Rock Ed launched its ROCKBAKUNA fund with a gathering of musicians. Armed with their musical genius and generosity, the following bands stood witness to this ambitious project. Chicosci, Imago, Pedicab, Cambio, Ciudad, Bagetsafonik, Chilitees, Tribu ni Dulu, and Cherry Cornflakes. The musicians of Rock Ed know what its like to perform for a cause bigger than themselves. Mabuhay kayo. Kayo ang aming mga bayani.
The RockBakuna fund is a collection of donations from private citizens to vaccinate public school children from Hepatitis-B. Your participation is most welcome. Set up your own event and donate proceeds to the RockBakuna fund. Skip one cup of expensive coffee this week and donate it to any good cause, for that matter, it doesn’t have to be Rock Ed. Donate or volunteer for Gawad Kalinga. GreenPeace. Save the Children. Aklatang Pambata. Maski ano! Donate a book to Rock Ed's BookBigayan for public school librarie. Hold your own Barkada-Ukay-Ukay garage sale and donate proceeds to any NGO that supports your advocacy of choice. Kung wala kayong mapili, ipadala niyo na sa RockBakuna.
Not next month. Not next year. Plan it now. I wish us all a healthy impatience and an urgent patience in this adventure called nation-building.
