The joy and appreciation of family togetherness is at the heart of Jollibee’s new Christmas campaign

 
Directed by Pepe Diokno, Jollibee's new video gives a reminder that being with your family brings an unparalleled sense of joy even in these challenging and difficult times.

The joy and appreciation of family togetherness is at the heart of Jollibee’s new Christmas campaign

 

The country’s beloved fast-food chain recently launched a new campaign in time for the Christmas season that reminds everyone that amid these trying times, being with family is one of the things that we ought to be most grateful for.

The new short film, done in collaboration with its creative agency McCann Worldgroup Philippines and directed by Pepe Diokno, tells a heart-warming story of gratitude, joy and love for family as seen through the eyes of a child.  Using a real-life family as talents and with an accompanying original song composition, Jollibee aims to convey that despite all that we are going through, our family will remain as our greatest source of joy.  
 
The film captures what a typical Pinoy household looks like in today’s new normal. Familiar scenes of parents working from home, students busy with online classes, and grandparents restricted to the confines of home.
 
But as the video progresses it also reveals to us another undeniable truth; that this pandemic also comes with a silver lining. This is the renewed appreciation and rediscovered joy for what is most important --the priceless quality time that we can now enjoy with our family. And as the approaching Christmas season will probably be celebrated in a more intimate and simpler way, the fact that it can be shared together with a whole, healthy, and happy family is something that people are and should continue to be most grateful for.
 
“It may be difficult to find joy in every day amid these trying times, and especially as we’re accustomed to festive gatherings during the Christmas season. But this period also reminded us to view what’s happening from the eyes of a child and treasure what we have in our lives right now   — it’s family, the love and joy we share, and the heart-warming support we provide one another,” said Jollibee Foods Corporation Philippines Country/Regional Marketing head and concurrent PH Marketing Head, Francis Flores.
 
Celebrate the warmth of family with Jollibee’s new video that you can watch on Jollibee Studios and the Jollibee Philippines official Facebook page.

Even with all the uncertainties that we all are facing, Heart believes that there are many reasons why we must honor and celebrate our loved ones especially on their most special moments. Celebrating in a special way the important milestones in our and our loved ones’ lives - birthdays, anniversaries, or holiday get-togethers — is one way to show our love.

Give your family the added protection with Rani-C

RANI - C Defense Kit Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C

Give your family the added protection with Rani-C
Limited edition Rani-C defense kit available now

Since January this year, the Department of Health (DOH) continuously appealed to the public to frequently wash hands, observe proper hygiene, hydrate, eat nutritious food, and wear protective gears like face masks and face shields as preventive part of measures against COVID-19. 

With La Niña well on its way, creating erratic and extreme weather patterns, many Filipinos are now even more susceptible to various infections that may weaken one’s immune system. And as the threat of the coronavirus continues to loom, any form of additional protection has never been as crucial.

This is usually in the form of vitamin supplements, especially Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that can decrease inflammation, boost one’s immune system, and promote wound healing. While Vitamin C can easily be found in many fruits including oranges, melons and vegetables like bell peppers and broccoli, some people might not be getting the recommended dosage of the vitamin. 

In comes Sodium Ascorbate Rani-C, a non-acidic Vitamin C supplement specifically manufactured to provide Filipinos the added daily dosage they need at an affordable price and without the discomfort many get when they take the acidic counterparts available in the market.  

At only ₱4.00 per capsule, Rani-C is one of the most affordable supplements available in the market. This ensures that Filipinos can safeguard their and their family’s immune health without hurting their wallets, especially during the pandemic. 

To further assist Filipinos’ from the threats of the virus and other infections, Rani-C is offering a limited edition Rani-C Defense kit. 

Available until supplies last, you may now get the Rani-C Defense Kit, which includes one Rani-C box with 100 capsules and a free 500ml Sure-Guard 75% Ethyl Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Gel for only ₱400.00. 

Head out to any Watsons and Mercury Drug nationwide, or check out Watsons Online, and give your family the added protection they need with Rani-C.

