Iron Ovaries

Pinagbakahan, Malolos, Bulacan
Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 8 AM – 11 AM UTC+08
Price: Free · Duration: 3 hr

Mothers are the pillar of the family. They give selflessly and love unconditionally, but rarely find a support system that fully understands the new stress factors that they must deal with because of the pandemic. As much as we believe that children should receive proper education to encourage critical thinking, we also believe that we can help guide to the mothers in imparting this information on the children. We also wanted to provide a safe space for mothers to discuss whatever concerns they may have, stressful situations that they are not able to discuss with others, and allow them to simply relax in order to focus on their responsibilities a little better.

This is why we will be holding the first official Iron Ovaries. It will be the second HAPI-Bulacan event, and the first for 2021. We will be bringing in a manicurist who will provide each mother with a service. They will also receive a pouch with goodies just for them so they can pamper themselves at home. We will also have activities such as laughter yoga and a female empowerment seminar.

All mothers deserve their moment in the spotlight; this event for the mommies of Bulacan aims to provide them with a day full of pampering and empowerment.

HAPI KIDS, HAPI HEARTS – Love for Self and Humanity

HAPI Headquarters
Purok 7c Ilaya, Alabang, City of Muntinlupa
Valentine’s Day at 8 AM UTC+08
Price: Free

HAPI will be spending Valentine’s Day with the kids of HAPI Kids – Alabang with reminders to love themselves and how to share with humanity.

Headed by HAPI Jr. Ambassador Angie Driskell, CFO Mutya Valenzuela, and of course, HAPI Kids – Alabang Project Head Jamie del Rosario, the goal of HAPI Kids, HAPI Hearts is to serve breakfast, give tips on self-love to the kids, and hold an impromptu, on-the-spot Valentine-making contest.

HAPI will be giving the kids their own lunchboxes so they can reuse them each time they eat. The team will also bring the volunteers new cooking equipment for HAPI Kids events in the future.

“Sila mga Valentine namin.” – Angie Driskell
