Kaya Natin! Shirts

Got this email last November 9:

'Dear Friends,

Good morning! 
Please give me two minutes of your precious time. 
During the last Transparency International Corruption Index, our country ranked 134th out of 178 countries. The Philippines was lumped together in terms of corruption in our government with countries like Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Togo and Bangladesh. More recently, the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation's Doing Business Survey for 2011 showed that our country ranked 148th out of 183 countries in terms of the ease of setting up and running a business here. Sadly, it was our Asian neighbors such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand and Malaysia which ranked within the top 20 of this same survey. One major reason why we ranked this low is the continued prevalence of graft and corruption in our national and local government institutions.

If there is one thing that is clear, the work of good governance is still far from over. Even if we have elected a President who is known to promote and implement anti-corruption measures, we have to realize that he cannot do it alone. We all need to chip in and do our own share of ensuring that we have better leaders in our government who will always practice good governance and leadership with integrity.

As such, the Kaya Natin! Movement for Good Governance and Ethical Leadership, a national movement initially convened by the Ateneo School of Government together with known good governance advocates' Among Ed Panlilio, Grace Padaca and DILG Sec. Jesse Robredo invites you to support our advocacy by volunteering your time or by supporting any of our products which you can also share as Christmas gifts to your friends and families:

a.) Goodies for Good Governance Brownies - P 195.00 per box
b.) Kaya Natin! Book about Inspiring stories of Good Governance and Ethical Leadership - P 295.00 per copy
c.) Pasyonista Shirts: Fashion for Filipinos with a Passion for serving our Nation - P 350.00 per shirt

Proceeds from the sales of these products will allow us to bring our Caravan of Good Governance to more colleges and universities that will inspire more young Filipinos to believe that Good Governance is still very much possible in our country. 

If you would like to volunteer or order any of these products, please get in touch with Wendell Balderas at (02) 433-1440 or you can send an email to .

We hope that you will join us in this journey of good governance for our nation. Please feel free to pass along this email to your friends and help us in spreading the good news about good governance in our country.

Thank you very much for sharing your two minutes with us. May you have a pleasant week ahead!


Warm Regards,

I asked Kristin for the shirt material, but she did not reply.

I just bought an icanserve shirt at Power Plant last month.  It cost P 550 but the material was very nice, thin, soft, cool enough for badminton, I think.  The L I got was too big, though, so I hope to exchange it for a M.

A few days before their bazaar last weekend, she sent me an email about it but I only saw it this week as I was busy taking out my balikbayan friends JK and BKB.

It was such a pity because my balikbayan friends and I were in Makati last Saturday and we could have gone to the bazaar.  My friends had never been to Rockwell.  I don't know anything there that would be of interest to them, except for Via Mare, which has branches in Greenbelt and Bonifacio Global City.

I advised her to send out her emails like a month in advance when my balikbayan friends and I were planning our itinerary.

My friends bought 7 Collezione map shirts.

Lately, I saw a Pinoy Lab ad and the design looked way more interesting, though younger, bigger than the Collezione map shirts.

For sizing, it would be best to have a size guide much like what Fitz Villafuerte has.  If I recall correctly, he included the shoulder, waist and hip dimensions.
