Weekly Updates

Hey everyone! September just flew by like nothing, huh? It is now October, which means that it’s time to celebrate Pilipino American History Month. Our culture is very important, and this month would be a perfect opportunity for all of you to learn about Pilipino history, current events, and even more. Akbayan has a lot planned for all of you for this special month, so let’s begin!

Every week of the month, the Akbayan table will have a different theme that include activities, which will help all of you learn about different aspects of the Pilipino culture. What we ask the members to do is come by the table and participate in these small activities that will help you learn little facts related to the Pilipinos. Members will have to check in with us, and if any of you members come out to the table 2 out of the 4 days during the week, you will get a surprise prize at the end!

* OCTOBER 5-8,2009: This week will be all about Pilipino Entertainment. You will all get to learn small facts about famous past and present Pilipino entertainers, movies, music, and other things pertaining to this theme

Had fun at the first general meeting two weeks ago? Well, there will be an upcoming one this week, and be prepared to learn about things you probably don’t even know about!

* Time: 4:30PM-6:00PM
* Location: TBA

If you didn’t already know, KAAMP revealing week has been postponed to next week. So, adings you will not be able to find out who your Kuya/Ates are until then.

We are still taking donations (clothes, shoes, blankets, monetary, etc) at the Akbayan table. There are many options of how we’re going to get all these donations to the Philippines, and currently Akbayan is teaming up with 1801 (http://www.myspace.com/1801ministires) to make all of this happen. We appreciate all of those that have already donated to this cause, and please keep them coming. This is a great opportunity for you to help out those affected by this disaster back home. Thank you.

Hope you all have a great week!!!
