HBC empowers GK through beauty advocacy

Gawad Kalinga Bulaklakan Republic in Quezon City
More than just selling beauty products, Pinoy personal care retailer HBC, Inc. is committed to bringing the advocacy of beauty to Gawad Kalinga communities in an effort to help more Filipinos rise from poverty. 

HBC, in partnership with Gawad Kalinga, has officially launched its Beautiful Planet campaign through a community immersion in Gawad Kalinga’s Bulaklakan Village in Quezon City. The campaign is HBC’s social and environmental advocacy brand, which aims to build mutual relationships, beautify communities through green programs and initiate sustainable efforts. 

To highlight the launch, HBC employees, headed by their Chairman and CEO Dr. Rosalinda San San Ang-Hortaleza brought their beauty expertise to Gawad Kalinga through simultaneous activities such as tree planting, walkway building and free haircutting services in partnership with the Ang-Hortaleza Foundation, wherein close to a hundred residents were served.

After the activities, HBC, together with the Gawad Kalinga community, shared a sumptuous meal through a boodle fight with native delicacies personally prepared by the kapitbahayans of the Gawad Kalinga village. 

HBC affirms that what they’ve shared with Gawad Kalinga is more than just a physical transformation for it gives a deeper meaning to the community’s view of a beautiful life. To make the Beautiful Planet advocacy sustainable, HBC will provide livelihood projects to help augment the community’s source of income through the Ang-Hortaleza Foundation’s Ganda Mo, Hanap Buhay Ko (GMHK) program, a series of cosmetology training modules. 

“The GMHK program is HBC’s way of giving back to the community. It is not enough to just have a decent place to live in but what is more important is finding a way to improve the quality of the community’s life by giving them a source of living that will enable them to build a beautiful future for their families,” says Dra. San San.
