Boardwalk’s Eat.Play.Blog. Bloggers’ Forum

Although I have heard about the Boardwalk brand some years ago, it was only last week that I had the privilege to have a closer look at what it is beyond what I formerly thought of as just some random MLM clothing company business. Sure, I did have an inkling that it has made quite a name for itself since it was launched given that they have big time endorsers that I now see on highway billboards – Kris Aquino, Derek Ramsey, to name a few. But being pro-active in doing their share in preserving the environment as they do their thing is something else altogether.

Boardwalk Business Ventures, Inc. supports 11.20.2011 A Run For The Pasig River. This is spearheaded by the ABS-CBN Foundation, an event that promotes a safe and clean Pasig River and aims to bring back its former glory. You might want to register for the upcoming event – Run for the Pasig River.

Last week, held at Ming’s Restaurant in Ortigas was Boardwalk’s First Blogger’s Forum and Kikay Corner was one of the few bloggers who were invited. Aside from learning about Boardwalk’s advocacy run for Pasig River, they also discussed how the business works and the fun of being a personal shopper.


Celebrity Ukay Ukay Launch via Ebay

This coming Friday, July 15, Ogie and Regine’s Celebrity Ukay Ukay will be launched officially via ebay.ph. Seven interesting finds formerly owned by our very own well known artists will be up for grabs before the week ends.  Let me just say that this online shopping are notches ahead of what we usually do when we go splurging through our usual online shopping.

Ogie and Regine’s Celebrity Ukay Ukay‘s sole recipient for its sales is GMA Kapuso Foundation.  This particular auction zeroing in on Kapuso School Development Project (KSD).  Our local celebrities are giving away their stuff (most of which cost a lot) for this particular project.  Now this is something online shoppers might as well swerve to – shopping for a cause. Present during yesterday’s press con was GMA Kapuso Foundation’s Vice President/COO Mel Tiangco, sharing with us the burden of the plight of our country’s underprivileged students.

This will certainly give us a whole new way of looking at shopping. We’re not just guaranteed with authentic and good quality stuff, we’re also helping provide students of underserved public schools all over the country with decent and functional classrooms with water distribution and sanitation facilities and environmental awareness through tree planting around the school building. How’s that for making a difference in the third world where organizations like this (unbeknownst to a whole bunch of people) are actively doing for our fellowmen?  It is plain admirable, in my opinion.

Mr. Henry Perez, GMA Kapuso Foundation’s Executive Director shared with us that since 2003, the Kapuso Development Project has constructed and repaired 250 classrooms in the poorest and remotest communities across the country.   Those who were affected by Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng in 2009 benefited from the 89 classrooms that were built by the KDP last year.

Celebrity Ukay Ukay will be jumpstarted with items donated by Chris Tiu, Dingdong Dantes, Ogie Alcasid, Kris Aquino, John Lapuz and Sharon Cuneta on July 15.

Chris Tiu’s autographed jersey will be up for auction with bid price starting at P499. Chris Tiu wore this when he played in one of the games for GMA network. (more…)
