PLEDGE HANDS TO SAVE LIVES
I deliberately didn't mention the most important thing I did before proceeding with the main activity in my previous entry because I think it deserves a separate post.
Keeping the "two happy birthday song rule" in mind, I washed my hands. It's that important. Very.
So what's the proper way to wash our hands? Check the guide below especially #3.
Unilever, the world's leading Personal Care company, once again mounts this year's celebration of Global Handwashing Day with a reinforced campaign to improve the health of more Filipinos. Unilever aims to do this by reaching out to as many as 3 million Pinoy children, teaching them how to properly wash their hands with soap.
"Children are the primary target of this campaign because of their exposure to harmful bacteria that pose serious threats to their health. So many suffer from preventable diseases, this is why we believe that we should teach more and more of them to wash their hands regularly and properly," said Chito Macapagal, Unilever Vice President for Corporate Affairs.
This year's campaign will kick off with a commitment event on October 18, 2013 at the Aurora Quezon Elementary School in San Andres Manila. Attending will be representatives from Unilever's global partner UNICEF, and its local partner agencies from the public and private sectors: the Department of Education, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Depart of Health, Philippine Public Health Association, Fit for Life, the Knowledge Channel and the Manila City Government. With these partners, Unilever will be able to mount the most resolute Global Handwashing Day celebration in Southeast Asia.
So what are you waiting for? Pledge your hands now and help save lives.
