Tiger Kraft Energy Biscuit gives out to kids of Hospicio de San Jose a Electro-Generating Playground

Christmas is really all about giving and sharing! And what a way to give back to our less fortunate brothers and sisters from HOSPICIO de SAN JOSE is KRAFT TIGER ENERGY biscuit’ donation of TIGER ENERGY PLAYGROUND.

This is how the play ground of Hospicio de San Jose looks like before.

And this project would not be possible with the support of students from MAPUA Institute of Technology  (Electrical Engineering Department.). Sharing their knowledge in innovating our well-loved play ground amenties like the see-saw and merry-go-round.

The technology here is to to make the equipment convert the energy created by the kids’ while playing into electrical energy that can be used in the Hospicio compound. In short, every bit of energy that kids exert can be turned by the equipment into electricity to light lamp posts and other appliances.

Initial tests have shown that the Tiger Energy Playground can store up to 36 hours worth of power for every 24 hours of play.
Kraft Foods Category Marketing Manager for Biscuits, Carlo Licuanan said, “We chose to donate the Tiger Energy Playground to Hospicio de San Jose to remind the children here that they have not been forgotten this Christmas, and that there is reason for them to be hopeful for a bright future. Hopefully soon, the Playground will also be able to help Hospicio in its operations, by helping provide part of its power consumption so that their monthly electricity bill can be reduced.”

Isn’t that amazing? Donating something that will work long-term, right?
Anyways, I am very honored to be invited to its launched. I never thought that the launch will be as exciting as these.
