GIVING BACK AT TOMS GIVE FAIR 2015


Christmas is finally here! It's one of my favorite seasons because it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. My most favorite part of the season is the giving part. I would always give gifts to all of my classmates back in grade school and high school even if I'd get none in return (This is a true story btw hahahuhu) 'cause I always feel generous. And since I really love to give, it didn't take long for me to accept Toms Philippines' invitation for me to go to their Give Fair!

Toms treated us to a day of fun-filled activities both for the young and young-at-heart. My fave part is the free food HEHE especially the free fishball! I was too shy to play the other games but I tried my luck at the Pop the Balloon booth and I won a mug.

It's a whole different world inside the Toms store. If you want to take a break from the crazy fun that is going on outside, step inside to chill, try out different activities and maybe have a cup of coffee from Toms. Inside you'll get to paint your own Toms shoes in cookie form, experience virtual reality and have your own pair of Toms customized!

I also brought my younger sister with me to the event!

One for one is not just about shoes. They also have eyewear and with every pair you purchase, they will help give sight to a person in need.



I got to immerse myself in my first virtual reality experience and it was really cool. Not only do you get to look around in 360 degrees, you also get to see the film in stereoscopic 3D which puts you right in the fil. The film playing was a Toms documentary about their One for One initiative at one of their supported communities in other continents.

Beyond the booths and the freebies, the sole reason that I was there is because of the initiative to give back. This year was a bit crazy for me because of the milestones that I conquered and amazing opportunities that I received. I figured I had to dedicate some of my time to helping others and this was one of them.



Toms partnered up with Kids For Kids to provide a huge amount of Tic-Tac-Toe wooden play sets for us to customize. There's a specific set for boys and girls and you'll also get to know the name of the kid you're making it for.

For the boy's design, I used the color scheme of my logo. WEW. Cinareer ko talaga siya guys.

For the girl, I gave her toy the Disney Princess treatment. HAHA pagbigyan niyo na ako guys. I think we were supposed to make only one but I enjoyed it too much so I made two. This is my first to go to the Give Fair and I'm really curious about what they'll do next year.


The event was capped off by an amazing performance by Clara Benin! Her performance got me hooked with her music. You should check out her original songs!

Thank you so much Toms Philippines for inviting me to this event! I loved my experience and I can't wait what you guys have in store for us and the people that you'll help next year. Be it Christmas or not, it is always nice to give. Happy holidays everyone!
