Throughout the entirety of the COVID pandemic, frontliners have been hard at work to ensure the health and safety of everyone. They’ve been working round the clock, some even pulling 24-48 hour shifts just to help out. Knowing just how much they’ve sacrificed, communities, organizations, and companies have also stepped up to assist frontliners.  

LG Philippines is one of the companies who’ve been continuously giving aid to frontliners for the duration of the pandemic. The South Korean tech giant has collaborated with hospitals, local governments, and nonprofits in order to give assistance to healthcare workers. 

Globe, Caritas Philippines join hands to create a #GlobeOfGood


Two years into the pandemic, involuntary hunger rates are still found to be at 10%, according to the Social Weather Stations and the Philippine Statistics Office– higher by 1.2% than pre-pandemic levels. This is aggravated by the 6.4% unemployment rate.

But while Filipinos still struggle to adjust to a new way of life, families continue to confront even more hardships, among them those affected when Typhoon Odette hit several parts of the country in December.

Four-year old Fatima and her family from Talibon, Bohol were among those severely affected by the powerful typhoon. They lost their home and most of their belongings due to the storm, leaving them lost in uncertainties in their daily life.  In other areas, Nanay Evangeline from Dalaguete, Cebu, and Myrabel from Taytay, Palawan, were also greatly affected - losing their homes and livelihood due to Odette.

Sharlene San Pedro sprints through borrowed time on pop-rock single “Running”

The punchy midtempo tune takes listeners through a journey of introspection

Outside of her acting and hosting accolades, Sharlene San Pedro has successfully branched out into a music career, landing a top 10 hit with a cover of Mayonnaise’s “Paraan” in 2016 and dropping her second single “Stars & Caramel Bars” to commercial acclaim in 2017. With the guidance of Mayonnaise’s lead singer and chief songwriter-producer Monty Macalino, the young multimedia star has released songs that balance teen pop with easy-listening sensibilities—a signature sound that she continues to hone and develop through her stint in the music industry for more than five years.

Fast forward to 2022, Sharlene returns with a new song that takes listeners through a journey of introspection, in search of something possibly out of reach. Written and produced by Macalino, with Angee Rozul as its sound engineer, “Running” is a punchy midtempo tune that ranks among her finest in terms of range and delivery. “My past releases are slow and easy listening, so this time, Yellow Room Music, especially sir Monty, is trying to aim for a little upbeat kind of song for my new single,” Sharlene shares in a statement.

According to the 22-year-old singer-actress, the pop-rock track is all about “feeling all the emotions and trying to live in that particular moment or memory but you know you're running out of time.”

Shopee remains committed to help MSMEs transition to digital easily and seamlessly as it once again partners with the DTI to launch the #TatakPinoy Virtual Trade Fair from March 18-24. This initiative is in line with Shopee’s goal to provide local MSMEs with the support that they need to grow their businesses online.

Through the week-long virtual trade fair, Shopee users will be able to discover and purchase Filipino-made essentials from a variety of shops ranging from snack food, health & beauty, groceries & pet stores, fashion, and more, at discounted rates. This year’s #TatakPinoy Virtual Trade Fair will feature a diverse range of local sellers from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. This is among Shopee’s many initiatives to empower local businesses to shift online and encourage users to support them.  Alongside these virtual trade fairs, sellers are also provided with different marketing tools, training, and initiatives to help them maximize their businesses’ growth on the platform such as Shopee University Summit, where local MSMEs can learn ways to drive their business growth from industry speakers and leaders.
