Musikaramay: Music for a Cause
Music is very powerful tool that can touch people's lives. Last August 10, STI Caloocan was introduced to a non-profit organization, MUSIKARAMAY : MUSIKA (Music) + KARAMAY (EMPATHIZE ) which aims to BUIILD A LEAGUE OF REAL LIFE SUPERHEROES THRU STREET MUSIC. This advocacy was founded by the band CLIMAX, which basically plays in the streets around Metro Manila (namamalimos) to raise funds for different charitable institutions.
They've raised funds for the Bohol earthquake victims, typhoon Rubi and typhoon Yolanda survivors, Aeta communities in Tarlac and Subic, kids with cancer at PCMC and NCH and currently has 10 scholars at Blessed Ville Special School in Cavite. Partnering with Musikaramay, AOC Monitors, Philips LED TV, Philips Monitors, Globe, Jollibee, Chowking and Yoshinoya, STI CALOOCAN'S mission was to touch the hearts of the students, through Music, and participate in raising money for our less fortunate brothers and sisters living at Sangandaan-Tugatog cemetery.
With powerful renditions of popular songs from Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran, etc.., STIers began gathering at the covered court area, started dancing and singing. Some even jammed and sang with them on stage. The whole experience made everyone ecstatic. But the most important thing is it made the students aware that the act of giving can make a difference our the society. One by one the students started giving from their hearts and shared their blessings. Before the event ended, the box where the donations were kept was already full. BeSTI at it’s finest. REAL LIFE SUPERHEROES indeed!!
