Tattoo’s fundraising concert for #YolandaPh
Rock icon Bamboo and Tattoo Home Broadband will restage their successful concert for children of the Visayas’ hard-hit areas following Typhoon Yolanda on December 20 at the Music Museum. Titled Believe Christmas @ Home with Bamboo, the benefit concert aims to raise more than a thousand toys to bring smiles to those who love the season most.
With children being the most vulnerable in these trying times, Bamboo together with Tattoo dedicate this musical event to them. Instead of an original private concert and Christmas celebration brought by Tattoo to its customers, the concert will now serve as a vehicle to rally both customers and the brand ambassador’s supporters to participate and donate toys. With the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda leaving countless families homeless and suffering from loss of loved ones, children serve as a symbol of hope that we can rise again and rebuild our nation.
Sing to the tunes of traditional Christmas favorites together with original compositions from Bamboo’s album No Water No Moon and iconic rock hits. Offering his unique vocal talents to a good cause, Bamboo will be joined by the show’s musical director Kakoy Legaspi on guitars, Ria Osorio on keyboards/piano, Jun Jun Regalado on drums, Simon Tan on bass and Ardie de Guzman on guitars.
To be able to watch Bamboo on December 20, 2013 for free, Tattoo will be accepting toy donations from until December 20. Tattoo subscribers may also go to any TicketWorld branch or log on to www.ticketworld.com.ph to purchase one pair of children’s toys, equivalent one free concert ticket. After selecting the pair of toys, subscribers may choose a seat section corresponding to the items. The prices for available pairs of toys range from P400 for Balcony seats, P600 for Orchestra side, to P700 for Orchestra center.
For those who simply want to share a simple Christmas message and inspire Yolanda survivors to believe that they can rise from this tragedy, Tattoo encourages its followers to post their greetings through a video on Instagram. Simply follow @ChooseTattoo on Twitter and Instagram and sing any Christmas song and upload a video on Instagram account with the hashtag #UnwrapHope. This video post will be equivalent to a toy that Tattoo will donate on the follower’s behalf. And as a special treat, a creative selection of these videos will be compiled and revealed during Bamboo’s concert.
All the toys that will be collected will be for the benefit of the children of Tattoo’s adopted Gawad Kalinga Village and surrounding communities in Brgy. Tambulilid, Ormoc, Leyte.
The Tattoo Village is part of Globe Telecom’s Bangon Pinoy program, an enterprise-wide disaster response initiative that aims to have a unified system for donations, relief efforts, and corporate social responsibility programs across products and services.
