Couple With a Purpose
Dream Big Pilipinas; Mano Amiga
Raring to commit your time to a cause close to your heart? It helps when your partner is also on board. Newlyweds Lynn Pinugu and Miguel Bermundo each have their own advocacies, which take up a lot of their time, but they find it advantageous to have a partner who completely understands the commitment involved.
“I think it saves us a lot of time, not having to explain ourselves or making up for something that we don’t think is wrong kasi it takes so much time [and energy],” says Miguel, one of the directors of Dream Big Pilipinas.
Lynn, co-founder and executive director of Mano Amiga, adds, “It’s nice to be aligned in terms of the purpose or the meaning that we’re seeking in our lives.” Read on to find out more about the couple’s causes.
