Long before the launch of their foundation Little Blue Chair in August 2022, Charlie and China Cojuangco had been consistently extending their blessings to the disadvantaged.

Despite Charlie's passing in February 2022, his legacy of generosity and kindness lives on in Little Blue Chair, which has expanded its reach and broadened the type of support it provides, now that it has been a year since it was founded.

Partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGO) were forged, one of which is with the UGAT Lucena Association.

“Our organization is very grateful [to Little Blue Chair] for helping us fund 250 school chairs that will be donated to the Lucena National High School - Silangang Mayao campus,” says Alfred Lavarro, corporate secretary.

“The initiative by both organizations will truly make an impact in the learning and growth of the students,” he adds.

Mirasol Outreach Foundation is another NGO that received assistance from the Little Blue Chair, for their Share-a-Joy and Balik Eskwela programs.

Little Blue Chair also made church renovations possible. Thanks to their donation, the dome of the San Santiago Apostol Parish Church in Paete, Laguna was repaired.

“Sa katandaan po ng simbahan namin ay talagang malaki na po ang sira at hindi nag-atubili ang Little Blue Chair na magpadala ng kanilang tulong pinansyal para maisaayos ang aming bubong ng simbahan,” relates Bro. John Joven Calipe, Parish Pastoral Council Moderator.

Individuals were also helped by the organization.

Among some of the beneficiaries were DepEd Bataan’s guidance counselor, Joan Gerio and Enrique Zolina of South Cotabato. Both are deeply grateful for Little Blue Chair’s support for their education and career.

Maritess, an OFW, also sends appreciation to Little Blue Chair for her employment in Oman.


“They helped me financially. And when I was finally able to get a job, they also helped me with the accommodations. Thank you very much and hopefully, Little Blue Chair will be able to help more people,” details Adrian Sarmiento, a person with disability based in Bulacan.

Representative Mark Cojuangco, the family patriarch and brother of Charlie, lauds the Little Blue Chair on its first anniversary.

He says, “I’m so grateful to China who is trying her best to keep my brother’s memory alive.

"I understand that this charity, this philanthropy gives to underprivileged children and communities. You provide chairs for public schools, food for feeding programs, you support sports programs, you provide funds for church restorations, women’s correctional programs and the like.

"Ako naman, I’m trying to keep my brother’s memory alive through supporting football, by introducing the Carlos Cojuangco Memorial Football Club.”


The organization has had a very productive and fulfilling first year, but recognizes that there is more work to be done. The Little Blue Chair is steadfast in its commitment to philanthropy and continues its efforts to make a difference in people’s lives.
