Barefoot Wines Bring "The Barefoot Ark" Making the World a Kinder Place

In a world filled with cruelty, climate change, wars and all-around bad news, it’s no wonder people turn towine for just a little more positivity. One wine brand takes it a few steps further. Barefoot Wines.

Barefoot Wines believes that creating massive positive change starts with little acts of kindness. Just a little kind word here, a kind deed there, all build up to snowball and create the kind of world we would all be happy to live in.



This is why on August 29, 2019, Barefoot Wines launches The Barefoot ARK, a kindness movement at changing things for the better, one small step at a time. ARK stands for Acts of Random Kindness – easy, little deeds that make the world just a little better for everyone.

Kicking o with a press launch at Gourmet Gypsy Art Café attended by around 50 representatives from traditional and digital media, The Barefoot Ark launch, unveiled its advocacy video, mission and vision.

Watch below my live coverage during the media launch:

Through the Barefoot ARK page on Facebook and Instagram, followers and volunteers are encouraged to do, post and share acts of random kindness. While deeds help brighten one person, creature or community’s life, posting and sharing these deeds help make social media a better place for the rest of us—brightening our feeds, encouraging others to do the same, and helping people know that despite the darkness, there are glimmers of light created by kind people everywhere.

And here is my live coverage during the discussion of the Barefoot Ark:


Aside from just the page and the social media movement calling for acts of kindness, Barefoot encourages and motivates through its monthly search for ARK of the Month where acts of random kindness posted on social media may be nominated to win prizes care of the company.


Barefoot Wines is a specialty wine brand from California known for its distinctly fun personality, and as the brand pioneered worthy-cause marketing, supporting people and causes such as the environment, education and community building. Brought to the Philippines by Emperador Distillers, Inc. and exclusively distributed by S&R Membership Shopping, Barefoot Wines brings with it its tradition of worthy causes, beginning with the ARK movement.

A gift of gratitude just like these below were shared to us:

6 Escape Ideas RedDoorz Provides

It’s that season between vacay-happy Summer and the coming ‘Ber months. Traffic, too much work, piled up tasks and pressure can likely get you down.

There’s one word that will lift you up. Escape. The very thought of it is the ultimate adventure, whether just around the city or in destinations around the Philippines.



According to the still ongoing Framingham Heart Study, men and women who travel often are less likely to get heart disease. It also found that because travel relieves stress, it improves mental health, boosts the immune system and promotes fitness.

The good news is, it’s so easy to travel these days. Affordable hotels with quality accommodations like RedDoorz have 150+ properties in 10+ cities all over the Philippines. The RedDoorz travel app, downloadable from the Apple store or Google Play Store, puts staycations or out of town trips literally at one’s fingertips.



You can escape anytime you want and find an affordable RedDoorz hotel from north to south. Here are 6 Escape ideas you can easily pull off when the spirit moves you:

1.              Do a Staycation. Treat the family to a fun weekend. Or just disappear for a day or two watching streamed movies all day. You can choose from boutique hotels, inns, apartels or condotels that are part of the RedDoorz partner chain. It won’t cost much, but the experience is priceless.

2.              Go Out of Town. You can easily book a room using the RedDoorz app and find your desired accommodation in Baguio, Pampanga, Metro Manila, Tagaytay, Palawan, Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod or  Davao. Just leave the world behind even for just a weekend. Even for just a day.

3.              Try a Couple Getaway. The pressure of work and the day to day grind of housekeeping can really be straining. Grab some time off with your special someone for some peace and quiet and rediscover the joy of each other’s company.

4.              Reward yourself. Pat yourself on the back for that promotion or the exam that you just passed. Celebrate your accomplishments and be kind to No. 1. Effortless travel is the best gift you can give yourself. A weekend in Palawan or Davao would be a really good choice!

5.              Celebrate a Special Occasion. Blow your birthday candles in the private cocoon of a RedDoorz hotel room. Toast one another on your special anniversary. You can even invent holidays and celebrate the victory of your winning team. It all feels extra good when you don’t have to wash the dishes yourself.

6.              Get some Me Time. Ultimately, the most important person is you. Discover the fun and adventure of solo travel and feel relaxed, recharged and rejuvenated.

This August, RedDoorz released its biggest sale ever! Just P499 per night on rooms anywhere in the Philippines till August 31. You can paint the town red in any RedDoorz town you want. 08/14/2019 (Bits of Rocks)
