Calel’s Wacky Art Shirts: Spreading Autism Awareness, 1 Shirt at a Time

Autism is commonly heard, however, there are several speculations about Autism and of the people affected by it. In the Philippines, it is estimated that there are around 1 million people living with Autism, yet not everybody can understand what it it’s like. The Autism Spectrum Disorder is a condition where a person who is diagnosed with it will not have the same experiences but are noticed by the core symptoms.

Meet Calel, he is a 6-year old who was diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) at the age of four. A year ago, he discovered his love for animals and drawing and once he starts on a sketch pad he just cannot stop – his mother Marie, started posting his artwork on Facebook, when a friend commented that if in the case the drawing is produced to be printed on a t-shirt – he definitely would buy. After a few months, Marie launched Calel’s Wacky Art Shirts for 3 reasons: to help with Calel’s therapy needs, to develop the business to eventually be taken over by Calel (when he gets older) and to spread Autism awareness.

Occupational and Speech therapy is costly. Also, there are limited specialists in the Philippines. Kids with ASD need to attend SPED (Special Education) classes which can cost up to Php60,000 a year. For every shirt purchased, this will help Calel’s parents to make sure he gets the special treatments he needs.Calel’s future is still unclear at the age of 6, he shows signs of progress but it is hard to tell if he will be able to live a normal life or yet alone become employed. If Calel’s Wacky Art Shirts becomes a success, this may become his own business to handle. With the first batch of t-shirts printed and distributed, people that ordered have started to ask about Calel and his condition. This helped Marie talk about Autism and educate people on what their family experience day-to-day including the highs and lows.There are so many designs to choose from Calel’s Wacky Art Shirts and each is unique which you will surely love. T-shirt’s come in kids, men and women’s sizes.
Calel’s Wacky Art Shirts are being offered at introductory prizes for the first 100 customers. Please visit their Instagram account for updates and designs: calelswackyartshirts
You may help Calel by purchasing a shirt through their Shopee account: mamaneesshop
They are also accepting donations for art materials like sketch pads, crayons, colored pencils and pens.

iFern Entrepreneurship

An Aunt who has the heart of an entrepreneur, just like my Mama, invited me in a small talk and presentation of the new business she ventured. Attendees were introduced to iFern. Tommanny Tan, President and CEO, is the man behind of it all. He is also a mentor or called “Kapatid” in the Go Negosyo and Department of Trade and Industry’s Kapatid: Mentor ME (Micro Entrepreneur) Program. iFern is FERN’s international Network Marketing wing is on the rise and has penetrated the network marketing industry with the launch of world-class quality products such as Fern-D and Fern Active.

Fern-D (Image from i-fern website)

Fern-D is a brand name for Vitamin D3 or the generic name Cholecalciferol. An affordable and clinically-proven Vitamin D supplement. Study shows that a person with enough or with high levels of vitamin D has lower risks on having diseases like muscle weakness, tuberculosis, diabetes and a few more.

Fern-Activ (Image from i-fern website)

Fern-Activ on the other hand is packed with B-vitamins and also contains non-acidic vitamin C for improved immunity, Zinc for energy and vitamin D for stronger muscles.

Personally, I was drawn into the health benefits of the said Fern-D and Fern Activ but big yes to the Aurora soap and lotion.

Aurora (Image from i-fern website)

Aurora beauty bar has three age-defying ingredients which are Argan Oil, Swiss Apple Stem Cell and Aloe Vera. It is so fragrant too and said to help prevent mosquito bites. Aurora Beauty Bar leaves skin whiter, smoother, lighter and moisturized. It also helps diminish age spots, hyper-pigmentation, Melasma and  the very common skin problem, acne.

My aunt, a senior citizen who doesn’t look like one in fact, is already a distributor since September last year and has personally proved the health benefits of Fern-D and Aurora Beauty Bar on her. Aside from the speaker, there were also other entrepreneurs my aunt has invited to give more details on the marketing side of the company. So, when I got home, I have Fern-D, Fern-Active, Aurora Beauty Bar and Aurora Hand and Body Lotion. I got invited too to venture in the iFern entrepreneurship opportunity they have but will have to test these products myself first and then decide if I have to also join or just help my Aunt in her business. After a month of usage, I will sure make another review post about these new products she introduced me to.

Bloated Battery: Cherry Mobile Flare S100

My Cherry Mobile Flare (mobile phone) was only bought just last year but I have to let it rest for now.

First, I had issues with its battery charger after t’was used for another phone by a nephew. So, I decided to stop using it to avoid damaging my phone itself and ended up using another phone’s battery charger, a Samsung cellphone charger. What a bad move it was! I was so worried damaging my phone that I failed to take care of its battery. I feel bad, and I honestly feel stupid too. I was so into the benefit of having a phone camera to use and eager about joining IG photo a day challenges that I did not even notice that my Flare’s battery wouldn’t last  for at least 4 hours anymore. I have been reprimanding my elder daughter because of her habit of using my phone while being recharged that I too have been damaging its battery in another way – using the wrong charger!

Yes, I am fully responsible for its damage. It came to a point where the phone (while in the middle of a text message or status update) will just shut off even if it shows that it was fully charged. And a point  that I need to recharge the phone every hour. That actually scared me. I should have purchased a new charger. Now, I HAVE to purchase a charger and a battery replacement. My Cherry Mobile Flare S100 is at rest because its battery is bloated! I removed the battery immediately when I found out, I didn’t want to have to get a new phone yet, that is!

Bloated battery is not new to me, to my phone, it is. My Nikon S2500 digital camera’s battery is bloated too. I left it on charge overnight. Well, not really me. It did not really need recharging but my curious little girl Roey connected its charger thinking it needed it just because she cannot turn it on. Talk about determination and curiosity!

 

Here are some reasons that damages a battery:

1. Overcharging the device.

2. Using the device while being recharged.

3. Using the wrong charger. It is really important to READ.

 

These will definitely damage a mobile device’s battery. Worst, blow it!

So, as soon as I get a new battery and charger, I know what to do – lesson learned eh?!

Let My Jinga Juice Bring Out Your Youthful Glow!

Do you ever have skin problems? Eczema, acne and Psoriasis, to name a few. Do your kids or someone you know suffer from itchiness and discomfort these irritations bring?

Most of us do or did have to go through irritations like these and we have to resort using expensive topical creams or maybe dermatological remedies. A lot did not know that Guyabano (Soursop) and Wheatgrass can help – clean, safe and healthy!

My JINGA JUICE is made from Guyabano (the whole fruit and its seeds) and Wheatgrass…the first of its kind in the market. There were reports that Guyabano seeds and leaves were used as skin astringent, used to treat headlice and even to purge bed bugs too! While Wheatgrass effectively reduces wound, acne and acute rashes’ pain, swelling and inflammation. It is also being used to treat burns and insect bites.

So, stay healthy and prevent illnesses! With balanced diet, take Jinga Juice regularly, be energized and bring out that youthful glow in you!

Why we highly recommend Jinga Juice?

jinga juice

Thought you’d never ask!

WHEATGRASS alone is a powerful detoxifier and bloodstream protector. It restores alkalinity to the blood and can double your red blood cell count. Wheatgrass is perfect as it contains Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.

GUYABANO on the other hand, is an effective help to lower high blood pressure. It is also used for depression, stress and nervous disorders. In addition, it is highly effective against internal parasites and worms.

Perfect for kids! Jinga Juice is something they would surely enjoy!
Now you know!
