Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol launches official Shopee and Lazada stores so you can Be Safe Now

Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol brings safety right to your doorstep as they launch their new Shopee and Lazada flagship stores.
More than a year in quarantine has made Filipinos anxious to go out, meet up with family and friends, and once again do their favorite recreational activities and hobbies.

As the country continues to roll out its vaccination program, experts continue to remind us of the importance of following health protocols to keep yourself and the people around you safe.

From regular washing of hands, maintaining physical distancing to always disinfecting with at least 70% alcohol solution, proper sanitation remains key to helping us prevent the spread of the virus – and that includes choosing the right rubbing alcohol to keep your hands free from germs, viruses, and bacteria.

Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol is recommended by the Philippine Society for Microbiology (PSM) as it kills 99.9% of germs and starts to kill them on contact, so you can be protected while doing your regular activities even amid the pandemic. It also provides you and your loved ones up to 12 hours of protection with constant use. Defensil 70% Isopropyl Alcohol is now available in its online stores in 60 mL, 250 mL, 350mL, 500 mL, 1L, and 3.7 L or 1 GaL bottles.

Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol brand ambassadors, Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati, who are parents to two boys, Zion and Kai, shared how getting Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol online has been a big help to them.
“Right now, we do most of our shopping online for food, clothes, toys, and a lot more as we really think it’s safer and minimizes risks, not just for us but for our kids as well. That’s why we got excited when we heard that Defensil has launched an online store. It has been such a big help as it allows us to safely and conveniently purchase isopropyl alcohol anytime, especially since we use it a lot even when we’re just at home,” shared Sarah.
Sarah also loves how the alcohol is hypo-allergenic and has moisturizing properties to keep her and her family’s hands from getting dry.

Be Safe Now and visit Defensil’s Shopee and Lazada flagship stores for all your isopropyl alcohol needs. For more information on how to stay protected, you may visit the Defensil Isopropyl Alcohol’s Facebook page at facebook.com/defensil.philippines.

“Bakuna now na” PAPO kicks off Unity Statement to increase vaccination uptake.

The Philippine Alliance of Patient Organizations (PAPO), representing 38 patient groups in the country, today launches the “Bakuna, Now Na” campaign in a bid to increase vaccination uptake and decrease hesitancy to help curb the pandemic. The campaign is also in partnership with the Department of Health and is supported by the Department of Science and Technology and the Philippine Medical Association.

The Bakuna, Now Na campaign, an information and education advocacy to increase vaccine acceptance, also kicks off with a Unity Statement with partner groups urging Filipinos to get vaccinated against CoVID-19.

The patient-led campaign also aims to support efforts towards vaccine equity through various initiatives and collaborations with governments, manufacturers and the COVAX facility among other platforms.

“The pandemic has made Filipino patients more vulnerable to sickness and hardships. We urge all Filipinos, including patients and their families, to get vaccinated against CoVID-19 to protect ourselves and others from this potentially life-threatening illness. We also support initiatives to urgently address vaccine inequity and secure vaccine access for Filipinos, including those belonging to priority sectors like patients,” said PAPO President Ms Ma. Fatima Lorenzo.

“The Bakuna, Now Na is a campaign for Filipino patients and by Filipino patients. We aspire that through this campaign, we would help in informing the patients and the public that vaccines are safe and effective having gone through regulatory approvals and scientific research. We are stronger and healthier together, which is why we are calling on everyone to get vaccinated,” said Ms Karen Alparce-Villanueva, PAPO Treasurer and Campaign Project Lead.

A recent Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey found that only three out of 10 Filipinos are willing to be vaccinated even if they were free and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Efforts are also underway to identify barriers for the non-vaccination of a number of senior citizens and persons with comorbidities, belonging to the A2 and A3 priority sectors.

