Members of Youth Vote for Leni – Nueva Ecija Chapter have posted about their “Paint the Wall” project wherein they asked private homeowners and business owners if they can paint their fences in pink, Vice President Leni Robredo’s campaign color.

Several photos showed the volunteers painting homes, posts, and business establishments in pink. These are located in Brgy. R. Eugenio, Brgy. Tulat, and Maharlika Highway corner Brgy. Encarnacion in Nueva Ecija, which Robredo recently visited.

“Dumarami na ang mga pader (siyempre private property) na napinturahan #NEYouthVoteforLeni sa iba’t ibang lugar (A lot of walls [of course private property] have been painted by #NEYouthVoteforLeni in different places),” the Facebook page said.

“Muli naming pinasasalamatan ang mga volunteer na patuloy na tumutulong (We want to thank again the volunteers who continue to help)!,” it added.

Kakampink Wednesdays is a weekly initiative designed to raise awareness about Robredo’s candidacy. It was based on the word kakampink, in reference to Robredo’s supporters who initiated the use of color pink when she declared her candidacy in October.

On the eve of this day, the Vice President always posts a “guide” or “challenge” to her supporters and volunteers—from feeding the hungry, reaching out to those heavily impacted by the pandemic, and mending ties with people who have different political beliefs.

Another building owner in Makati City has expressed support for Robredo’s presidential run by adorning the façade of his property with pink lights.

The four-storey building, located at Arnaiz Street in Barangay San Lorenzo, was seen decorated with pink lights.

Before this, a property owner in Makati City along Pasong Tamo illuminated his building with pink lights in support of Robredo’s candidacy.

Earlier, some universities in and outside Metro Manila placed pink lights to decorate their building, among which were Universidad de Sta. Isabel in Naga City, Robredo’s alma mater, and Adamson University.

As part of the Kakampink Wednesday, actresses Agot Isidro and Pinky Amador also met with around 100 mothers and discussed their concerns while partaking hot “lugaw” in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City.

Dubbed as “Kwentuhan with Momshies for Leni”, the event was held at Phase 7B, Pkg. 6, Blk 39, in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City Wednesday morning.

They shared with the mothers their views and concerns over pressing problems of the country and how Robredo plans to solve them.

The mother raised issues such as the lack of health facility and health workers in their community.

“Ang plano ni VP Leni magkaroon ng nurse ang bawat barangay. Walang lugar na maiiwanan, lahat ng Pilipino magkakaroon ng access sa makataong serbisyong pangkalusugan (The plan of VP Leni is to have a nurse for every community. No place will be left behind, all Filipinos will have access to humane health services),” Isidro told them.
