Led by Frank Reichenbach, General Manager of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, 50 pieces of Philippine Eagle stuffed toy was raised from November 24, the official launch of the Wings of Hope Tree, to December 31, 2016. This campaign aims to save the Philippine Eagle and bring a smile to less fortunate kids by buying a Philippine Eagle stuffed toy and instead of keeping it, it will be donated to the kids.
With the success of the ‘Wings of Hope’ initiative, this will serve as the continuous CSR-push for the whole year. All the donated stuffed toys will be given to the chosen charity after the run of the campaign.
“May these Philippine Eagle stuffed toys inspire the kids to study hard, reach for their goals, and soar high for a better future. And with that, we invite everyone to support Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s ‘Wings of Hope’ campaign and give smile to less fortunate kids,‘ says Marco Polo Ortigas Manila General Manager, Frank Reichenbach.
Philippine Eagle Foundation is a non-government organization that focuses on Philippine eagle survival through a conservation breeding program that re-introduces species to their natural habitat to avoid extinction.
Started in 1965, it aims to raise awareness and address one of the wildlife conservation crisis that the Philippine Eagle Foundation is facing today is the survival of the national bird, the Philippine Eagle. With its possible extinction in the future, if not taken care of, would be a decrease not just in the culture, but also in the quality of Philippine environment. As of 2015, there are expected of around 400 Philippine Eagle left in the world.
The Philippine Eagle stuffed toy is available at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila for Php 600. To know more information about the Philippine Eagle and this campaign, visit www.philippineeaglefoundation.org.