Seeing the vast number of Filipinos who are hesitant to get vaccinated, PAPO recognizes the necessity to address the people’s concerns through the Bakuna, Now Na advocacy. The campaign will center on frequently asked questions about CoVID-19 vaccines and dispel myths with verified medical facts. The Bakuna, Now Na is an effort to translate complicated medical terms into easy-to-digest content that will help educate the public.

“The Department of Health is pleased to partner with the Philippine Alliance of Patient Organizations in our effort to increase vaccine confidence and vaccinate more people as soon as possible. We continue to call on patients and our senior citizens to get themselves vaccinated because vaccines are one of the proven ways by which we could prevent this pandemic. Vaccines along with the wearing of face masks, hand washing, and physical distancing will help us move forward safely from this pandemic. Vaccines are safe and effective kaya Bakuna, Now Na,” said Department of Health – Health Promotions Bureau Director Dr. Beverly Lorraine Ho.

Dr. Nina Gloriani, chairman of the Department of Science and Technology – Vaccine Expert Panel, is also present during the campaign launch as the advocacy will feature verified information coming from the country’s medical and vaccines experts.

The Bakuna, Now Na campaign is being led by PAPO in partnership with the Department of Health, the Department of Science and Technology, the Philippine Medical Association, the Philippine Pharmacists Association and former Health Secretaries Carmencita Reodica, MD, Esperanza Cabral, MD, Manuel Dayrit, MD, and Janette Garin, MD and 50 other organizations and growing.

According to Rey Sarmenta, the former Chairman of HAPLOS, the Hemophilia Foundation, he got vaccinated because he wanted to protect his family, and getting vaccinated is his chance to enjoy his life with his loved ones.

For Ara Lanorio, President of the Neurofibromatosis Friends Philippines, proper education about vaccines should take priority. She shared her initial concerns about the vaccine and how knowing the facts helped her decide to get vaccinated.

Batangas kindergarten students received learning materials through World Vision’s Abutin Na10

The Department of Education (DepED Undersecretary for External Partnerships Service Atty. Tonisito M.C. Umali, ESQ recently turned over 18,000 sets of printed learning materials for students in Batangas through through the “Abutin Na10” campaign in partnership with child-focused NGO World Vision.
This ongoing campaign for the benefit of learners residing in poor and remote communities is World Vision’s initiative to respond to the government’s call to support its Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan (BELCP).
“I want you to know by heart that no less than our constitution mandates that quality education be made accessible to all learners,” explained Usec. Umali while referring to the provision in the 1987 Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines Article XIV Section 1 which states that “The State shall protect and promote the right of all citizens to quality education at all levels, and shall take appropriate steps to make such education accessible to all.”
Under the BELCP, schools are mandated to adopt various distance learning modalities appropriate for the learners. Whether through online learning, activity sheets or a combination of both approaches, children are able to enjoy their right to education at the safety and comforts of their homes.
World Vision national director Rommel V. Fuerte shared during the turnover event, “Today is a milestone that we want to celebrate for the most vulnerable children especially for thousands of Kindergarten students here in Batangas who will receive learning activity sheets printed by ‘Abutin Na10’.” Fuerte also commended DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones for consistenly promoting continued learning among students despite the health and safety challenges brought by the lingering COVID-19 crisis.
‘Abutin Na10’ lead and World Vision’s education technical program manager Geomel P. Jetonzo hoped that more and more organizations and individuals support Filipino learners through this campaign.
“Together let us give children opportunities for learning and development by skillfully and prayerfully adapting to this ever-changing education landscape.”

PascualLab supports World Vision in empowering the most vulnerable children through Chosen™

MOA Signatories photo caption: From left to right, top to bottom: PascualLab Chairman of the Board, President and CEO Jose Augusto “Jappy” Pascual and VP for Corporate HROD and DSCC Mia Pascual Cenzon and World Vision National Director Rommel V. Fuerte and Resource Development Director Santos N. Godornes, Jr. during the MOA signing event held via Zoom.

