TARGET A-STUDENTS
Have you ever wondered how many of our young people keep praying that someday their wishes be heard? Now, play an angel to our beloved teenagers and buy these marvelous Tshirts that are made to benefit them. Although public education is free, the 750 pesos miscellaneous fee is still far affordable to many that find making both ends meet difficult. We are planning to assist some 15 students from our barrio earn a bit of penny and cents. Buy the tshirts in bulk and you get these very cheap price of 250 pesos each. That is just a meager 4 dollars, right? If you buy just one piece or two, the price is higher depending on the commission of the student/farmer seller in the booth. If you want to order in bulk, order through me at emilyhomma@yahoo.com

TARGET B- 9 TRAINEE FARMERS
If you have heard and seen the Tribal Farmers working together in summer, you’d say “What a wonderful sight”. They could have had their first grand harvest if not of that cruel and monster typhoon Frank that circled our hills in May. Now they are getting pieces back from devastation and doing rigid training for this cucumber and cherry crops tomatoes. Our barrio will make history soon as supplier of these products in bulk to SM Mall Rosales without competition. Cherry tomatoes are sold by our farmers now in Sagunto (example: Rolly) for 80- 100 pesos per kilo, but SM Mall sells each kilo for 150 pesos. Each peso counts and will affect human life sooner or later. Give our farmers a chance. These 9 Saguntonians who will graduate soon need your trust and funds. Buy these heavenly tshirts, or drop your donation to their officers’ council. My role is make the capital for the tshirts available, so I won’t earn any single cent.

I AM PARTICULARLY AIMING THE PROCEEDS OF THIS TSHIRT SALE PARTLY FOR SEEDLING NEEDS OF THE 9 FARMERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FARMERS’ COURSE IN ROSALES, AND PARTLY TO MY SELECT NEEDY STUDENTS  OF SAGUNTO. Proceeds will be more if you buy tshirts for your friends and relatives as a sign of your support for their good endeavors. I shared some funds to benefit the Sagunto Tribal farmers in April for start-ups ( I pushed them into having a crop project…okay, I’ll send the pictures later), but all those crops were destroyed by the typhoon. That’s just the challenge, but now, they are unstoppable. This new group of 9 will buy seedlings soon for the new round of yummy best-selling crops so that gradually, our barrio income inproves.

BUY the tshirts now! When you wear these heavenly tshirts, you’d be reminded of the people you’ve helped, and the great tribe we all come from. Aren’t the drawings cute? You can request your face and family be the artwork too, if you buy in bulk. ORDER NOW. Send your orders to me at emilyhomma@yahoo.com, pay in Sagunto, COD, (find Rolly at 919-248-7886). List the number/per tshirt, and quantity or your order/tshirt, size S, or M or L or LL. Thank you. Dios Ti Agngina!

    Omar, just please type here or send me your order through my email address emilyhomma@yahoo.com . I read SS 2x a day (actually 20x, 😉 ), and could relay the order number quickly to the manufacturer, Edil.

    We could send you the tshirts through your close relative coming home, or we’ll send all USA orders together in one place, and one volunteer could just send your order on cheaper mail when it arrives in USA. If you want it send separately, you’d have to shoulder the postal expense; the amount depends on the weight of your (bulk) order.

    Payment could be done through Paypal on my account, or COD in Sagunto, C/O Rolly or Edison (Boying) Benosa.

    1.Just say, how many pieces, sizes of what design
    (T-1, T-2,T-3, T-4) in the tshirts order above.
    2. Email me your order, or post here at this page in SS.
    3. I’ll confirm your order, and discuss with you payment details, delivery, etc. Then, payment follows, COD , via Paypal, wire payment, etc. Choose the best payment method for both of us to be able to raise more, and help more. Thank you, Omar. We appreciate your help so much!

    Update:
    There are now 4 tshirts ordered: Ophelia Babot Glasser ordered 4 pcs. This is equivalent to two 100-peso help to 2 HS students, and 3 seedlings subsidy to 2 of the 9 farmers. This looks like the Food Bank system where your purchase matches a particular help to the needy. The more you purchase, the more you help. Arigatou Gozaimasu!

