Orange is the color of hope. It symbolizes strength and endurance. The citrus color is also associated with healthy food. It is said to increase the oxygen supply to the brain. It stimulates not only the appetite but also mental activity.
From Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, 23 hotels and restaurants in 37 locations all over the country will offer a special dish with the color orange on the menu — from cocktails to cupcakes, roast chicken to pancit luglug and many other imaginative culinary creations.
“While enjoying these treats, diners can take their stand to Say No to Violence Against Women, as proceeds will be donated to the Cameleon Association, a French NGO committed to rehabilitate sexually abused girls by incest, 15 to 18 years old,” says Rita Dy, president of the Zonta Club of Makati-Ayala.
The global campaign of Zonta International marks 16 days of activism, which starts on International Day, for the elimination of gender-based violence on Nov. 25, and ends on International Human Rights Day on Dec. 10. Orange is the color adopted by the campaign.
