Help out a Pinoy This Christmas: Buy Local, Support Local
Choose Philippines | Dec 08, 2015
Giving gifts, no matter how small or simple, has been a Christmas tradition especially for Filipinos. We spend our Christmas bonus or 13th month pay on toys and clothes for our many inaanaks and pamangkins. We scour the malls and tiangges for best buys until midnight. We haggle as much as we can just to get the best price. Unfortunately, because of this practice, most of our hard-earned money goes to multinational companies and, sometimes, even foreign business owners.
This Christmas, why not make things different and spread the true meaning of Christmas? Make a local seller smile by buying from his online shop or his small store at the street corner. This way, more local people and sustainable communities will have a better Christmas.
