Good will go directly to UNICEF to fund the daily needs of less-fortunate kids in the Philippines up to their 1,000 growing days.
*I always fly to different countries and have seen these on-flight donations and I wonder to myself, ‘when are we going to have this project in my country where an airline will support UNICEF’s Change for Good?’ shared actress Anne Curtis-Smith who is UNICEF’s Celebrity Advocate for Children, during the launch of the campaign last Thursday at Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila.
“We are very happy to announce and welcome Cebu Pacific to Change for Good campaign. They are the first budget airline in the Philippines to support us in this project,” said Lotta Sylwander, UNICEF Philippines country representative.
“We are very thankful to Cebu pacific for empowering its thousands of everyday passengers to contribute through their own small way, towards helping providing health and wellness to children in the most at-risk communities.”
The first 1,000 days of a child are crucial to physical and mental growth and is the foundation of the child’s ability to grow, learn, and earn later in life.
Mr. Pure Energy himself, Gary Valenciano, UNICEF National Ambassador, is sharing his talent to this campaign by dedicating a song which he wrote for this project and will be included in an upcoming album and project titled ‘Awit at Laro’ collaboration with the actress.
“Change for Good is extraordinary opportunity to help lay the foundation for the Philippines’ future. The team looks forward to working hand in hand with our guests in making a difference in many children’s lives,” said Lance Gokongwei, Cebu Pacific President and CEO.
Cebu Pacific is Philippines’ leading airline and is Change for Good’s launch partner in Southeast Asia.
