Mahaba-habang kampanya to! ‘Piso para sa laban ni Leni’ nets only P400K
The efforts of several accomplished women to raise money for Vice President Leni Robredo’s electoral protest has failed to reach even half a million pesos at first try.
Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Rina Jimenez David on Friday (July 7) said the “Piso para sa laban ni Leni” campaign managed to raise over P400,000 in its first week.
The campaign is led by Museo Pambata founder Nina Lim-Yuson, and include former Human Rights commissioner and columnist Paulynn Sicam, singer Celeste Legaspi, former Bases Conversion Development Authority board member Zorayda Alonzo, former social welfare secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman, and Ateneo de Manila University Press director Karina Bolasco.
All members of the campaign are awardees of The Outstanding Women in the Nation’s Service (TOWNS).
Robredo needs to raise at least P7.5 million to cover the proceedings of the electoral protest filed against her by former senator Bongbong Marcos.
The deadline for the payment of the multimillion-peso deposit to the Presidential Electoral Tribunal is on July 14.
