MicroSourcing Joins Dream in a Shoebox
In this season of joy and giving, MicroSourcing was given a wonderful opportunity to be part of My Dream in a Shoebox - an initiative that aims to give shoeboxes filled with school supplies to less fortunate children.
Now on its third year, this program was spearheaded by outsourcing industry body Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) and marketing communications company TeamAsia.
The first distribution day was held last December 19 in three schools in Lipa, Batangas. More than 700 shoeboxes and 10 PCs were given to the students of Tambo Elementary School, 400 shoeboxes and 10 PCs to Paninsingin Elementary School, and 500 shoeboxes and 10 PCs to Pinagkawitan Elementary School.
Nona Tajanlangit-Kooijman, Head of PR and Social Media Marketing, encouraged all MicroSourcing employees to be a Shoebox Sponsor. They gave shoeboxes with school supplies, while others donated Php50 for a set of items per box.
In the end, the company was able to donate more than 300 shoeboxes and a total of Php14000 in cash.
Aside from these, MicroSourcing also plans to donate five PCs for the computer laboratories of the chosen schools.
A lot of companies served as sponsors to this outreach program. These include Teletech, Chevron, Shell, FirstSource, PacificHub, Fujitsu, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Henkel, Avis, Stellar, Bank of America, ePLDT, and StarTek.
