Switchfoot starts campaign for kids with disabilities, to return to PH in April

Switchoot has started a campaign that encourages people to donate to CURE hospitals to help heal kids with disabilities.

CURE is “a non-profit organization that operates charitable hospitals and programs in 29 countries worldwide where patients experience the life-changing message of God’s love for them, receiving surgical treatment regardless of gender, religion, or ethnicity.”

For this particular campaign, when people donate they will get the chance to win an all-expense-paid trip for two to the Philippines and pay a visit to the Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City with Switchfoot in April.

Plus, they’ll also get to see the band live in concert.

I asked Church Simplified director Bebo Bharwani when Switchfoot will perform and he told me they’ll play on April 16 (Easter Sunday) at BGC for their “Walkway” exhibit again.

The band, he added, will make a visit to Davao City on April 17 and 18. They’ll also drop by Cebu at the Ayala Center on April 19.

Switchfoot was last seen in Manila during Holy Week last year where they performed some of their most popular hits, such as “Dare You To Move,” “Meant To Live,” and “Only Hope.”

It was a memorable experience, we were given a few minutes to talk to the band and ask them questions. We even got to take a photo with them before the show.

During their PH stay, the American alternative rock band also shot the music video of “Float” in Tondo, an ode to Jerome Fontamillas — Switchfoot’s keyboardist and lone Filipino member.


Switchfoot’s latest album is Where the Light Shines Through. Aside from “Float,” other singles released from that album is “Live it Well” and “I Won’t Let You Go.”
