Celebrities such as Jodi Sta. Maria and other prominent personalities who supported the candidacy of former Vice President Leni Robredo took to social media to thank the Robredo daughters for the tokens of appreciation they received from them.
In a tweet, the actress thanked the Robredo sisters for the pin she received from them.
“Magandang umaga. (Good morning.) I’ve got mail. Thank you @aikarobredo @jpgrobredo and @jillrobredo. Hello po Mama @lenirobredo,” Sta. Maria said.
TikTok content creator Arshie Larga also shared on his Twitter account a picture of the pin and thanked the Robredos, with Tricia Robredo thanking him for his support to the former Vice President’s presidential campaign.
“Maraming salamat din po sa inyo, Arshie! Big fan of your content! Learning a lot from you. Sobrang idol,” Tricia replied to Larga’s tweet.
(Thanks to you too, Arshie! I’m a big fan of your content. Learning a lot from you, idol.)
Host and singer Deniel Climber Torres also tweeted receiving the token.
“Thank you @aikarobredo, @jillrobredo, and @jpgrobredo,” he said with a pink heart and flower emoji, the signature color of the Leni Robredo - Kiko Pangilinan campaign.
The pin was created by another Robredo supporter, Rico Diamat.
“Sa ngalan ni Mama Leni at lahat ng bumubuo ng ating People’s Campaign: Maraming, maraming salamat po sa walang-sawang suporta ninyo sa laban nating ito,” part of the token’s note read.
(In the name of our mother, Leni, and the People’s Campaign: We thank you for your unwavering support on this fight.)
“Ang mga Pilipinong kagaya mo ang tunay na lakas ng ating kampanya – nag-aambagan para sa ikaaangat ng lahat; nagbabayanihan para sa kolektibo nating kinabukasan; pinagbibigkis ng iisang pangarap para sa isang pamumunong matino, mahusay, matapat at makatao,” it added.
(Filipinos like you are the true strength of our campaign – lifting each other up in times of need; helping each other for our future; we are enjoined by the ultimate dream of a kind of leadership that is dependable, excellent, faithful and humane.)
“Dahil kasama ka naming lumalaban araw-araw, tiwala kami: Kayang-kaya nating maabot kahit ang pinakamatayog nating mga pangarap. Muli, maraming salamat at mabuhay po kayo!” the note further read.
(And because you have been with us in the fight every single day, we are sure that together, we can achieve our dreams. Again, thank you and long live!)
The Robredo-Pangilinan campaign inspired a grassroots movement of volunteerism and civic engagement aimed at helping each other, with supporters from the creative industry freely offering their talent for the campaign.
