Big Bad Wolf Books and Glorietta joined forces as part of Ayala Malls’ “BookLat: Open. Imagine. Discover.” initiative, which seeks to provide opportunities for learning and recreation. Derived from the Filipino word “buklat,” “BookLat” highlights reading for leisure and entertainment, offering a wide collection of affordable books for all ages. Ayala Malls encourages customers to donate a book for every purchase to support Ayala Land’s project promoting early childhood literacy. This initiative aims to collect 20,000 books for public school students from kindergarten to grade 3 in Ayala Land Estates and Ayala Malls communities. To kickstart this effort, Big Bad Wolf and Glorietta each donated 1,000 books to the cause. 

Big Bad Wolf co-founder Andrew Yap expressed his unwavering enthusiasm for their mission, stating, “Today, we make another significant step towards our goal of inspiring a new generation of readers.” He added, “Our mission is really to make sure that everyone, regardless of their background, has access to all kinds of books.

“We are always happy to see how enthusiastic people are about books and reading,” said Big Bad Wolf Philippines Managing Partner Carol Chuaying. “Our goal with every book sale extends beyond selling books; it’s about building a community where people can share their love for reading and discover new passions.”

Yap and Chuaying led the opening of the Big Bad Wolf Glorietta Book Sale, which drew book lovers from all over the city. The event also saw the presence of the Ambassador of Malaysia to the Philippines, His Excellency Dato’ Abdul Malik Melvin Castelino; Glorietta General Manager Sherlene Cruz; Ayala Malls Consumer Engagement Head Kharen Pascual; Ayala Malls Operations Head Hamm Katipunan; Metrobank Credit Card General Usage Head Emily Koa; and 2GO Business Unit Head for 2GO Forwarding Francis Anne “Faye” Alonzo Babar.
