Project Donate A Shirt @ GK Bacsil

21 01 2009

A few weeks after I launched the Project Donate A Shoe last year, I started another project where I encouraged runners to donate their Race Finisher’s T-Shirts which I know are just washed and folded in their closets after being used only once. So, I started donating my collection of Race Finisher’s T-Shirts which I dubbed as Project Donate A Shirt. Such shirts had been donated to families residing in Gawad Kalinga Communities in Laoag City—GK Bacsil and GK Talinga-an.

After collecting 50+ pieces of assorted Finisher’s T-Shirts from DelQ in California and from runner-bloggers & members of Team Bald Runner for the past months, I visited GK Bacsil in Laoag City this mornng after a short notice and coordination with Mr Robert De Los Santos, the Project Director. I donated these donated shirts to the wives of the different families residing in the said GK as their husbands were already tending their respective crops and some were already working outside their respective houses.

BR, you’re not only a mere runner but a blessing to those unfortunate people! I admire you for that. I would suggest perhaps after Bataan102, you will come up with a run for a cause. Leo Oracion is coming with his project to help those people in mountain province, at the foot of Mt. Pulag, to help the children in their education. This is just an idea…

I think i have some finisher tshirts to be donated…
