Jollibee celebrated the Philippines’ 117th Independence through a tweet-powered cake


On June 12, 2015, the Philippines celebrated its 117th Independence Day, an important date in our history that is also considered as the birth of our nation. To commemorate this special occasion, Jollibee asked Pinoy’s Ano’ng gift mo sa Pilipinas? With the launch of the Happy Birthday Pilipinas Project. After invoking Filipino pride with their foreignoy campaign last year and declaring ang sarap maging Pilipino! The country’s leading fast food chain appealed to the Filipino youth to voice out their commitment via social media and to spring into action thru simple acts that they can do for their gift on its birthday.

Being a proudly Filipino brand, we’d like to enjoin every Pinoy, especially the youth to celebrate our country’s birthday in an extra ordinary way. With the happy birthday Pilipinas Project, we’re encouraging everyone not just to express that ang sarap maging Pilipino but to take action and do their own part in giving back to their country, said Vice President for Marketing Harvey Ong.

Of course no birthday is complete without a cake. Jollibee prepared a very special birthday cake for the occasion – Jollibee used the commitment expressed by the Filipinos and Pinoys at heart on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook with the hashtag #HappyBdayPilipinas to decorate the cake. The birthday cake was unv eiled as part of a simple yet symbolic Independence day program at the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite, where the Philippine flag was first hoisted and the Marcha National Filipina was played before Filipinos in 1898.

Present in the event were Camarines Sur Third District Representative Leni-Gerona Robredo, Cavite Governer Juanito Victor Remulla, and Joliibee representatives headed by South Luzon Regional Business Unit Head Bambi Bejo. Jollibee Kids Club members participated in the candle blowing.
