Generosity, compassion, and a genuine concern for others -— these are a few of the outstanding Filipino values that Jollibee celebrates through the annual Jollibee Family Values Awards (JFVA). Now on its fifth year, the JFVA is again starting its global search for outstanding Filipino families who have made it their mission to help others with their noble deeds and advocacies.
Since it began in 2011, the JFVA has grown into a nationally established, annual celebration of Filipino family values. The campaign has paid tribute to a total of 25 families from all over the Philippines and the world, each of whom are active in noteworthy advocacies that improve the lives of their fellowmen. Committed to encouraging Filipinos to do good deeds as one family, the JFVA has received praise from the nation’s leaders, family and parenting advocates, and the media. It also took home various awards from the Philippine Quill and Anvil Awards, and was even lauded by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, through the conferment of the Family Values Award (FVA) in 2013.
“Year after year, we are inspired by the various stories of generosity, hope and selflessness by the families nominated in the Jollibee Family Values Awards,” said Jollibee Vice President for Marketing Harvey T. Ong. “Whether through acts of kindness, saving the environment, or supporting worthy causes that brighten the lives of others, these extraordinary families show that all of us can do our share and are capable of helping the less fortunate.”
Interested parties who wish to nominate model families -— including their own —- must accomplish the nomination form (available for free in all Jollibee branches nationwide or for download at www.jollibee.com.ph/familyvaluesawards), and answer the questionnaire on the nominated family's suitability and eligibility. Entries may be sent via mail to 5th Jollibee Family Values Awards, Stratworks, Inc., 2/F Zaragoza Building, 102 Gamboa St., Legaspi Village, Makati City or personal delivery to any Jollibee store nationwide. The deadline of submission of nominations is on July 31, 2015.
