Be Part of Olympics 2012: Donate Part of Your Shirt

July 2, 2012

I am sure everyone of us wants to be part of the 2012 Olympics. You don’t need to be an athlete to be able to join and be part of the team. All you need to do is to give them a piece of your shirt, and I really mean a piece!

I missed the event launch last Sunday because I came home late from our Sports Fest/Teambuilding.

Ariel invited the public to go to the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall last Sunday, June 24th, for the opportunity to give a piece of their shirt to help create the Philippine flag—a gift to our athletes, to bring with them as they compete in London. The colors are sure to remain vibrant, especially when the athletes wave the flag proudly for all the world to see. Thanks to Ariel Color and Style. Imagine, part of your shirt would be in the Philippine Flag? Awesome!

I could imagine that people came in the hundreds in their red, yellow, blue, and white shirts. Assistants cut a uniform square piece from each of the shirts, and gave donors the option to cover the square with a patch stating, “Ariel: Proud Keeper of the Philippines’ Colors”. Each patch cost only P50, and all proceeds were also donated to the Philippine athletes. Too bad I missed this chance. I was hoping to bring our whole team to donate our shirts. Especially that we also have team colors during our team building.

The campaign launch introduced the Philippine Olympic athletes Hidilyn Diaz, Jasmine Alkhaldi, Rene Herrera, and Jessie Lacuna to the audience, and they gave a piece of their own shirts as well. Everyone was also treated to entertainment by Escola de Samba de Manila and 6CycleMind.

If you were not able to drop by the event last Sunday (like me), collection of your shirt pieces is still on-going at Metropole Laundry and Dry Cleaning outlets, and Team Manila stores up to July 2, 2012 (TODAY!!!). The replacement Proud Keeper patches are also available for P50, and Team Manila also has special edition t-shirts for sale. Proceeds of all patches and t-shirts sold go to the Philippine Olympians.
