As Tomato introduces their latest product line, the newest collection of Tomato Time watches called SWAP, they have also tied-up with Operation Blessing Philippines – a non-government organization that helps the underprivileged through its various programs. In this partnership, Tomato and Operation Blessing send a message that “you can be the change in a child’s life, one watch at a time”.
Operation Blessing is one of the three recipients of SWAP’s “Be the Change” advocacy campaign. This humanitarian organization puts the face behind the timely call, “Be the Change for Hunger.” For every “Be The Change” watch set you buy, with an orange SWAP silicone strap, you provide 15 meals to hungry and malnourished children. These fashionable timepieces are available for a reasonable price of Php 850.
“We are truly thankful for our partnership with Tomato in fighting hunger in our country. As we know, more and more Filipinos are suffering from hunger. But by buying the ‘Be The Change’ watch set, you can do something to help,” said Dr. Kim April Pascual, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Operation Blessing.
“We are also grateful that of all the NGOs in the Philippines, Tomato chose Operation Blessing to be their partner in this advocacy,” she added.
“We saw the passion and dedication of Operation Blessing in helping our underprivileged kababayans. This partnership with them is a great opportunity to give help to those who need it the most,” said Jon Dionisio, owner of Tomato franchise. •
