On 10 March, HOM together with Crate&Barrel did a wonderful thing by combining people’s love for shopping and their love for supporting their favorite advocacies. Dubbed “Shopping for a Cause”, the event drew several HOM friends and supporters to the Crate&Barrel store in SM Aura. People who shopped from 2:00PM onwards were able to save 20% off regular priced items. HOM was a beneficiary of part of the sales proceeds. Drinks and canapés were also free flowing during the sale courtesy of Crate&Barrel. These all made for a fun and fabulous spree for all shoppers. Gianna Montinola, HOM President, thanked Crate&Barrel for giving HOM a wonderful opportunity to fund raise and increase awareness for its operations and programs. She explained how HOM was committed to promoting volunteerism and that it had recently re-launched its Monthly Calendar to enable even the busiest individuals to identify volunteer service activities that suited their tastes and schedules. She urged people interested in being of service to visit the HOM website to experience firsthand how volunteering enriches not just the lives of people they help but also their own.
