WM Productions started on May 2017 when a group of individuals decided to do a hike-for-a-cause event for Amber, who was battling against leukemia. Realizing it was a good way to help a friend, on the same month, Benefit Gig for Amber happened.
WM has a deeper meaning which stands for “Walang Mahina” – a phrase that one of the organizer said when he sprained his ankle, a phrase that the group chanted while finishing the trail and it was also the same phrase that sparks up to continue what they started and soon, became an advocacy to everyone, to never give up, be resilient and that someday they’ll finish the trail of pain and worries, and will reach the summit of healing and success.
WM Productions previous successful events in 2017 were “A Benefit Gig for Amber”and“Gig para kay Tita”both held at Skinny Mikes which attracted over 200-250 people who bought tickets and watched the gig. Beneficiaries for both events were now cancer-free patients. They also organized a “Hike-for-a-cause for the Hope Advance Kids” of Severina, Parañaque, held at Mt. Arayat.
“The main act for this gig is not just the music, but the influence on how we can change lives for the better” shares Dexter Bulatao, WM Productions Event lead