A Gift of Health
Pula, PRC’s adorable bear and 2 units of 340g Lysol Disinfectant Spray are included in the special Christmas bundle 

 
Support Lysol’s Disinfect to Protect mission
 Lysol encourages consumers to purchase Christmas bundle packs
 
Following the forging of a strategic partnership with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) early this year, which is aimed at bolstering its Disinfect to Protect mission, Lysol reaffirms its commitment to PRC as it continues to protect vulnerable communities by breaking down the chain of infections and ensuring everybody is protected from COVID-19 and other illnesses.
 
Towards this end, Lysol is encouraging consumers and the public to support PRC. Firstly, by donating to the COVID-19 Samaritan’s Fund, which makes available COVID-19 testing to the most susceptible and vulnerable groups. Secondly, by adopting Pula, PRC’s adorable bear, which can be owned in a special Christmas bundle pack consisting of 2 units of 340g Lysol Disinfectant Spray.
 
For every purchase of this special holiday-themed pack available in supermarkets nationwide, Lysol hopes to create further awareness on the efforts undertaken by PRC. Moreover, the special holiday-themed pack makes for an excellent gift for friends and family, reminding them to always practice good hygiene to Disinfect to Protect.
 
These worthwhile initiatives come at the heels of Lysol’s Php 36 million donation to  PRC for the construction of a molecular laboratory in Cagayan de Oro City and towards the strengthening of COVID-19 mass testing among vulnerable groups in the country. The said facility, located at the Capitol Compound in CDO, completed its construction and passed the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine’s (RITM) proficiency test in September.
 
Equipped with 2 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) machines that can process 2000 tests per day, the facility is in operation since September 19th, 2020 after receiving its accreditation as a certified COVID-19 testing center. With this latest development, more people in the region can now get the COVID-19 test they need so that they can feel better assured about their safety when returning to work.
 
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Lysol cannot stress enough about the importance of disinfecting the home and the workplace, frequently-touched surfaces, by using their superior line of products: from disinfectant sprays to multi-action cleaners—tested that has been proven effective against the COVID-19 virus. Furthermore, Lysol also stresses on the importance of proper handwashing, another effective line of defense against viruses.
 
Truly, we can all do our share in contributing towards the meaningful Disinfect to Protect mission. For more information, check-out the official Philippine Red Cross Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/phredcross.

Part of that campaign is ensuring availability to as many Filipinos as possible by making Daikin’s energy efficient split type air conditioners available in over 180 major appliance retailers nationwide.

“More than a sales campaign, Time to Split is the main driver of our long-term strategy in the Philippines,” said Takayoshi Miki, President of Daikin Philippines. “As more and more Filipino consumers experience high electricity costs, Daikin hopes to shift the traditional Window-Type Aircon Culture to an Inverter Energy-savings split-type mentality.”

With many Filipinos staying at home to help contain the spread of COVID-19, electricity consumption per household has notably increased, leading to higher than normal electricity bills due to increased use of air conditioning. This has led to Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi recently calling for the ‘conscious consumption’ of energy.

In line with the Department of Energy’s call for conscious consumption of energy, Daikin seeks to shift the Filipino mindset towards energy efficient split-types over traditional window-type air conditioners. Inverter air conditioners are well known for their precise control and outstanding energy efficiency, particularly compared to non-inverter models. According to Daikin, this is due to the inverter’s ability to vary capacity by adjusting operating frequency.

“At Daikin, we fully support the government’s call for the efficient use of energy,” said Miki. “Through our Time to Split campaign, we hope to advocate for the use of highly efficient split-type inverter aircons, not just to lower usage cost of our customers, but to also protect our environment from the harmful effects of using non-inverter window type aircons.”

The Time to Split campaign is being led by Daikin’s D-Smart line, the company’s latest batch of inverter split-types with lower SRPs compared to its counterparts in the market. According to Miki, the proprietary DC inverters in its new split-types can reduce electricity consumption, resulting up to 60 percent real energy savings.
