MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES – As part of the 102nd founding anniversary of the City of Muntinlupa with the theme “Pagpapatuloy ng Kaunlaran sa Ikalawang Siglo ng Muntinlupa,” the City honored a number of its outstanding citizens in the fields of public service, academics, and sports in recent rites led by City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi.
Awardees for public service were Transportation Sec. Arthur Tugade, Metropolitan Waterworks & Sewerage System (MWSS) Administrator Lt. Gen. Emmanuel B. Salamat (ret.), Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Deputy Governor Francisco Dakila Jr., National Academy of Science and Technology of the Philippines, and outstanding scientist Dr. Nathaniel Hermosa II.
One of the distinguished awardees for public service was none other than the Founder and CEO of IdeasxMachina Clemente Domingo III for his tireless efforts in Malaking Muntinlupa Foundation.
Malaking Muntinlupa or “Malaking Munti”, formerly Poblacion Boys Club of Muntinlupa City is an apostolic undertaking of IdeasXMachina, a ten-year old local creative agency now under Hakuhodo of Japan, one of the world’s top integrated marketing solutions agencies.
Clemente Domingo III, the founder of the Foundation said, “For the past years, we’ve had the Malaking Munti Summer Camp and the #TaraLaroTayoSaLabas enrichment programs. We have also hosted the first Malaking Munti Summer Camp for Girls and Likhang Aralin, a set of free art workshops for Filipino elementary and high school public students in Metro Manila.”
Domingo believes that the education of the Filipino youth, especially less-privileged children, must be reinforced with character-building activities within their community to foster a desire to become better and to achieve more in life.
“This truly is my way of not forgetting where I came from, and how my own experienced growing up in Muntinlupa has inspired me to enable kids to dream big and achieve greatness even from small beginnings. We endeavor to do this by organizing fun, grassroots-based events that allow children to learn and live the virtues of courage, excellence, and service,” Domingo added.
IdeasXMachina|Hakuhodo recently brought honor to the Philippines by bringing home two golds the coveted Campaign Agency of the Year 2019 Best in Culture which it has won two-years in a row. The agency also brought home the Best in Talent Management Program that has resulted in having the last four winners and finalists of the Southeast Asia Young Achiever of The Year coming from IdeasXMachina|Hakuhodo.
