Swipe to better a child’s life

Swipe to better a child’s life (Featured in The Philippine Star, The Pepper Mill, December 3, 2010) It is always heartwarming to hear about people caring for underprivileged children. The sight of happy children is a balm to the soul. Recently, RCBC Bankard made sure it would make the indigent children of Barangay Kapitolyo in Pasig happy when it turned over P250,000 to Gawad Kalinga-Sibol. This touching act of generosity and compassion was made possible through the Diamond Cares advocacy program of the only Platinum card made for women, the RCBC Bankard Diamond MasterCard. Through Diamond Cares, every P100 charged to an RCBC Bankard Diamond MasterCard generates an automatic donation of 20 centavos in the cardholders’ name to Gawad Kalinga-Sibol, a community-based pre-school program for children aged three to six years. Leanore Lee, who represented all the RCBC Bankard Diamond MasterCard cardholders during the turnover ceremony, said, “We are blessed that the RCBC Bankard Diamond MasterCard has an advocacy program like Diamond Cares, which allows women to engage in guilt-free shopping knowing that for every peso charged to their card, a portion goes to the education of our youth. The card gives us cardholders the opportunity to be of service to other people without imposing any financial burden. It’s a win-win situation that leads to happiness and fulfillment for all.” RCBC Bankard works hand in hand with Gawad Kalinga in re-shaping the children’s external environment. It is hoped that the programs will bring about good, responsible and God-centered Filipinos of the future....
