ROCK and RUN on June 19!

Hi Friends!

As some of you may or may not know, I’m part of a non-profit organization called REPUBLIKHA, and we are PASSIONATE about empowering the next generation through music. Or to break it down further, we work with artists, musicians, educators, parenting advocates, and people from the academe and the music industry to create high-quality educational children’s music that we can distribute for FREE (together with Parent and Teachers’ Manuals too!) to public schools and community day care centers all over the Philippines. Because how awesome (and effective!) would it be to teach preschool children about lessons like counting, colors, making friends, saving money, conserving energy, and more through English and Filipino music? :)

That’s our vision, but we need help to make the vision a reality! We’re set to release our album for preschool children before the end of the year (the songs–written and performed by some of the country’s best artists like Barbie Almalbis, Julianne, The Dawn, Rivermaya, Itchyworms, Coffeebreak Island, Brigada, Lougee Basabas, DJ Benjo Marquez, Salamin, Joey Ayala, Cynthia Alexander, and a lot more–have already been tested in classrooms and are ready to be produced), but in order to do that, we need to raise the finances that are required to produce the albums and the manuals.

Thanks to our friends from JCI Manila, CANON, BROOKS, CROCS, and RED BULL (and more), we have a chance to reach our goal. ROCK and RUN is happening on June 19, Saturday, 5 pm onwards at the Bonifacio Global City, and it’s a one-of-a-kind run that will feature live bands like The Dawn, Kjwan, Taken By Cars, Brigada, Coffeebreak Island, and more, performing along the race route. How fun is that?!

And of course, the best news is that they’ve chosen REPUBLIKHA to be the beneficiary, which has been an enormous blessing for us this year. So here’s where I ask you to be a part of our exciting journey by literally RUNNING with us! (And by “us”, I mean REPUBLIKHA and friends because I’ll still be in the USA…but I’ll be running with you in spirit!!!)
