Scarlet surprises Right Start kids with Red Ribbon Rainbow Dedication Cakes

Scarlet Snow shared color and happiness with the kids and birthday celebrants of the Right Start Community in San Juan City as she celebrated her 4th birthday by surprising her fellow youngsters with a special bubble-designed party.

Right Start is a non-profit organization that provides Creative Caring Spaces, enabling underprivileged kids to engage in different afterschool activities like music, sports, reading, and arts.

Since 2017, the Belo-Kho family has been supporting the Right Start Community’s advocacy and has already held several celebrations. This time, the family decided to spend Scarlet’s birthday with the children.

“Ang theme ng party ni Scarlet ay The Gift of Gratitude. Galing sa Bibliya, higit na mapalad ang nagbibigay, it’s better to give than to receive. Ang ibig sabihin non, higit na masaya ang nagbibigay kaysa tumatanggap. Hindi kailangan na sobrang yaman para magbigay at hindi rin kailangan pera or gamit. Pwede tayo magbigay ng oras, ng talent, minsan ‘yung mga salita na nakaka-uplift or encourage. So tinuturo po namin kay Scarlet ‘yon kaya namin ginagawa ito” shared Hayden Kho.

It was a fun day for Scarlet and the kids as the party was jam-packed with activities, including a magic performance and a puppet show. A couple of children also experienced what it was like inside a bubble with the help of a giant bubble wand. Every corner of the room was filled with bubble-like balloons and there was even a ball pit where kids could just jump in and play.

While they enjoyed all of the activities, one of the most anticipated parts of the birthday celebration was the blowing of the birthday candles. For the big event, there were surprises upon surprises from Red Ribbon.

For the birthday girl, the well-loved bakeshop brought in her favorite Rainbow Dedication Cake. Scarlet also shared her blessings by surprising each of the Right Start celebrants with their own Rainbow Dedication Cake with Theme Toppers.

“Every time we have a celebration, there’s one birthday cake and everybody nagbo-blow ng candle. Kasi parang they look forward to it, it’s fascinating that there is a candle and there’s a cake. Parang it’s symbolic na, eto na nagse-celebrate na talaga ako. And they can make a wish pa. So, it’s one of the fun parts of the celebration that they get to blow their candle. Lalo na ngayon na each celebrant has a cake, thanks to Red Ribbon and Doc Hayden.” shared Rosalie Mallari, one of the founders of Right Start.

All of the guests and the Right Start kids enjoyed the chocolate fudge icing and filling and were wowed by the three-layer multi-colored cake of Rainbow Dedication Cake. The delicious birthday cake was also topped up with Red Ribbon Theme Toppers making the celebration extra fun.

Red Ribbon has always been part of the celebrations of Filipinos, making each gathering sweeter. Now on its 40th year, Red Ribbon in partnership with the Belo-Kho family, surprised Right Start kids that they will be giving away year round cakes for the birthdays of the kids, enabling more kids to have their best birthday with Red Ribbon Rainbow Dedication Cake.

As a celebration of its 40th year, this gesture by the Belo-Kho family is a clear testimonial that when you care a little bit more, you make is special, you make it Red Ribbon.

Red Ribbon, Apl.de.Ap Foundation turn over 2-storey building to a public school in Zamboanga City

macaroons-1

Red Ribbon—one of the leading bakeshop chains in the Philippines—together with Apl.De.Ap Foundation (ADAF) recently turned over a two-storey classroom building to Talon-Talon Elementary School in Zamboanga City to help bring the youth back to schools.

The ADAF is a non-government organization founded by Allan Pineda (aka Apl.de.Ap) of the Grammy Award-winning group Black Eyed Peas. Pineda attended the turnover ceremony along with a few representatives from Red Ribbon and Habitat for Humanity.

macaroons-2

A total of 14 classrooms were built inside the school’s premises; these classrooms are to be occupied by new elementary school pupils on top of its existing 64 students.

The first seven new classrooms are set for the use of SPED Gifted and Talented classes starting from kindergarten to grade six, with one advisory class per grade level. Twenty eight students that need SPED are expected to occupy each of these classrooms.

The eighth classroom will be used by the 41 students who fall under its SPED Non-Graded category, seated as one class and under the responsibility of three SPED teachers. The remaining six classrooms are intended for the use of third graders, each accommodating 53 students.

According to Zinnia Rivera, general manager of Red Ribbon, it was timely for Talon-Talon Elementary School to receive these new classrooms since the number of its students spiked from 6,169 in SY 2014-2015 to 6,412 this SY.

macaroons-3

“There was a need for a conducive place for learning in Talon-Talon Elementary School. Now, with the new classrooms in place, we will be able to provide better learning and teaching experiences to both students and teacher,” Rivera said. “On top of this, we will be more capable of addressing the need for an improved learning environment to children who need special education.”

She added, “Red Ribbon is one with other governing bodies in encouraging the youth to go back to school and mold their own future. By giving them more venues to acquire knowledge, we are also giving them more opportunities to discover their own strengths and learn from their experiences. Our partnership with different organizations made this possible. As we move forward, we will continue to engage in strategic partnerships that not only strengthen our vision but also help in nation-building.”

Habitat’s Chief Operating Officer for Disaster Response, Tots Escalada thanked Red Ribbon and ADAF for their efforts in helping the children of Zamboanga go back to school.

“Schools are children’s second homes. In Habitat, we want to help them have a more conducive place to learn, play and enjoy their childhood. We are very grateful to our partners for helping us give them that oppprtunity,” Escalada said.

macaroons-4

This is part of Red Ribbon’s Macaroons for a Cause initiative where the brand sold its best-selling macaroons nationwide for P50. For every pack of ‘Macaroons for a Cause,’ Filipino consumers were able to allocate 14 percent or P7 directly to the ADAF who will fund the project.

Aside from the combined efforts of Red Ribbon and ADAF, the program was also supported by Jollibee Group Foundation and Habitat for Humanity Philippines.
