“Plantitos” and “halamoms” can take their love of their leafy lockdown companions much further by supporting a fundraising campaign that supports children in poor households.
Save the Children, in partnership with Long Live Plants, has recently launched #PlantTheirFuture initiative which provides a basic learning kit to a child under Project ARAL (Access to Resources for Alternative Learning) for every purchase of a 6x6-inch Dragon Tail plant in a woven basket, priced at P995.
The kit aims to support the blended learning needs of underprivileged children in Caloocan, Navotas, and Malabon, as well as in Southern Mindanao.
According to Naida Pasion, chief business development officer of Save the Children Philippines, millions of children are still at risk of being left behind due to lack of access to learning materials, including devices and Internet connection.
“As we nurture plants at home, so too can we support children’s continuing learning at home and help ensure a better future for them,” said Pasion.
To order the Dragon Tail plant, send a message to Long Live Plants on Instagram (@longliveplants.ph) or to Save the Children Philippines via e-mail at [email protected] Shipping fee will be shouldered by the buyer.
