Please read on to know how you can help or show your support for the Real Love Campaign and get a chance to win a Real Love Shirt right here on my blog.
A few years ago, my mother had her goiter taken out through surgery. She had to endure literally having a big lump on her throat because we couldn't afford the surgery yet. It was really hard for us and especially for her, having sleepless nights tihnking about her health. And, when she finally underwent surgery, it was the scariest time in my life even after the doctor assured me that it's a low risk surgery. I'm glad that afterwards, the doctor said that they were able to remove the goiter and cancerous cells in her throat. The surgery happened just in time. Now, my mother is enjoying life to the fullest.
When I read about Kythe, a non-stock, non-profit organization, I was genuinely touched by their kind hearts. They provide psychosocial care to children who were hospitalized or undergoing prolonged treatments in the hospital. Their main purpose is to uplift the spirits of these young kids and their families, and to strengthen their hope and determination to endure everything they're going through.
I can't imagine being a child and having to go through all those treatments, especially chemotherapy, at such a young age. It can really scar a child and his/her family for life. That is why I am so grateful that Kythe launched their Child Life Program, which aims to give hope to kids with cancer and their families through educational and fun activities wherein the kids learn more about their illness while playing.
The Real Love Campaign
In cooperation with Unilever Foodsolutions, Kythe is further empowered to improve the quality of life of these pediatric cancer patients by involving them in fun activities like cooking, making sandwiches, preparing heathy food, etc. This is through the Real Love campaign.
Unilever Foodsolutions also partnered with Team Manila to come up with a unique design for a limited-edition shirt for the Real Love campaign. I seriously love the shirt!
The Real Love shirt is sold at the retail price of Php 550. Part of the proceeds from sales of each shirt will go directly to the Kythe Foundation. This shirt is available in Team Manila outlets in SM Mall of Asia, Rockwell, Trinoma and through their website. You can buy a Real Love shirt for men or Real Love shirt for women. I say with the unique design, this is a perfect gift for your friends or loved one. You get to help the Real Love campaign at the same time!
Show your Support through Real Love Campaign on Facebook
Aside from the sales of the Real Love shirt, YOU can also help by "Liking" the Facebook page of the Real Love campaign. For every 1,000 "Likes" until the number reaches 10,000, Unilever Foodsolutions has committed to donate 1,000 sandwiches to the different hospitals partnered with Kythe foundation. That's the easiest thing you can do to help the Real Love Campaign.
