HP Imaging and Printing Group (IPG) recently made the world a little brighter for children with cancer as it donated 1 million pesos to Project: Brave Kids last January 27 at the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC). The amount was taken from the proceeds of HP IPG’s The Giving Three promo, and will be used to fund sponsored chemotherapy treatments for three young recipients selected by Project: Brave Kids.

For this project, we aim to inculcate a positive attitude and develop the well-being not just of the children but also of the parents. Helping them gives them the message that you understand their situation, which in turn gives them courage,” says Erwin Creencia, Inkjet and Web Solutions Market Development Manager, HP IPG.
