Expo Mom 2015: #MomManifesto

ExpoMom2015 #MomManifesto

Expo Mom 2015 takes a different turn this year as it focuses on the moms! Mommy Mundo encourages moms to reflect and discover themselves through the the Mom Manifesto campaign which happened from April 22-May 20. Taking only 15 minutes to complete each session, the online workshop helps moms to become more intentional with the way they use their time and be aware of their missions, not only as moms but as fulfilled women, whether they are working or staying at home.

During Expo Mom 2015 which happens on May 22-25 at the Glorietta 2 Palm Drive, Makati City, there will be a culminating activity for all moms who joined this campaign. They will also get to share their #MomManifesto . Expo Mom 2015 celebrates the purposeful moms who knows her mission in life, her goals and priorities, her hopes and dreams!

Of course, the trademark fair of mom-approved and mom-tested products and services during the annual Expo Mom event will also be worth visiting! Each year, there are many products that I have personally discovered for my kids through Expo Mom exhibits.

Expo Mom 2015: #MomManifesto is co-presented by Cordlife Philippines, supported by Huggies, Cycles Mid Detergent, Fern-C, Nurture Nook, Pioneer Insurance, JoomaJam, Wang Videography, ImagineNation Photography, and media partners Working Mom Magazine, Rappler, WheninManila.com, Crossover 105.1, Newlyweds@Work, and venue partner Glorietta and Ayala Center.

Donations in cash and kind (books, school supplies, clothes and shoes) will be accepted at the entrance of the expo. All proceeds will go to MomShare’s partner beneficiary, Childhope Asia Philippines. This is for the literacy and health programs for street children under its care.

Our Expo Mom 2014 Experience

Together with my kids, we went to Glorietta last May 17 to check out Mommy Mundo’s Expo Mom 2014! We have been going to the bazaar yearly because we always find unique items. This year was no exception.

The entrance fee was on a donation basis as a support to the Kinder Project. No amount was too small as funds collected will go to materials that public school teachers in Payatas will use.

We went around and saw familiar mompreneurs and some of our favorite products. We saw Piggy Paints from Mama Baby Love and the bags from Manila Baby Shop!

Ant’s Pocket and Paperchic Studio were some of our favorite stops too. We love doing crafts together as a family so these booths were on our list!

My daughter’s favorite booth this year was The Princess and the Pea because of their girly dresses and chandelier display that goes with the beautiful dresses. She was a bit sad that the dresses were too small for her already.My son loved Sand Puff! They were giving a great deal but sadly after going around, we went back to purchase it, the booth was already closing.

 

One of the shops that we kept going back to was Great Discoveries for Kids. They were selling the giant world map jigsaw puzzle and many Clementoni board games. We got the Let’s Go Shopping board game as a supplement to our Math studies.

One of the high lights of my day was meeting mompreneur Paola Loot of Mommy Treats! I have bought her lactation goodies for a friend of mine when she gave birth last year from Mommy Treats. It was great to finally meet her face to face and she was kind enough to give me cookies too! I finally tasted it and it was really good – even for non-pregnant or non-lactating moms!

It was a wonderful day to just unwind and be with moms that day! The whole bazaar had this festive mood. It was a well spent day off for super busy mom like me.

Motherhood is an overwhelming job. Seriously, you never take a break, never take a vacation and get no monetary compensation. But motherhood is the most joyous vocation. You get to do what you absolutely love and you get intagible rewards and wonderful memories that can never measure up to any monetary amount.

This mother’s day, I am joining Mommy Mundo’s Expo Mom shout out. “You The Mom!” Applauding and appreciating all the mothers who do what they have to do for the love of their child.

Mommy Mundo founder Janice Villanueva says, “We admire moms for their almost superhuman qualities, their powers in time management and multitasking alongside their ability to do anything and everything for their loved ones, and they all do these things wholeheartedly and passionately at that! And because most moms do all these tasks with grace and usually with flair eveb, we may sometimes forget to show her some appreciation and affirmation.”