Pascual Laboratories, Inc. (PascualLab), a top-of-mind partner for health products and manufacturing services known for its unwavering passion for health and life, has partnered with World Vision in bringing hope to the most vulnerable by empowering them to choose through the non-profit organization’s new child sponsorship campaign, Chosen™.

Last January 2020, World Vision officially introduced in the Philippines a new approach towards child sponsorship that has changed the lives of both donors and sponsored children since then.

Through Chosen™, children living in World Vision’s assisted communities are given the opportunity to impact their better future by empowering them to choose. This time, potential donors are invited to sign up and be chosen by a child to become his or her sponsor. Amazingly, this has turned into a memorable experience that is shared between the donor and the child.

In celebration of PascualLab’s 75th anniversary, the Pascual family decided to give back by doing something meaningful for their hometown, Malabon. Through this partnership, their employees will get to experience being chosen by children from World Vision’s assisted community in Malabon.

“When the World Vision team initially proposed the idea of their charity program CHOSEN, we thought it was something that could give a ray of light to those in need especially during these bleak times. For PascualLab, and fittingly so during our 75th anniversary, it would enable our Family Members to reach out to underprivileged Filipino children given the situation we were and still are in, and the challenges that we continue to face” PascualLab President and CEO Mr. Jose Augusto “Jappy” Pascual said.

PascualLab and World Vision did a ceremonial MOA signing via Zoom. Those present were signatories World Vision National Director Mr. Rommel V. Fuerte, PascualLab President and CEO Mr. Jose Augusto G. Pascual, World Vision Resource Development Director Mr. Santos N. Godornes, Jr., and PascualLab Director for Corporate HROD, Design Services and Corporate Communications Ms. Anna Maria Lourdes “Mia” P. Cenzon. This generosity and kindness from PascualLab and their 140 employees will be giving over 75 kids from Malabon the chance to improve their lives through Chosen™.

“Corporate social responsibility has always been part of the PascualLab Family culture. My grandparents, founders Isosceles and Leonora Pascual, always believed in the value of helping others, of caring for others, and of education. Through the years, we have been honoring and continuing their legacy through our CSR initiatives such as this collaboration with World Vision”, added Pascual.

“Thank you very much, PascualLab, especially to your volunteer employees, who are now sponsors to the most vulnerable children. With your support, children and their families can have access to healthcare, quality education as well as programs on livelihood, safety and spiritual development. Partners like you make this ministry more meaningful and sustainable”, World Vision National Director Rommel V. Fuerte shared.

United as a coalition of brand architects, inspired storytellers and communication trailblazers, ComCo SEA is kicking off its anniversary celebration with the Agency’s brand evolution – the transformation of its symbol and promise, and the retelling of its brand identity and story. ComCo Southeast Asia unveils its icon – a mothership housing the company’s great works and individuals with immense talent, meaning, passion and dreams, and taking off to conquer new horizons. The mothership is a vessel, a second home, a safe zone, a creativity playground, and a jumping board that empowers the ComCo Squadron to do more groundbreaking projects and make a difference along the way.

ComCo’s logo transforms from speech bubble into a digital screen, which beams the image of the mothership, and reflects the more modern, more complete and more integrated way of communicating in a world that has evolved. It shows the advancement, digital and multi-touchpoint integration, and completeness of the emerging global disciplines the Agency champions – New PR and Smart Social. It represents the company’s outlook of being a global independent communications agency working with a network of independents in Southeast Asia and across the regional centers of the world, in providing integrated communications solutions and services to brands, companies and organizations of all shapes and sizes.

Whether online or on-site, ComCo SEA is ready to soar higher with its unique brand of #MeaningfulStorytelling, which is also the Agency’s new mantra, to ignite brand love, social change, talent growth and regional alliance.

