SHAMED TO ACTION. We made the “mistake” of making a cabbage farmer named Jay Baltazar expect that we would help. Last year he become bitter with the whole situation of smuggling and lack of buyers, he said he wanted to give up. We said have hope, we shall help you. Months later, we could not. The prices of fuel has increased so much that to get 4 to 5 tons, we need to pay a trucker 45,000 pesos. We waited too long! Fields and field of mature cabbages, 120 tons, are baking right now in the Cagayan sun. The carabaos are let loose to eat them, that is their only use. The messages, the calls and our failure to help has weighed heavily on my mind and heart, that I have started to limp from stress and have a rare migraine. This morning, I called Jerry and said I want to send him 10,000 pesos. No need to give me cabbages. “Tulong namin mag-asawa sa iyo.” HE REFUSED IT. He wants us to use the money to hire a truck and get the cabbages for free. To give to hospitals, to go give to whoever we want to help. I feel so embarrassed right now for wanting to take the easy way out. We have always said that we don’t want to see food wasting—it’s even in the RuRi policies!—but buying our way out of this situation of guilt, we are doing exactly that. Jay is the better man, in all his distress. “Ayaw ko pong masayang ang tanim ko,” this is his pleading. This is pride, a noble kind of pride. I am awed by it. I am shamed by it. Please help me, help us, save the Cabbage farmers of Sto. Nino, Cagayan.

WE WILL GO TO CAGAYAN. This is a Cabbage Rescue Buy. Pay only P220, get 10 kilos of Cabbages. You may keep and enjoy, balatan po ninyo ng konti. You can ask us to donate. Please forgive these cabbages for their imperfection but tayo na lang talaga ang huling pag-asa ng mga repolyo at farmer na ito. God bless you.
