Hallmark x 7-Eleven’s holiday collaboration

The air is chilly, the mood is merry, and the lights are out and sparkling. What a joy it is to have the holidays upon us once again. This is the time to give back and share the love and blessings we have received this year, as it is what the true spirit of Christmas is.

 This Christmas, Hallmark is inviting you to celebrate the season with the gift of love and care. In hopes to bring holiday cheer to street children, Hallmark is partnering with PhilSeven Foundation, convenience store 7-Eleven’s charity arm, through ‘Gulong ng Karunungan’ (GNK) project. This is a mobile school project that aims to provide education to the less fortunate street children of select local cities in the Philippines. Over the past years, GNK has helped augment the learning, supplemental feeding, and basic medical needs of over 2,000 disadvantaged youth, comprised mostly of out-of-school children and informal settlers from identified city beneficiaries.

Moreover, you as a customer can be a part of this jolly project. With every purchase of Hallmark Christmas products such as their Gift Wrappers, Gift Bags, Gift Tags and other Christmas products from 7-Eleven, a portion of the sales will be donated directly to support GNK project.

Make this season shine by celebrating it, too, with people outside your home. And when you care enough to give back, we believe that the smiles and joy of children in need are more than enough to warm your heart and make your Christmas, the merriest ever.


Be involved and get your Hallmark products by visiting your neighboring 7-Eleven store.

Hallmark Christmas products are also available in all leading bookstores and select online shops.

Qatar-based IBD stages forum for investors and entrepreneurs in Manila

The “i3 Forum”—held at the Okada Manila recently—is one of a series of business forums taking place in various cities around the world, building up to the IBD Summit slated for April 6-9, 2020 in Doha, Qatar. Manila is one of 30 cities in which the “i3 Forum” series is being conducted.

Yousif Al-Jaber, International Business Delegation (IBD) Chairman, explained “i3” stands for “Innovators, Investors and Influencers”, as the forum aims to provide a platform for entrepreneurs, investors and corporates to find investors, partners as well as access international markets for business expansion or exports.

“Our international investor network and the trust they place in us are our biggest assets,“ said Al-Jaber.

“Every city has certain key sectors in which they are globally competitive. The i3 Forum and IBD Summit gives them infrastructure to take these products and services to the larger global market,” commented Vineet C. Nambiar, who presented at the forum. He emphasized about a dedicated session exploring opportunities in the ASEAN region at the upcoming IBD Summit.

Leonardo Tabilog Jr., IBD Marketing and Communications Director added: “The I3 forum aspires to be a major annual anticipated event in the Manila business calendar; we’re getting bigger, bolder and better with each year and have already started preparations for next year's i3 Forum, as we appoint IBD ambassadors from the Philippines to help promote our initiative. “

“We are expecting five billion dollars worth of deals at the summit this year and have over 120 proposals from around the world already,” added IBD Projects and Finance Director Shamseer Hamza.

The main thrust of IBD is to provide an avenue for entrepreneurs to ideate, launch and scale ventures internationally by connecting prospective partners, investors and influencers.

These i3 Forums leading to the IBD Summit is a joint initiative by Mavericks365—a Delaware, U.S.-based international platform for ideas, innovation and creation with interests in co-working spaces and ecosystems—and Address Business Management, a Doha, Qatar-based end-to-end business management and consultancy firm. The summit is managed by Singapore-based event management firm XPlus International Pte Ltd.

The “i3 Forum” in Manila was attended by representatives of government agencies of the Philippines and Qatar, together with stakeholders from business sectors. Interaction at the forum was interesting and intimate as participants exchanged information about Philippine investment opportunities, global expansion opportunities, potential bilateral trade agreements, and many more.

Those who attended the Manila forum also learned from Francis Kong, an inspirational and motivational speaker on “ Going Global”; Diwa Guinigundo, Former Deputy Governor of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas; and Prof. Jay Bernardo of the ACE Center for Entrepreneurship and Management Education-Ateneo Masters in Entrepreneurship program.

A director friend saw me after watching the red carpet premiere of TBA Studio's WRITE ABOUT LOVE movie. He said that wow! I'm  into these kinds of films, local movie. I think its rare for him to see me watching a local love story movie. I told him I'm here to support a friend and I like to watch because I'm familiar with the stars - Miles Ocampo, Yeng Constantino, Rocco Nacino and Joem Bascon.
