PLDT HOME Fibr Brings the World no. 1 Tennis Legend Serena Williams

MANILA, November 26, 2015 – The country’s most powerful broadband PLDT HOME Fibr is set to bring in the world’s top tennis players for season two of the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) once again.
Commencing on December 2 in Kobe, Japan, the IPTL’s three-day Manila-leg will be played from December 6-8 at the Mall of Asia Arena as part of a five-nation tour. Scheduled stops at New Delhi, Dubai, and Singapore will follow.

Get Ready for A Very Special Run Called 'SpeEd unLIMITed'

When a parent is gifted a child with special needs, one of the greatest challenges is learning how to make him or her grow with whatever ability is given.  Facing the challenges of everyday life becomes a marathon that seems to never have a finish line. Yet, parents of children with special needs will always find ways to make their children experience the best of life – including sports.
A sport gives children with special needs the boost of confidence to be at their best.  Running to finish a race becomes a goal so precious. With these children, winning does not mean being the first to get the medal.  Winning simply means being your best to achieve the goal.
his year, The Child’s World Family and Friends, invites everyone to support Speed Unlimited, a race for children with special needs.  Organized with Pinoy Aspiring Runners (PAR), it will be held on January 31, 2016 at the CCP Complex.  Each child participant with a special need is allowed an additional race bib and free registra…

World Vision Christmas Campaign: Share Joy, Give a Noche Buena!

Our fondest and earliest memories of Christmas -- aside from the usual ornaments like the Christmas tree, parol, and the anticipation of gifts from Santa, will always be the feast on the table that family members enjoy together on that special eve.  Noche Buena always brings us back to good memories shared with family and loved ones. Truly, no Pinoy Christmas celebration is ever complete without it!
The picture of a beautiful Christmas is to have every family member gathered around the table for a hearty Christmas dinner. Sadly, though, many families are not privileged to enjoy this once-a-year treat. 

World Vision invites you to share the joy of Christmas to our less fortunate brothers and sisters once again by giving them a gift of a Noche Buena pack. For only PHP PHP 1,000 you are already providing a bountiful Noche Buena meal for two families -- which consists of ingredients for a Spaghetti meal, fruit salad, and an assortment of Christmas goodies.

#NowPH: A One Million Filipino Youth Voices for Climate Action Campaign

Since the Philippines is now one of the most vulnerable countries to climate and disaster risks as it ranked third most vulnerable country to extreme weather events in 2013 when Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) wrought havoc in the Visayas region, Filipino youth joined hands in building an advocacy to combat this climate change. The campaign is dubbed as "Not on Our Watch (NOW)" or simply #NowPH.

US Best Doctor Cites RP in Early Stages of Obesity

Dr. David Heber, a 13-time recipient of the title Best Doctor in America, had admonished Filipinos citing that the Philippines is in the early stage of the global nutrition transition with 29% of its population now classified as “obese and overweight.”
Heber, who was also named by international news agency Reuters as one of the Most Influential Scientific Minds in 2014, had explained that the global nutrition transition refers to a state wherein a country experiences both the prevalence of obesity and malnutrition.  
“America is the world champion of obesity. In China, however, 10% of its 120 million people has Type 2 diabetes. About 500 million are of them are believed to have prediabetic metabolic syndrome…The absolute epicenter (in Asia) of obesity is China and India.

Cherry Mobile Brings Filipinos to their OFW Loved Ones via #CherryChrismas Promo

Christmas is the season of love and thanksgiving. And it is also a time most cherished by Filipinos, because more than the Noche Buena and the gift giving, we relish the precious moments spent with family and loved ones. 
Christmas, however,isalso bittersweet, especially for our hardworking OFWs. 
While they brim with pride, sending their families Balikbayan boxes full of gifts and goodies, they are unable to see firsthand the joy and smiles that they bring. Many OFWs would prefer to be with their loved ones this holiday, however, distance and circumstance prohibit them.
