Together in YouTube Clip below, Aral Pinoy Founder Antonio Ingles, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao (who will wear a yellow gloves to) fight poverty!
Chino Trinidad was able to interview Manny Pacquiao last Thursday on News to Go and Pacman said that he chose the color yellow “to signify the unity of the Filipino people across the globe.” “Boxing is not the biggest fight of my life, eradicating poverty is now the biggest fight of my life,” Manny said.
On the one hand, in the video clip Manny is already using YELLOW TOWEL as 2009 CNN Hero Efren Peñaflorida, Jr. is saying in his Facebook Wall: "Wearing YELLOW is a commitment to help the poor win against poverty! It's not about politics or charity. It is about lifting up the spirits of the downtrodden and showing them the way to hope once more and win this time around!"
On the other hand, we fight to end poverty by making it history... but the word 'fight' is very much associated with violence and we don't want to insinuate nor imply that violence is acceptable to end poverty! Borrowing the words of Albert Einstein: "Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison [of greed] by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." So instead of fight we ought to FREE ourselves from this prison and enslavement of poverty! FREE Ourselves from GREED to End Poverty and make it history by providing access to life for those who have less in life. We in our own little way starts it in Bacao Project in Nueva Ecija. It is not just about tree planting. It is a community self-sustaining effort to live within the means out of mother nature can offer; it is also a place of prayer and of ecology education center for teachers, students and all those who have love for and will love ecology. It is where poverty will be history!
