Life brings unexpected circumstances, it might happen to you or to your loved ones . But that is what makes life worth living to prepare for the uncertainty of the future. In celebration of their 4th Financial Independence this June, they have released digital short films that will make us dream, believe and strengthen our bonds with our loved ones. Sun life’s goal is to inspire Filipinos to be financially independent. Through these short films we are able to see the value of securing our loved one’s future.
Waves by Zig Maragsigan tackles what goes on the mind of the millennials; YOLO, or You ony live once, as they say. This generation has often been tagged as living by the moment and not having a clear path towards securing a future. The beginning of the film made me smile as there were “kilig” moments and it also has a bitter sweet ending. We often are not prepared for accidents so if you have a significant other, Sun Life allows them to be your beneficiary, all you need to provide is a proof of CENOMAR or Certificate of no marriage
“She said, She said” is something most people can relate to. In a modern society like ours and with the current economic situation, everybody can relate to the hardships a single mom endures. I held back my tears as I watch it. It pertains to the point of view not only by the mother but also of the daughter.
The other short film featured is Sayaw. Time is the truest test of love as this flick has showed. In a relationship, there are ups and downs. You will fall in love and might fall out of love as well. It pays to be ready for the rainy days.
It was quite a special day as four of the biggest names in showbiz represents Sun Life as ambassadors. Each one rooted for their personal choice among the Sun shorts. Piolo Pascual preferred Sayaw, Judy Ann Santos thought She Said, She said as the best, while Matteo Guidicelli selected Waves. It wouldn’t be complete without Ms. Charo Santos-Concio’s inspirational message. Just like her role in her television program, she was inspirational. According to her, life is beautiful. It is a journey that we spend along with our love ones and as much as we want to, we can never be sure of what the future brings but we can prepare for it.
Aside from the digital short films, Filipinos are in for a treat as Sun life holds a series of activities for the Millenials, moms and dads, and shoppers. Mutual funds and insurance literacy are to be provided.
This June, Sun Life has thought of helping the Millenials fulfill their need to accomplish their wandering goals. Moms and Dads are not left behind, they will get their deserved relaxation which will help clear their minds and eventually get them at their peak so they can think of their goals.
