The Daily Guardian is a renascent Iloilo-based publishing firm and media outfit with bureaus in Kalibo, Boracay, Roxas, Bacolod, Antique, Guimaras, and Manila. Led by Iloilo’s most respected journalists, the Daily Guardian pledges to tell the Ilonggo story as seen through the various lenses of society so that every side may be told.
Fueled by her desire to help those in need, Miss Iloilo Dinagyang 2016 Vanessa Caro donated blood through MORE Electric and Power Corp’s (MORE Power) bloodletting activity.
The blood donation drive, in partnership with Philippine Red Cross (PRC), is one of the activities in celebration of the 3rd anniversary of MORE Power as Iloilo City’s power distributor.
Caro, who is representing Iloilo province to the Miss Universe Philippines pageant, said she was very excited to donate blood.
“I am very excited because Red Cross Philippines is here today to ensure that we are able to donate blood to our brothers and sisters who are in need,” Caro said.
A total of 27 individuals joined MORE Power’s blood donation drive this year.
According to MORE Power president Roel Castro, their first blood donation campaign was during their 2nd anniversary celebration in 2021.
Since then, they have been conducting more bloodletting activities.
“We hope this alleviates pressures on the health sector and the Philippine Red Cross in saving more lives,” Castro said.
MORE Power’s top honcho also encouraged the public to donate blood and be heroes in their own way.
“We can all be heroes in our own ways, and that includes donating our blood whenever we can. Through this, we at MORE Power wish to stay true to our promise of helping our Ilonggo community,” he added.
Meanwhile, Caro said she would continue to encourage everyone to trust More Power and its capabilities to serve and deliver better services.
The beauty queen shared her conversation with Castro who emphasized the importance of good customer service and allowing the Ilonggos to feel the hospitality of an electric company who truly cares about its consumers.
“I am very excited to see where MORE Power is going, to continue onwards for the next five years, and eventually 20 years to better success in providing the Ilonggos with continued service and great customer service,” Caro said.
