My Red Ondoy Shirt Story

Wednesday, September 07, 2011 Alexis Mendoza 0 Comments

Everyone of us has this one piece of clothing we treasure and keep inside our closet. One that made us smile or even cry once in our life, or just a simple gift from an important person. Its a treasure not comparable with any money in the world.
Mine is this Red Hoodie Shirt
Its is my most memorable shirt because this is the shirt I wore on the first day of my volunteering for Typhoon Ondoy Relief Operations. A day after typhoon slashed Luzon, I volunteered to Operation Tulong Bayan in Quezon City to become one of their packers and relief distributor to the Ondoy Affected areas.


I did not only wore it because it comfortable, I also wore it because It grabs attention fast, thats why I didnt have a time striking a conversation with my co-volunteers because of my funny statement shirt.
This is actually INSIDE A MOVING TRUCK after our relief operations in Laguna.
It was a tiring but fulfilling day volunteering but the feeling that you helped your kababayans is one reason why all the efforts we did packing, travelling (and when I say travelling, its travelling all the way to Laguna inside a closed truck!) and distributing the relief packs to the people affected by Typhoon Ondoy.

Even our house was flooded because of Ondoy but that alone pushed me to volunteer not only for a day but for the following days as well because I know the feeling of people affected by the Typhoon and I know that although our relief goods will only last for a couple of days, it'll bring some hope & smile to our Kababayan's.

I will be Donating this shirt to the Electrolux Wash-athon clothes donation Project because I know that it will help one of our kababayan's affected by Calamities in the Country. This single shirt will go a long way especially if we all work together and donate a single shirt to help our brothers in need.

Here is my short video pledging my shirt for the

I LOVE THIS SHIRT, NOW I WANT SOMEONE ELSE TO LOVE IT TOO!
I SUPPORT THE ELECTROLUX WASH-ATHON CLOTHES DONATION ADVOCACY!