    Delivery of 1 kg. (about 3-4 pcs) tshirts to USA direct to your residence via EMS is 1,200 pesos (24.24 USD), so if you buy 4 pcs. that would be $21 plus shipping of $25 …a total of $46. Isn’t that whole amount cheaper than one Benetton Tshirt? If you order more, I think you could save a lot in shipping charges.
    Order now, thank you Angel Omar!

    any more designs that resembles the view of sagunto. like the welcome arc and uccp church at the “kalsada”, or the view of the turod and palina from the taltalon, or the whole view of sagunto overlooking from the turod (papatayan), or the abong. something that you’re proud of wearing the shirt and you can say ” this is my place”. these shirts shown have excellent designs anyway, however, it doesn’t have the taste that you can tell for sagunto. it’s so general. and a suggestion for the homecoming shirt, how about adding some letters there on the background, like sfal or suka, or saguntostar.com, aussie, canada, jersey, LA, NC… apo kakabsat, i’m not critizising, agibingbingayak lang. kas kunak nagpipintas dagitoy nga souvenir shirt, these are “must haves” for everybody. history daytoy ti sagunto daytoy apo kakadwa, isu uray siak ikur-it mon ton diay order ko dita mng emz. i’l contact you later.

    Ems & Edil, leave my order with any of the San Bernardino folks (Uncle Boying Annaguey, Aunty Irene, the Baiguens, etc.). 🙂 That will save me the $25 S&H fees…isupay nga idonate ti Bago Basketball tournament.

    I am designing my own family logo actually. I cut and pasted my kids’ face pictures with the igorot headdress and costumes. This is Tshirt screening for now. In the future we’ll have electronic printing for all you there guys, hehhe. Nette and Bot, naibus nga dagus dyay 20 plus Los Angeles souvenir tshirts ko. Folks, I tell you, tshirts are one of the best souvenirs or pasalubong to friends. Hot talaga. Okay stateside, we share the same idea. I want some tshirts to be more Sagunto-like so you could be more proud explaining to your friends what each icon means. We’ll work it out overnight. Thanks.

    Thanks Edil. That’s quick. I’ll doodle some ideas and send you later. A good way to capture authentic Sagunto scenery is by taking pictures too. (one funny scene is …agkikinnuto, hakhakhak) but not that one please. Kayat ko dyay agbaybayo ti lubi, agtaltaltag, nakalugan ti nuang, lallakay nga adda silaw ken makoto da nga agpataltalon, etc. Oh, we used to have tabako harvest before too, and our rice planting, iruban, rice harvest, bunton ta taltalon, waig, etc. select a few icons and merge ito one whole drawing, very takented ni albert talaga. for me, medyo abstract ti rumuar, Bliss, isunga, paki retoke na lang nya and mga sketches ko later.

    Hi Edil & Ems,
    Sorry but I told the SAUSA people dyay P250 price that you initially quoted me via email and not clarifying that the colored tees were a bit more. So far I have over a dozen orders today and we collected the funds already…if you say colored, some wanted the black t-shirt, is THAT P300? Someone wanted the white Datu Wag-e multi-colored head, is THAT P300 or P250? I brought the pics from Edil’s multiply and that’s where they chose their designs….please clarify ASAP so we can explain to the others who ordered the black ones tapno haan met a ma-short ni apo VP mi nga nadesignate to pay for the tees when he gets to Sagunto. I will email you the detailed orders w/scanned pics for delivery, ok?
    Thanks guy. Great suggestions state side! 🙂

    Ulp, that’s okay. I’ll include black in “black n white” 250 each na lang, to avoid confusion. So colored means other than black and white. That’s okay Bot. We’ll adjust, as we’re trying to rush too 🙂 . We are happy for the response of our kailians. Agyaman kami apo.

    Dear Kailians, agyaman kami apo ti tulong yo aglalu Tshirt orders nga naited ken dawaten yo pay, ta daytoy ikarkarigatan mi nga i raise ket about 25 thousand pesos for the whole group of Saguntonians for their initial project. So far, with the orders made, we’d have about 1,200 pesos already of funds diverted to these recipients. The nine farmers from Sison (2 from Artacho, one from Bila, and the seven others from Sagunto) are now busy searching for sponsors and investors, but it seems that our Saguntonian farmers are having difficulty finding investors. It is this reason that this Tshirt sale is being strengthened so we all could help even in simple ways. If each of the farmers could not stand alone yet with the burden of finding investors for the 25k php production cost (for each farmer) the whole group of Saguntonians decided to work on one lot for the time being as start-up, so the 25k budget would suffice. After this practicum/trial for the group, after a few months, they should be able to produce on their own their share to fill the quota requirement for all of Sison farmers. This whole production of cucumber and tomatoes will require about 10 hectares of crop lands. So, again, thank you to all who have already helped, and those thinking of ordering soon for all your intentions to support our farmers.
    Emily
