Expo Mom, the longest running event of its kind, marked another milestone at the recently concluded Expo Mom #TeamMom 2017 at the Glorietta Activity Center. Gathering 15,000 attendees and over 90 companies under one roof, Expo Mom solidified its standing as the biggest and most extensive expo in the mom and baby category.
As it celebrates its tenth year, Expo Mom proved to be another groundbreaking event featuring an extremely timely campaign, an awesome selection of the latest products and services in the market, an engaging repertoire of onstage activities, and such family-friendly features as a play area, a dad lounge, and a breastfeeding station. Here, highlights of Expo Mom #TeamMom 2017!
As Expo Mom celebrates its tenth year, the longest running event of its kind pays tribute to #TeamMoms that have served as a lifeline for mothers all over the Philippines. Here, three mothers bounded by something extra special draw strength and inspiration from each other, allowing them to lead fruitful lives filled with hope.
Michelle Ressa Aventajado, Neva Arboleda Santos, and Betty Ching Sy crossed paths because of something extra special. Each of these three different women leading three entirely different lives have been blessed with a child with an extra chromosome. In particular, Betty says, “The extra chromosome refers to the extra chromosome in the 21st set that causes Down syndrome. It’s extra special, extra everything.”
Rather than sulking about this extra something, these moms have taken what many perceive as a challenge into something truly inspiring. The three women are not only hands-on mommas, they are also actively involved in organizations working to improve the lives of children with Down Syndrome like Best Buddies and Night to Shine. As they worked to make things better for their children, they were happily surprised to find friends in each other as well.
