Tomorrow’s event has a new venue because the first one was sold out! Lined up another event in NY! @lanewilcken and I wanted to have a free community event for those that cannot go to the FANHS 16th National Conference. Thanks to @unipronow for setting it up. #baybayin #prefilipino #filipinotattoos #nyc #fanhs2016 (at 594 Broadway, NY 10012)

I teamed up with @afterelevenapparel for this benefit shirt available at afterelevenapparel.com
“We got together with Philippine #calligraphy artist & lecturer, Kristian Kabuay, to create a disaster relief tee shirt to benefit those affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan.
The design features the word, Lakas -meaning strength in Tagalog - written in the #prefilipino script, #Baybayin (incorrectly known as #Alibata)., by Kristian Kabuay.
The Lakas Tee will be for sale throughout the month of November.
ALL of the proceeds from the sale of this disaster relief tee shirt will be donated to non-profit, Waves for Water, who is currently on the ground in the Philippines installing water filtration systems to provide clean water to those affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. Their first visit will supply water for up to 30,000 people in affected area.
With 1,000,000 people left without water in the #Philippines, we will be able to provide clean water for 100+ people with every 2 shirts sold.
We appreciate your support.” (at Kabuay.com)
