This Christmas season, I will be hosting my very first giveaway. 🙂
You know how ecstatic I was about getting my 2010 planner right? If I didn’t come across as excited when I wrote about it, surely my friends from the office could attest to that *chuckles.* Now I am aware that there are other Pinoy bloggers out there who are running contests to giveaway the coveted Starbucks planner, and there are many more who are collecting the stickers themselves (and emptying their pockets *grin*). So far be it for me to host another one of those. Besides, I don’t have the Gs to buy 13 cups of frappuccinos in order to complete the stickers before the month ends.
Without further ado, let me announce the star of this giveaway:
The 2010 Got Heart Planner is from Got Heart Foundation. Here’s a description from their Multiply website:
Featuring at least twelve indigenous communities in the Philippines, the paintings of an Obo Manobo, Retchor “Ettok” Umpan, and passages written by young indigenous peoples themselves, the GOT HEART 2010 PLANNER is both interactive and youthful with its numerous activities and amazing information. The Planner also has different activities that will allow you to discover more about our IPs in fun and light ways. Aside from promoting love of culture, the GOT HEART PLANNER proceeds will help fund the foundation’s projects for the indigenous peoples, specially a T’boli School in Cotabato.
I didn’t get much information about the foundation on their website, but I’m sure if you contact them in the channels they provided, you can learn more about specific projects they are sponsoring. I intend to do that one of these days.
If you’ve followed my blog long enough, you would know about my preference for charities and causes concerning children and upholding their rights. But the causes of indigenous peoples are right up my alley too. My grandparents’ families hail from the mountain regions of the Cordilleras, from Bangaan, Sagada, Mt. Province to be exact. Although I don’t speak Igorot, I am one. [I already ordered one for my mom, by the way.]
This giveaway is open to anyone with an address in the Philippines. If you are from another country, you may still join and then maybe give the planner as a gift to a friend in the Philippines 🙂 I take care of both the gift, and the shipping. Isn’t that awesome? 🙂
The contest will run from today until after Christmas. I will draw a winner (via electronic raffle or old school raffle, I haven’t decided yet) on December 26. Since the people behind the planner do not ship on weekends and I assume they also don’t do that during holiday, please allow until the first week of January for shipping. 🙂
