For this years’ Thome Group annual Charity Holiday Drive, the Corporate and Communications team sold ecofriendly tote bags for the benefit of the children of SOS Village in Manila. Aside from the charitable cause, this drive also aims to produce a reusable bag that will help reduce the single-use of plastic bags in the Thome office.
The colorful eco-themed drawings on the tote canvas was designed by the children themselves when we paid a visit to the foundation and held an art competition.
The bags were later sold to Thome employees in Manila and Singapore as well as to business partners, friends, and family; just in time for the Holidays. An estimated sum of $2,000 SGD was raised which was later donated in full to the foundation.
We are very thankful to everyone who supported the cause.
