We all didn't expect this pandemic to happen.  In the past four months, we've seen many shift from office work to work from home.  There were a lot who lost their jobs.  Businesses closed down.  Parents panicked and worried about their children's education.  Lastly, almost everyone fears both their health and financial conditions - and their family's future.

This personal observation of mine from the news on radio and TV and social media was echoed by Sun Life's own survey.  During the online launch of Sun Life's Rise Together Campaign, they shared that they ran a survey through their clients to know how the pandemic has affected them so the company would know how to respond to their needs.  Results showed that their top concerns were the physical health of their family (71%), the health of the economy (71%), their children's education (69%), providing support for an elderly member of the family (61%), and the ability to save for the future (63%).

In a separate survey they did, respondents said they are putting in place recovery plans by starting to save more, build emergency funds, seeking financial advice, and investing in family's health.  Indeed this pandemic has made many of us realign our priorities in life after realizing that life is short and unpredictable.

This inspired Sun Life to launch Rise Together Campaign

“We would like to help Filipinos channel their energies towards actions that would help them prepare for the future. While there is still much uncertainty as our country continues to deal with the pandemic, there are steps that they can take now to make sure they and their loved ones can look forward to brighter days,” Sun Life Chief Marketing and Client Officer Mylene Lopa said. “Through this campaign, we want to show Filipinos how they can emerge from this pandemic stronger, healthier, and financially resilient, so they may look forward to a brighter tomorrow.”

Financial Literacy
I've always believed in preparing for the future because we can never tell what may happen.  I made a practical decision back in 2012 when I had myself protected and at the same time got an investment too.  I became more interested in insurances and investments so I educated myself through friends who are experts in this field and through free talks.  Later on, I invested in several mutual funds.

I have a Sun Life mutual fund and I also got a VUL for my husband and my eldest.  Soon, I'll get for my two youger boys.

I'm glad Sun Life  launched Sun Talks, a series of online financial literacy sessions held in webinar format and as Facebook live streams.

The webinar series featured Wealth Coach Chinkee Tan, Life and Personal Finance Guru Randell Tiongson, Sun Life Chief Business Development Strategy Officer Michael Manuel, and Sun Life Distribution Support and Strategy Head Jenny del Mundo, who shared how Filipinos can pursue their financial goals and what financial instruments such as insurance and investments they can utilize. Meanwhile, health and wellness took center stage in the webinars with Dr. Anne Louise Gabriel-Chan of Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center, Dr. Candy Drilon-Dalman of Centro Holistico, Life and Corporate Coach Kimi Lu, and Sun Life Health and Accident Head Lirio Ang-Torres.

Meanwhile, Sun Life Brand Ambassadors Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli, Enchong Dee, and Inigo Pascual were featured in Facebook Live events, where they shared about learnings amid the pandemic as they faced issues specific to their respective life stages. Experts from Sun Life were likewise on hand in each session to give practical tips on how viewers can stay on track in their financial journey. These talks, along with other relevant content and tools, are available in a hub called STORES or Sun Talks Online Resource at
