     The College of Rehabilitation Sciences held its Charity Vote for People’s Choice in line with its MMRS Pageant Coronation last November 27, 2013.

     Project Head Whitney Ann Young said Renee Malonzo, one of the candidates, suggested that tickets should be priced at P20 and give the proceeds to the victims of typhoon Yolanda

      “However, the Office of Student Affairs does not permit the selling of tickets for college events, so the suggestion was modified by Ms. Inna Valdez, one of the organizers, that we should do a charity vote in line with our pageant’s advocacy which is health. We created a points system for the donation,” Young added.

     One point goes to each donation of clothes, shampoo sachets or toothpaste sachets. Two points are given to each donation of a soap bar. Three points are given for every donation of shampoo bottle. Four points are given for every donation of tube of toothpaste, and five points are given to donations of 1 kilo of rice or bottled water.

    Other candidates agreed to the suggestion instead of pushing through with the usual voting using Facebook likes because they “will be helping out along with trying to win People’s Choice, and in Facebook, people can just link the picture to their other friends and it becomes a contest of who has the most number of connections instead of People’s Choice.”

      Asked how health is advocated, Young said that health is advocated because what people ask to be donated are hygiene and nutrition items. She added they did not include canned goods because they did not find it nutritious.

     The collected donations will go to the victims of recent calamities through Simbahayan
