The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP’s First Bag for “A” Cause Sale

ASP’s “Bag for ‘A’ Cause” launch had its first run at the 3rd Chapter Leaders Conference last August 28 to 30 at the Legend Villas, Mandaluyong City. Lady chapter leaders went home with big smiles as they packed branded bags brought at rock bottom prizes.

Gina Bermudo, ASP Trustee donated several slightly used, but well kept branded bags and shoes for the project. “Mahal ko ang mga bags at shoes,” confessed Gina. ”Pero…while clutching a Salvatorre Ferragamo Bag.…mas mahal ko ang ASP !”

Prada, Miumiu, Vivian Westwood, Paloma Picasso, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Salvatorre Ferragamo bags, to name a few, were sold at less than 10 % of the current market price. The bags were sold out in the first few hours!

True Fashionistas can really spot a true bargain. They waited by the car park early the next day for the second batch. Originally, ASP only planned to sell bags, but participants clamored for branded shoes.

Ladies that got big feet had no problem cramming them into Mahnolo Blanik, Bruno Magli, Bally, Miumiu, Prada, and other Italian shoes. Again, they were all sold out the following day.

After the three day sale, Gina Bermudo turned over all the proceeds to ASP Treasurer, Evelyn Go. The initial amount will go to ASP’s Endowment Fund. The first sale was a great success. Please continue to support ASP’s “Bag for ‘A’ Cause” program by patronizing our future events.
