Buy and Give through Caritas Manila’s Expo at the Trinoma

By Posted on 2 m read

One of the oldest to have Catholic church-initiated organizations is the Caritas Manila and just before the Christmas season, Caritas will be be organizing an expo in Quezon City. .      

This November 29 to December 1, Caritas Manila will hold its anniversary expo in the activity center of Ayala Trinoma Mall in Quezon City.

Celebrating 60 Years of Living Faith in its Social Mission, this year’s anniversary expo will feature and showcase products made by social entrepreneurs via Caritas Manila’s own social enterprise: Caritas Margins and Segunda Mana. This event aims to rais e funds to help sustain the pro-poor programs of Caritas Manila.

Segunda Mana Caritas Margins

The products sold in the BUY and GIVE EXPO are made by the poor communities and from the marginalized sector currently being supported by Caritas Manila.

Art pieces are made by residents from National Bilibid Prison, gift items, accessories, and personal care products made by urban poor families, pre-loved items and inventories from our benefactors and corporate partners are just some of the products showcased in this Expo.

Dubbed as BUY and GIVE because for every product you BUY, you actually GIVE to someone in need.

These are the 3 ways:

1st – the item one buys gives income to the producer of the product from the poor community/marginalized sector;

2nd – part of the revenues will be plowed back to help sustain Caritas Manila’s pro-poor programs, specifically on Skills and Livelihood Training and Youth Servant Leadership and Education Programs; and

3rd – buying the product is giving to oneself or for someone else to appreciate.

Good finds at reasonable prices and helping uplift other peoples’ lives… come to Caritas Manila’s BUY & GIVE EXPO.
