25 February 2013

President Benigno S. Aquino III together with the EDSA People Power Commission (EPPC) hosted the Tatak EDSA: Salo-Salubungang Pambata at the Kalayaan Grounds, Malacañang.

In his message, President Aquino called for the new generation to always make the right choice and not to repeat the same mistakes committed during the martial law.

“Ngayon ngang nagtagumpay na tayo at malaya sa diktador, inaasahan naming kayong kabataan, pati na ang susunod na henerasyon na gawin ang tama sa lahat ng oras… Ang hiling ko lang: magpakabait kayo at ingatan ninyo ang ipapamana naming malaya at marangal na pamumuhay,” he said.

Still a part of the 27th EDSA People Power Revolution anniversary, the event gathered 1,000 kids from different orphanages where they hanged pledge cards as a sign of their commitment to the country. The event was also attended by International Children’s Peace Prize awardee Kesz and different personalities in the local entertainment industry.

Gift packs which consist of toys, snacks and school materials were also distributed to the children from different participating sponsors.
