Pledge Hands to save lives

by - October 13, 2013

Did you know that more than 3 million kids under the age of 5 die each year because of various disease-causing germs? One of the scariest reason behind that is actually due to improper or lack of hand washing. Imagine that? I have my own kids and I try to keep them safe at all times. But to know that a simple act as washing your hands properly plays a huge factor in their health.

That's why I'll be joining in Unilever's massive effort to reach out to as many as 3 million Pinoy children by teaching them how to properly wash their hands with soap. 

To kick this year's campaign, there will be a commitment event this coming October 18, 2013 for the biggest celebration of Global Hand washing day. :)

I always make sure that my kids wash their hands. But did you know that there are actually 5 steps to proper hand washing?

Through this you can already save lives and it's the most cost-effective health intervention. :)

With that, Unilever encourages everyone to take part of this advocacy by simply pledging and volunteering online: Everyone can sign up to pledge to teach one kid. With the help of more supportive Filipinos, the advocacy may be bigger, touching and saving more lives.

Let's make use of our time even if it's just for a day to help out kids to live longer and make a brighter future for all. :)

If any of you are interested to join in on October 18, 2013,  please feel free to message or email me. :) The more the merrier!
