This weekend, NoBox is launching the #FireflyInitiative as we join the global campaign Support. Don’t Punish.
Through an online campaign on June 26 and a day of activities at NoBox on June 27, NoBox Philippines celebrate support, hope, and potential. The organization believes in supporting people who use drugs for the most simple and basic fact that people who use drugs are people. When it comes to people who use drugs, there is no “us versus them,” there is just us. We want to cultivate a culture where support for one another, where having each other’s backs, is second nature. Even everyday simple displays of support highlight something of great significance: that we are all connected.
On June 26, during the Support. Don’t Punish. Global Day of Action, we’d like to invite you to post online, on facebook, instagram, or to tweet in what way, big or small, can you show support to someone today? Dont forget to include the hashtags #FireflyInitiative #SupportDontPunish
On June 27, The organization will be holding at NoBox a day of activities to celebrate support, potential, and things we can achieve. There will be several booths where people can express their views and hopes for the world: what do we want to do, and what can we, in our collective action accomplish? On this day, we look forward to what we can do, and we remember who we’re doing it for. Activities include a filmmaking Q&A, art corners, photo and video booths, and a coalition dinner. In our token-making booth, we will launch the Firefly Initiative. We will be creating reminders of the light that is in everyone: in each one we meet, and sometimes, we forget, in ourselves. In every person there is light. In every person, there is always hope.`
We would like to invite you to join us on Saturday @NoBox Transitions, 1707 17th floor The Trade and Financial Tower 7th Ave. cor. 32nd St., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Activities starts at 10 in the morning.
Step up! Extend a helping hand, not only today but in every day of your life.
