McDonalds and Seven Eleven “I am for Peace” Campaign Business Partners

McDonalds and Seven Eleven named Business Partners for Peace for Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process.
Under the “Business Partners for Peace” program, OPAPP will tie up with several companies such as McDonald’s and 7-11 that will carry peace as their advocacy.

Meanwhile, Black Eyed Peas singer, top endorser Anne Curtis, and Gerald Anderson are among today’s celebrities who will be named National Peace Ambassadors during the launch of the “I am for Peace” campaign in Malacañan Palace this Friday, September 14, Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Teresita Quintos Deles announced.

“Coming from diverse industries and backgrounds, the Peace Ambassadors will unite for one meaningful cause: peace,” Deles added.

Joining them in saying “I am for Peace” will be no less than President Benigno S. Aquino III who will lead the campaign launch,” Deles said.

More Filipinos are pledging their support for peace as the agreement between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front nears its signing, according to Deles.

“The government has been working hard; but peace building is not the work of government alone. We need more stakeholders who believe in the peace process. For a peace agreement to be truly successful, we’ll need the participation of the entire nation,” Deles said.

The “I am for Peace” campaign seeks to engage all sectors of society in sustaining support for the country’s peace process. It will also mobilize social engagements and information dissemination especially on the significant developments and milestones of the on-going Mindanao peace talks.

“The campaign encourages different sectors to contribute in achieving just and lasting peace in the country,” Deles said. “It will also launch the ‘I Choose: Peace’ youth football program and the ‘Business Partners for Peace’ promoting peace advocacy for companies.”
