our South Asian neighbors. The outpouring of help was incredible.

helped us come face-to-face with you:
We wanted to meet you and talk to you about the work that
we do, face to face, and so Philtrade

gave UNICEF free space in their exhibits and bazaars while
Sta. Lucia East,

helped provide clean water and sanitary toilet facilities
Long-time UNICEF partner Procter

sure children and the communities they live in are given access

donation of P2 million assures that water-bourne
diseases are kept at bay and school children practice safe
hygiene in UNICEF-assisted provinces and cities.
helped us reach greater heights for education:
SEAIR and Dornier
Technology Incorporated started a historic
"Flight for Dreams" to 50 destinations around the
world. Called "Kayang-Kaya! Historic Flight for Dreams",
the campaign helped raise awareness on children's rights,
specially the right to education. This historic and nostalgic
flight on the vintage DO24ATT also raised more than US$61,000
for the education programme of UNICEF.
helped us reach those in need of urgent help:
SEAIR and Sprint
helped UNICEF provide swift emergency relief to communities
ravaged by the super typhoons that hit the country in December
2004. SEAIR readily lent an aircraft while Sprint shouldered
the fuel cost.
helped spark hope in communities:
with UNICEF launched SparkHope, a giving-back-to-the community
programme that allows each Starbucks store in the Philippines
to adopt a barangay and provide for early childhood care and
stimulation for children below six years old in that barangay.
A SparkHope corner
can be found in every Starbucks store. It shows photos of
the adopted barangay and information on UNICEF's early childhood
care and development programme. A donation drop box can also
be found there.

number of stamps, customers can redeem an annual planner.
For each planner, UNICEF receives a P50 donation.

P1.7 million for UNICEF's early childhood
care programme and for the victimes of the December tsunami.
helped make donating to UNICEF easy and accessible:
in Metro Manila malls and gas stations are now accepting donations
to UNICEF. iRemit
gives our overseas Filipino workers in Hongkong, Singapore,
Taiwan and the United Kingdom a way to donate to UNICEF. Information
Gateway has made SMS and MMS-sending a tool
to make a difference in children's lives. When you send UNICEF
greeting card images to your friends, a portion of the cost
of the message will go to UNICEF. For UNICEF, Information
Gateway waived its usual P1 million set-up fee. GCash allows
to donate to UNICEF using their GCash credits.
