Works of Philippine's Most Celebrated Artists at the UNICEF's Auction for Action

Share
UNICEF is a well-known organization for supporting child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS. We see them act rapidly in helping those in need whenever we experience calamities. But what we do not know is that this organization relies entirely on voluntary contributions to support those mentioned activities.

If you're a follower of Ms. Daphne Osena's blog, I'm sure you know that she's been helping UNICEF in educating moms on breastfeeding. And now an event she's able to conceptualize called AUCTION FOR ACTION event. As a fan of art and design, she was able to gather artists and designers from all over the country and some abroad to contribute artworks for the auction. She said that she was amazed by the quick response of the artists when they know it's for charity which made her admire them more. Most of them are donating their best works.

Now, what is Auction for Action? It is UNICEF's Fundraising Online Auction to benefit children’s programs in the Philippines and worldwide. Auction will be done through EBAY
(www.ebay.ph/unicef) which will go live on 25 May 2011. This unique online auction in partnership with
Ayala Malls, Ebay.ph and Cibo brings together works of reputable artists in art, design, furniture,
fashion, jewellery and photography along with exciting experiential packages.

Featured artists are: Manny Baldemor, Michael Cacnio, Celestina, Seb Chua, Kenneth Cobonpue,
Araceli Limcaco Dans, Kristine Dee, Janina Dizon, Mich Dulce, Tom Epperson, Accessory Lab, Ito Kish,  E. Billy Mondoñedo, Ramon Orlina, Debbie Palao, Ling Quisumbing Ramilo, Benji Reyes, Popo San Pascual, Joey Samson, Vito Selma, Victor Sollorano, Paul Syjuco, Ricky Toledo and Chito Vijandre of FIRMA/Felicity, Reg Yuson, and UNICEF Special Advocate for Children, Ms. Daphne Oseña Paez.

Galerie Joaquin artists such Jovan Benito, Jomar Delluba, Hamzah Marbella, Dominic Rubio and
Juvenal Sanso are also participating.

Experiential packages include dinner by Chef Tonyboy Escalante of Antonio’s and dugout experience
with the Philippine Football Team or Azkals on July 3 at the World Cup qualifier in Manila.

This is very exciting especially for those who love art and designs. I am very honored to see some of the works of the most sought after Filipino artists. This is why Daphne calls this auction like a coming together of "rockstars" of the design world. This is not only a first for UNICEF but also a first in any auction locally.

Bianca Gonzalez, celebrity host, is also participating in this event. She's also a UNICEF Special Advocate for Children. Bianca said: “I’ve been
working with UNICEF since 2007 and I’m very excited to be a part of this unique fundraising auction.
Whilst online auctions are quite new to the Philippines, it’s very secure and the best thing is you can
participate from anywhere in the country.”




Here are some of the jewelries, paintings and furnitures included in the EBAY auction this MAY 25.
