We've all seen the power of social networks especially here in the Philippines (we're not the world's social networking capital for nothing you know) and this time around, Bench harnesses its strength for a good cause with its historic 1M for 1M campaign.

With the help of its endorsers, Bench has drummed up a list of 15 foundations for the ultimate goal of endowing not one (1) but ten (10) charitable institutions / foundations Php100,000 each! Taking part on helping is very easy but before I show you how, here are Bench's endorsers and the corresponding foundations they are supporting...
Sam Concepcion for World Vision
Kris Lawrence for World Vision
Anthony Semerad for World Vision
David Semerad for World Vision
Diether Ocampo for K.I.D.S. Foundation
Dingdong Dantes for the YesPinoy Foundation
Isabelle Daza for Ephesus, Home of the Abused Girls
Iya Villania for the School for the Deaf
Jake Cuenca for C.R.I.B.S.
Janine Gutierrez for White Cross
Jason Francisco for Mother of Mercy Home for the Elderly
Jessy Mendiola for Missionaries of Charity 
John Prats for National Children's Hospital
Jon Avila for the Philippine Orthopedic Center Auxiliary Board, Inc.
Karylle for Child Haus
Kris Aquino for AGAPP
Lovi Poe for Childhope Asia
Lucy Torres - Gomez for K.I.D.S.
Paolo Avelino for the Philippine Red Cross
Rocco Nacino for Cancer Warriors Foundation
To help support this cause, you only need to follow three (3) simple steps:

  1. Visit and then log in via Twitter. If a user has no Twitter account, there will be a Twitter Sign Up button for him or her to sign up.
  2. Follow @benchtm by clicking on a button on the left side of the page. If the logged user is already following @benchtm, he/she will see a grayed out button.
  3. Finally, vote by clicking on options on a poll on the left hand side of the screen. Once you vote, there will be a button with which to send a TWEET saying "I follow @benchtm and voted for Celebrity Name for Charity Name via #Bench1M41M."
I have a soft spot for neglected and abandoned babies that's why I voted and chose the C.R.I.B.S. Foundation which Jake Cuenca is supporting. They are still far from the 100,000 mark but with your help, we can make a difference in the lives of these kids.
