AKO MISMO Dogtag Day


AKO mismo is about YOU making a stand and taking real action for the causes you believe in. Causes that you yourself can truly pursue to make a real, positive difference to your fellow countryman, to your country.

It is for you who still dare to hope that life for millions doesnt have to be a hopeless battle against problems like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment.

It is for you who believe that not enough is being done about our countrys problems. And that to do right things, youll do them yourself.

It is a movement where you can show your patriotism and compassion, and make these traits infectious.

Its about action that eradicates hopelessness in every Filipino.

How hard will this be to accomplish? Well that will be entirely up to you.
In AKO MISMO you get to choose the cause you wish to pursue. No cause is too small as long as it is a noble one. All we ask is that you make a pledge to do it.

You yourself can pledge anything: from teaching English to your yayas kid, to making sure that your barangay is dengue-free.

Or make a pledge to do your part in ending corruption, prostitution, illegal drugs or the inhumane treatment of animals. The choice is yours.

No matter how small, as long as you pledge that you yourself will take action, its sure to make a big difference.

Giving more hope for Filipinos to stop merely surviving, and start living. And it starts with you.

MISMO yan.

-AKO MISMO

Though the official Dogtag day at the Fort ended last June, the organizers thought it would be a nice idea to spread the idea a little more personally to students by organizing “mini” AKO MISMO Dogtag Days. And heck, it was a success!

I’m talking about a recently concluded AKO MISMO Dogtag Day at my little sister’s school somewhere here in Quezon City. There were out-of-tune student bands, Gawad Kalinga video presentations, talks with the students and a “supposed” attendance of  Maxene Magallona. (Supposedly. But,  she did not come. T_T)

Dionisia pala! LOL!

You can also get the much hyped dogtags at the event of course! You just need to register by filling up a Commitment form, get it signed by some administrators (maybe to check it’s authenticity?) and pay Php 40 PLUS a small donation to the Gawad Kalinga Foundation. (which made it more meaningful) Both students and some outsiders flocked the event! Did they come to get dogtags or just hoping to see Maxene Magallona? Uhmm.. I’ll get back to you on that one.

There was also a small booth where they sold shirts of different colors and designs.  Colored designs from Team Manila sold for about Php 300 while black shirts were priced at Php 400. Why the difference in prices? That is beyond me as well.

Here’s what I got:

Ako Mismo Di Pepetiks Sa Trabaho

Ako Mismo Di Pepetiks Sa Trabaho

TRIVIA: What’s funny and awkward about it is that it was my mom who got me this shirt.

Speaking of work, here’a a shoutout to the HR Dept. of my new work:

Give me my work schedule already!!! T_T
