Colgate and Rock Ed just recently awarded Php 50,000 each to youth groups who had creative ideas that will help their respective communities. The winners were awarded at the Encore Superclub last July 6th and these fresh projects are:
- Rover Palengke Programe (University of the Philippines Diliman)
- Bantay – A – Bata (San Beda College)
- Pag-asa sa Pagbasa (University of Southern Philippines)
- Magic School Bus (University of the Philippines Diliman)
- Art Camp (Karatula)
The winners were very enthusiastic to receive the grants given to them by Colgate. It’s nice to see that at their young age, they are already thinking of ways to help the community. “Tayo ang gagawa ng magandang balita”, the song is right. Be a catalyst for change.
Fresh U Project is a project between Colgate and Rock Ed Philippines. I was glad to see Rock Ed people again after Tech Tanod (a project of the Philippine Blog Awards and Rock Ed) a few months ago.

Bands that joined the awarding were Paramita and Itchyworms. Both of the bands also performed during the Fresh U concerts before in UST, Eastwood Central Plaza, UP Diliman…
Surprisingly, I saw Julie Pacanas, former roadie of Eraserheads and now with Itchyworms. I’m glad to have a quick chat with her while the band was performing. She still remembers me as the kid whom she always sees in Eraserheads gigs. 🙂
Of course, Billy Crawford and Nikki Gil were also there as endorsers of Colgate. They sang the Fresh U theme song “Sana Bukas” with Paramita.
