Blogger Moms and their families trooped to the most
exciting party this year, Galactic Mission 7, featuring only the best-loved
products for mommies and kids.
Before I plunge into telling you all the blogging event yesterday, allow me to tell you how I ever had this best chance of attending it.
Last month, I attended my first ever blogging event - The Mommy Blogger's Workshop. There I met the very lovable host Marylaine Loiuse Lagran Viernes and she was very kind to approach me and said, "Hey, Mommy! I'd like to invite you to a Star Wars Party next month, May 29. Hope you can come." Oh, sure! I have nothing to do on a Sunday and Mika, my second daughter is a die-hard fan of Star Wars, so I said YES!
And so, we went yesterday and we had a great time celebrating this event and enjoying all the freebies and information that the major and minor sponsors have given us.
CORDLIFE Philippines: One Chance, One Choice. The Cordlife team, led by brand manager, Ms. Jonelyn De Belen along with medical and brand experts were able elucidate the participants on the benefits of banking Cord blood. There is only one opportunity to collect and store the stem cells found in the cord blood and this is only during birth.
Stem cells are at the forefront of one of the most fascinating and revolutionary areas of medicine today. Doctors recognize that stem cells have the potential to help treat numerous diseases by generating healthy new cells and tissue. A wide range of diseases is treatable with stem cells such as acute and chronic forms of leukemia and myeloproliferative disorders to name a few.
CORDLIFE has also launched a bigger contest for bloggers, where 10 lucky winners will walk away with Sodexo gift certificates! Consolation prizes of 1,000 pesos worth of Sodexo gift certificates will be given away to 5 participating bloggers while 2,000 pesos worth of Sodexo gift certificates will be given to 4 minor winners and one lucky Cordlife Blogger will be awarded 10,000.00 worth of Sodexo gift certificates!
