UNICEF Philippines, an organization supporting childrensâ€™ causes, will be holding its first fund-raising, online auction event entitled â€˜Auction for Actionâ€™ to benefit children worldwide.
The three-week fund raising event will go live on May 25 on www.ebay.ph/unicef
, and will be hosted by Bianca Gonzales, Iza Abeja and Daphne OseÃ±a Paez.
Formerly called United Nations Childrenâ€™s Emergency Fund, UNICEF has been supporting child health and nutrition, clean water and sanitation, quality basic education for boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS in the Philippines, and all over the world.
In the Philippines, UNICEF has been working closely with the government to ensure that supplies and services can be delivered quickly and efficiently to communities affected by typhoons, floods and other calamities, said UNICEF communications section Chief Angela Travis.
For the auction, UNICEF has partnered with Ayala Malls, Ebay.ph and Cibo and acclaimed artists in various areas of design; from paintings and functional art, to sculpture, furniture, fashion, and fine jewellery.
Bidders from around the world will use E-bay to browse through the items to be auctioned, and make their bids. Linkback: https://tubagbohol.mikeligalig.com/index.php?topic=40823.0
