15 October 2015, Manila. Today, the charitable institution of Mighty Corporation, the Wong Chu King Foundation, Inc., became a FEED Patron – committing its “full-fledged support to Education & the Environment. The Foundation is known for their good deeds towards the needy and other charitable acts, such as the rebuilding of churches in the Visayas region.
PATRON (n.) One who encourages or helps a person, a cause, or a work; a furtherer; a promoter.
FEED Patrons are invaluable resource persons too. They directly advance FEED’s Education & Environment vision through the impact of their professions and life callings. They are also often pioneers, prominent and recognized change agents in their respective fields of expertise, who encourage FEED’s mission in education, environment and sustainable development.
Individual patrons support the Living Legacy program by donating PHP500 and up (photo 5Philippine Pesos) per indigenous wood tree planted in their name, or on behalf of other friends or family members. The marginal P500 cost per tree planted in his/her name covers the purchase of each seedling, tree guard, service and maintenance of at least 3 years (to ensure the proper growth of each tree managed by a local farmer), and the cost of each Plaque of Recognition which is handcrafted by local settlers at the tree planting sites, assigned to the plot where the tree is planted for a lifetime.
Patrons also steward FEED’s “Living Legacy: Plant a Tree, FEED Our Future” Program, as Ambassadors Extraordinaire. They are advisors, partners and friends of FEED, converging our efforts towards enhancing biodiversity, restoring forests and improving research and education in the fields of agriculture, education, farming, forestry and food security.
As Ambassadors Extraordinaire, FEED Patrons are individuals and organizations who also act as key spokespersons. FEED’s first patrons are former President of the Philippines HE Mr. Fidel V. Ramos & former First Lady Mrs. Amelita “Ming” Ramos.
