We can cover more territories and help more people if we work together. This Christmas, Robinsons Place Bacolod and Kultivar de Bacolod team up with the Covid Warriors of Negros to bring about Kultivar for a Cause. It’s a rare plant exhibit and sale that will benefit several families in Bacolod for Christmas. You get to enjoy seeing some rare plants while some families get to have a Noche Buena meal.
The Kultivar for a Cause
So many groups were born during the Covid-19 pandemic and most of them aim to help our fellowmen. It is in this difficult year that the spirit of bayanihan among Filipinos had a rebirth.
One of these groups was Covid Warriors of Negros and to this day, they continue to raise funds to help however they can. This Christmas, they are having their “Adopt a Family” Campaign, so they are raising funds for it through this event.
To earn from this event, spectators will have to pay a minimal entrance fee of P20. Meanwhile, exhibitors will be charged P500 for registration. Proceeds from these will all go to the Covid Warriors of Negros. As for the sales, 15% of what you will pay will be turned over to CWN as well.
Some of the most expensive plants will be on display, such as some monsterra and philodendron varieties, variegated anthuriums, and many more!
Adopt a Family
A minimum of 15 families in Bacolod City under “Adopt a Family” will benefit from the Kultivar for a Cause. These families will be selected by a DSSD representative as among the poorest of the poor in our community. If the event will be able to raise more funds, an additional of 15 families will blessed.
Robinsons Supermarket will be commissioned to prepare the Noche Buena Package for the families. These will be worth P1000 each and will be tentatively distributed on December 23.
There will also be a pick a prize surprise everyday.
Kultivar de Bacolod
Last time, I featured the online hub of plantitos and plantitas that was also started during the pandemic. Called Kultivar de Bacolod, this online group made gardening fun and easy for newbies. The offered tips for growing and propagating, reviving dying plants, and even where to get materials. They also provided a way to connect sellers to growers.
As people had a lot of time on their hands during the pandemic, they turned to gardening. Growing plants proved to be good diversion from the health and economic crisis, plus they beautify the surroundings and the home.
But now, they have gone out of their comfort zone to help some more by teaming up with the Covid Warriors of Negros.
Please visit the Kultivar for a Cause at the main atrium of Robinsons Place Bacolod, from December 18-20, 2020 to support this event.
Remember to wear your mask and face shield and observe physical distancing protocols.
