Novuhair Supports Alopecia Areata Awareness in Celebrating Inner Strength

September marks the month-long commemoration of Alopecia Areata awareness worldwide. Alopecia areata is a condition when hair loss occur due to faults in the immune system attacking the hair follicles which results in partial or total loss of hair on the head and other parts of the body.

Leading this year’s celebration in the country is Alopecia Philippines, a group founded by singer and songwriter Abby Asistio in 2012. She has been championing the cause of empowering citizens with this condition.

Abby is no stranger to alopecia, having been diagnosed with alopecia areata since she was four years old. Abby’s decision to come out in public with her condition was a major turning point in her life.
On September 2012, Abby decided to start an online campaign in time with Alopecia Awareness Month by inviting family and friends to pose with the double “A” (inverted “V”) sign using their fingers on the photo sharing site, Instagram. It quickly caught on and Abby was overwhelmed by the response from netizens, with over a thousand photo contributions to date.
This paved the way for the beginnings of Alopecia Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about alopecia and correct common misconceptions and perceptions about it, provide encouragement to people afflicted with it, and create an online support community for them.
Inspired by Abby’s honesty and courage, men and women, kids and teens from different walks of life began sharing their own stories and struggles living with alopecia. What started out as a group of ten is now more than 300 members strong and its Facebook page – Alopecia Areata Awareness, draws followers from all over the world.

LBC cleans name against online attacks by complaining netizen

Social media attacks on the courier and logistics company LBC have gone viral, mostly in OFW Facebook pages. OFWs and their families are some of the most frequent users of courier and door-to-door delivery services in the Philippines. One of such posts came from the account of a certain Ramon Tumpap, an OFW working in a restaurant in Spain. Concerned netizens have come forth with information regarding the true identity of Tumpap. However the motive of his post has been unclear. Tumpap aka Ramon Lobo, used his personal Facebook account to post pictures of volunteer workers sorting through relief boxes in a Taiwan warehouse. An official inquiry was made and it turned out that the photos posted where that of a Taiwanese warehouse, and not LBC's warehouse as alleged by Lobo/Tumpap.

Many netizens were angered and just ended up sharing and resharing Tumpap's post without even vetting the veracity of his claims resulting in the false claim going viral. Of course the photo was not taken from the warehouse of LBC but because pasalubong is an integral part of the Filipino family's love language, may OFWs were incensed despite other OFWs who actually use LBC's services and swear by their good and prompt service. 

As of this writing, Tumpap has since deactivated his Facebook account on the pretense that he is ill and cannot be disturbed, thinking that evading investigators will make it all go away. There is no news or lead as to who may have hired Tumpap to post such online vitriol. 

LBC is the courier of choice of many companies and OFWs families mostly because of LBC's reliable service and brand loyalty resulting from decades of operation in both domestic and international markets. LBC is a Filipino company.
