Reminding everyone this coming Saturday in Caloocan City...
This is an Ilocano word which means "the first ray of the rising sun". Hearing Marlon speak of his works and his group, his passion for his roots and culture is very much palpable in his every word. From his works, his talent can't be denied and his love to reach and help all the unprivileged Filipinos in our society.
On his Project Alinaga:
Isang pagpapasalamat sa isang taong biyaya at pagbabahagi sa kapwa habang papalapit ang Pasko.
Isa ring layunin nito ay ang maipamulat sa mga kabataan at sa mga sasama sa mga projecto ang kagandahan ng isang buhay maging ito man ay may kapansanan, matatanda at mga batang kalye na pinabayaan ng magulang.
According to Marlon, Project Alinaga is to show awareness to the youth and for those volunteers to see the beauty of one's life regardless of special conditions, old age and for the street kids who were neglected by their parents.
Music and arts
For this Saturday, there will be 80 special kids in attendance with 10 special education teachers and about 22 volunteers. Thankfully for the great number of volunteers, this lessen the number of kids per each group, so as attention can be given fully.
Lunch and snacks will be provided this Saturday. And all kids will be gifted with coloring books and crayons at the end of the session.

ALINAGA. Like the first ray of the rising sun, it is meant to inspire and give HOPE to those unloved and unprivileged people in our society.
