I just came back from the AKO MISMO Dog Tag day. Got myself some dog tags. I got dog tags for my pamangkins too who are flying in from Australia next month.
My first pledge as soon as I got my Dog Tags: “AKO MISMO itatapon ang basura ko sa basurahan!”
I just noticed that for many people, they just littered the packaging of their AKO MISMO dog tags right there at the Dog Tag booth.
On the lighter side ;-) …
Booths in the concert area
There was a photo booth where folks can take their photos along-side a backdrop of life-size AKO MISMO endorsers Angel Aquino, Ely Buendia, Luis Manzano, Maxene Magalona et al.
There was a commitment wall for people to write in ink what they pledge to help the country.
One booth had PC’s setup for people to sign-up online for AKO MISMO.
And there were exhibitor booths where people can sign-up for volunteer work, know more about an organization, or buy Pinoy Pride merchandise.
