The SUPERSCALE and MIMAW team would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported our ‘Bayanihan Pins’ fund raising project. On November 28 2013, we launched the project after a week of swift and intense planning in light of the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in the Philippines and with your help we were able to raise AUD$950 equivalent to nearly ₱38300 donated to RED CROSS AUSTRALIA in time for 2013 Christmas!
To help the victims of one of the strongest storms ever recorded to hit the Philippines, we are raised funds to donate to the Red Cross for Christmas through the potentials of open-source design and 3d printing. Instead of giving a one-off donation, we hope this small project will create a ripple and amplify our intentions a hundred fold.
We love pins! In light of this disaster, we have designed a pin that celebrates the Filipino word, “bayanihan” referring to the unified spirit and actions of the community to achieve a specific goal. The origins of “bayanihan” can be traced from the traditions of Philippine towns, where the community will help a family relocate to a new place by transporting their house to a new location. This is achieved by placing bamboo poles under the house where volunteers from the community will then literally carry the house to a new location.
