  • 1. An online auction for the benefit of children October 21 to 27, 2013
  • 2. We started the auction in 2011 with minimal expense but with lots of heart and determination, believing that the worlds of art and design can come together for a worthy cause – helping our children. Our efforts paid off as the auction has since raised over P4 million for children’s programs through the tireless efforts of UNICEF Special Advocate for Children Daphne Osena Paez and our amazing fundraising team. UNICEF relies entirely on voluntary donations from individuals, companies and governments, and the funds raised from this year’s auction will be in support of Millennium Development Goal 2: Achieve universal primary education. Proceeds from the auction will fund a unique education program to provide young children access to early learning through what we call Supervised Neighborhood Play Programme (SNP). SNP is an alternative form of early childhood education using home-based, neighborhood play as a learning strategy. The program is implemented in remote, conflict or disaster-affected communities and in informal settlements located in urban areas which are not served by day care centers. Message from Tomoo Hozumi UNICEF Country Representative UNICEF Country Representative Tomoo Hozumi turns over child-friendly education packages to help children get back to their normal routine after Typhoon Pablo in Davao Oriental. ©UNICEF Philippines/2013/KPalasi I would like to thank Daphne and all the artists, partners, media friends and auction participants for supporting our humble auction since it started in 2011. Your support will go towards helping young children have a chance to finish their education. Your contribution will reverberate in children’s lives for years to come. Tomoo Hozumi UNICEF Country Representative
  • 3. Now on its third year, UNICEF Philippines’ Auction for Action 2013 is an online fundraising event that brings together works of the best Filipino talents in art, furniture, design and jewelry to benefit the poorest, most disadvantaged children. I consider the auction as my baby that was conceived one afternoon in the office of then UNICEF Communications Chief Angela Travis almost three years ago. We wanted to marry my background in art and design with my advocacy for children but make it fun and interesting for public participation. UNICEF Auction for Action is one of the fun ways we can make an impact in the lives of children in the Philippines. Filipino creativity gets highlighted and at the same time we raise funds and awareness on important children’s issues. We do it online to minimize costs and we’ve very happy to have partners donating their resources to make the auction possible. To inspire the work of designers and artists, we asked them to donate pieces with the theme of “Play” because proceeds from the auction will go to UNICEF’s Supervised Neighborhood Play (SNP) Program. Message from Daphne Oseña Paez UNICEF Special Advocate for Children UNICEF and partners trained teachers like Joy (right) to use play, drawings, singing and dancing to help children cope and deal with fear and stress after Typhoon Pablo. ©UNICEF Philippines/2013/KPalasi As you browse through these pages, I hope you can feel the inspiration behind the pieces and the joy we felt as we were putting this auction into fruition. Hopefully, you will also be motivated to buy a piece or two to help make learning through play accessible for children who need it the most. Happy bidding! Daphne Oseña Paez UNICEF Special Advocate for Children
