Shirt for Love

I love to paint. I love making T-shirt designs. I love positive words. These are the things that inspired me to come up with this site. At first, it was just for self-gratification. That’s why, it took me years to finally publish and present this to the world.

I am a survivor of the monstrous typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). No drama. It’s been 3 months already. The hype has slowly cooled down. The media seldom talk about it now. However, the real battle has just begun…

I want to help. I am desperate to help. But how? I can’t just drop my responsibilities and my job to go on a mission. Some people can do that. I don’t know how they do that, but I think there’s a better way without making such a drastic move, without quitting my job.

Why not do something that I love? I love to sing! Hmmm… I can join The Voice of the Philippines on TV? If I win, I can donate the money to build some houses in Leyte. What if I don’t win? I know I have a good voice… (Ahem) But what if my voice is not good enough to win, even if I did my best… Just once! I’d end up being a joke and jobless and perhaps gravely desperate.

During my spare time, I paint and I write stuff for my blogs. I believe they’re God’s gift. I believe God planted them in my soul because I feel joy doing them. I learned that the best way to utilize our gifts is to share them to others. They’re not for selfish reasons. They are for a purpose. I remember the Parable of the Talents. The Master entrusted to his 3 servants his property. The first two servants invested them and gained some more, while the third servant hid his share under the ground because he was afraid of losing it. In the end, the Master blessed the two servants with even more, while the third man received nothing. I don’t want to be like the third man.

I love to paint. I love making T-shirt designs. And I love to write. Now, I can combine all of them for a purpose!

50% of the proceeds of this project will be donated to my Toastmasters friends in Leyte. A lot of them are still roofless or homeless. I am hoping, this way I could somehow help if not all of them, at least some of them.

More designs will be posted at
