According to the UN COH, Manila is the city with the highest homeless population, with 3.1 million homeless people living in the city. That fact is just one of the triggers behind #FeedtheCityPH | #TheDiscoverMNLAdvocacy.
#FeedtheCityPH is the annual advocacy event of DiscoverMNL, a food, travel and lifestyle blog focused on the Philippines.
This movement aims to create an impact by sharing what we have to these people and, hopefully, trigger a movement within our community to do the same.
#FeedtheCityPH officially had its pilot run last 2016. The DiscoverMNL team along with their pool of volunteers and partners, through this advocacy, have been able to successfully share care packages of basic goods, fresh food and clothing to the less privileged. Each year we further exceed our goal of reaching 100 families across the metro, sharing not just the gift kits, but a spark of hope and love within these busy times. The entire movement is then shared on our channel to share the moment, create a movement and inspire people to give back.
Watch the videos of our previous runs here: 2016– 2017.
This year, the team will continue the mission to feed the city not just with food, clothing and basic daily necessities, but with their passion to help connect people off all walks of life outside the digital landscape.
On December 2018, the DiscoverMNL team and volunteers will once again board the vans that will take us to the streets of Manila carrying pre-packed gifts for the people and families who’s stories are yet to be told.
Also, part of the proceeds of the Rainbow Collective 2019 LGBT planner sold through this collab link will be allotted for the advocacy.
