May 30, 2015, EPCALM will once again hold its regular Family Huddle for EPCALM Patients and their families and volunteers. This family huddle will have a “twist”, as a bazaar will be held simultaneous to the event, where donated goods from patrons, supporters and patient families will be made on sale. This will also be the start of a regular bazaar of donated goods, which proceeds we can use to donate to needy patient families.
We also encourage patrons, volunteers and friends to bring “white elephants” from your closets, which we will sell in future bazaars to be scheduled.
For the huddle, we have invited Mr. Jorge Wienenke III of GoNegosyo as the resource speaker. Jorge Wieneke III is a consultant and think tank who creates and strategizes a wide array of business ideas for his clientele. A 23-year veteran of the food industry, best known for his successful conception and expansion of Potato Corner, Jorge’s entrepreneurial skills are highlighted with an innate creativity that simply make him a stalwart in the industry.
Jorge is a big man with a big mission in life. His advocacy is to create entrepreneurs out of a majority of Filipinos, whether small, medium or large. His ultimate goal is to make Filipinos self-sufficient and to be proud of their own.
Now, Jorge is the face of PLDT KaAsenso. He is commissioned to be the go-to-guy of every minigosyante, providing them business tips and advice.
As EPCALM encourages patients and their families to be self-sustaining in the midst of crises in their lives, having an entrepreneur speaker in Jorge will encourage patients and their families to rise above the financial crises that they encounter, when leukemia besets them.
