Some of you guys might have heard of the successful suspended coffee movement abroad via FB (an act of charity that allows diners to pay for coffee and snacks in advance to be given to the less fortunate). In line with this success, Banana Peel has also started to offer suspended slippers. With every purchase of any flip flops from selected branches, customers can avail of as many suspended slippers as they want by just adding 50 pesos for each extra pair. These slippers will be distributed to the children of the Yellow Boat of Hope community to help them in their pursuit to a proper education.
Yellow Boat of Hope started out as a non-profit organization that provides children with little boats which they use to get across the water to get to school. The foundation has since then branched out into providing scholarships, school supplies, medical missions, and livelihood programs to all of its 11 partner communities. Now on their third year, they have recently partnered up with Banana Peel, Talk ‘n’ Text, and major media sponsor, Pep.ph to bring us the iBoat campaign—a project that is focused on helping children from various communities attain proper education.
You can also check out these limited edition Yellow Boat of Hope slippers available in selected Banana Peel branches(Market Market, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center, Sta. Lucia East, and Davao).
Talk ‘N Text, together with Banana Peel, has provided the easiest and most convenient way to accommodate donations for the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation Inc.
