In its 9th year, World Bazaar Festival will give the gift of Pasig River rehabilitation to Filipinos via an initiative called Kapit Bisig sa Ilog Pasig. The project which aims to rehabilitate the moribund 17-kilometer river system, top-bills a partnership between Worldbex Services International and ABS-CBN Network.
Part of the proceeds and net of costs of this year’s World Bazaar Festival will go Kapit Bisig sa Ilog Pasig. So from December 4-16 at the World Trade Center Manila, participants in the largest Christmas bazaar in the country will not only get the best holiday finds with the over 600,000 booths, they’ll also get the chance to help clean the Pasig River.
This was my first time to go to Christmas Bazaar as well as with my mom, we enjoyed going around and shopping for some unique finds that suits our tastes. There were also big discounts compared to buying at the malls. I was even more delighted when I knew that not only we had fun shopping but also we had the chance to help clean up the Pasig River. This was definitely a shopping experience for a cause. So what are you waiting for? Go to the World Bazaar and shop until you drop ?
Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig is the most comprehensive and ambitious effort to clean Pasig River to date. It has charted a seven-year campaign to tackle pollution, help relocate informal settlers, provide livelihood opportunities and launch a major information campaign.