The company’s focus remains to Ignite Brand Love, Ignite Social Change, Ignite Talent and Ignite Regional Collaboration, while ComCo’s corporate culture is now reinforced through the four Camp ComCo mentorship houses lifted from the team’s spirit animals which are valuable but endangered species inhabiting Southeast Asia and the Pacific, showing the Agency’s love for the environment. ComCo Southeast Asia upholds Unity Drawn by Individual Stories and Team Journey as represented by Hawksbill, Rebellion Against the Status Quo and Monotony to Pursue Excellence as symbolized by Bearcat, Commitment to Advocacies that Matter and taken to Heart as signified by Flying Fox, and Equal Access and Opportunity for All as reflected by Whaleshark.

Wins in Awards and Accounts
In its 5 years, ComCo Southeast Asia has reaped over 76 awards and is celebrating more wins in 2021 from both local and international award-giving bodies such as IABC Quill Awards, MarCom Awards in USA, Mumbrella Awards, Marketing Event Awards in Singapore, Campaign Asia Pacific’s PR Awards Asia in Hong Kong, Spikes Asia, Anvil Awards, Asia Pacific Stevie Awards, Kidlat and ARAW Advertising Values Awards. The company recently received 13 metals from the prestigious IABC Quill Awards along with brand partners Eastern Communications, Jobstreet, World Vision and WWF-Philippines, including the recognition of Agency of the Year 2nd Runner-up. Recently, ComCo Southeast Asia also emerged as regional finalist in the Marketing PR Awards in Singapore for Best Use of Micro / Niche Influencers for its Write to Ignite Blogging Project.

More than the awards, ComCo SEA also continued to strengthen its client portfolio, winning major accounts in recent agency pitches such as Xiaomi, Unilab Foundation, Defensil isopropyl alcohol, Sunlife ASC, and Lamoiyan Corporation’s Gumtect toothpaste.

Blazing Sapphire 5-Part Celebration
To mark its 5th year in the business, ComCo SEA is inviting its friends and stakeholders to join its year-long 5-part celebration dubbed as “Blazing Sapphire”. First in the 5-part series is the kick-off which included the virtual townhall and digital unveiling of ComCo SEA’s brand evolution, while the summer would mark the inauguration of the Camp ComCo Alumni Society “Unity Games”, where the graduates of the company’s mentorship program from House Bearcat, Flying Fox, Hawksbill and Whaleshark will get reunited, which also serves as the celebration of the company’s strong alumni culture. Meanwhile, bloggers, micro-influencers and content creators can sharpen their storytelling skills anew as ComCo SEA opens season 2 of the award-winning and much talked about “Write to Ignite Blogging Project”.

In “5 Gifts to the Community” of Citizen ComCo, the Agency’s advocacy program, ComCo SEA aims to give back and pay forward to different sectors – children, youth and education; heritage, culture and tourism; wildlife, biodiversity and environmental conservation; micro, small and social enterprises; and Southeast Asian integration. Afterwards, stakeholders and partners can look forward to the culmination of the celebration through the “Blazing Sapphire” anniversary main event.

ComCo Southeast Asia’s Regional Integration and Chief Executive Director and Co-Founder Ferdinand Bondoy shared, “We did not expect to grow this fast as we are just enjoying the journey of working together again (founders are former teammates who did landmark projects together) and growing the team with a unique, non-conformist and progressive agency culture that we’ve always dreamed of.

Then we just realized that there are so many milestones to celebrate and to be thankful for already. In 5 years, we’ve already taken care of 61 brands or accounts; 76 local, regional and international awards from real, authentic and impactful campaigns in collaboration with existing and actual clients; mentored 65 apprentices from 14 cycles of the Camp ComCo Mentorship Program; and established a network of independents in Southeast Asia primarily in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.”

Mr. Bondoy added, “While the team, or ComCo Squadron as we fondly call it, has accomplished many things in a short period of time, we believe that there is a lot more to do. And as we kick-start our 5-part 5th anniversary celebration, we are also jumpstarting our 10-year masterplan which is set to even revolutionize the game and do more for our society, as we work on projects and initiatives with people, brands and organizations that share the same vision.”
