It Wasn't Us.

Some of you may be steaming at the spam you got, seemingly from NEW Bayanihan. It wasn't sent by us the from and return-to e-mail addresses provided are SPOOFED!

I have discovered some similarities in the headers of the original message (I have had 40+ messages bounced and they all get forwarded to my e-mail account as I have my e-mail setup as the "catch-all" address. They are trying to return those messages to a non-existent NEW Bayanihan e-mail account) and they point to a well known source of spam.

NEW Bayanihan does not spam, nor condone spam!

The National Federation of Filipino American Associations has taken a stand on immigration. Its pretty standard and expected with the one exception being a call for better border control.

We have been approached to join NAFFAA and I am not certain if this is something I want to sign up with. Those who know me know I am very outspoken about my political beliefs and my philosophy of government. However, the NEW Bayanihan mission is apolitical in the sense that I do not want to use NEW Bayanihan to promote positions that require governmental lobbying. That is, I do not feel it is proper for NEW Bayanihan to take stand other than to say we obey and urge all others to obey our laws. I would feel wrong about having NEW Bayanihan take an explicit stand on immigration or any other political topic.

When I described my vision of NEW Bayanihan to a friend of a friend she immediately urged me to form a political arm, organized separately to lobby the government. Hehehe, I think she thought I was on her and my friends side (I am decidedly opposed to their political views but you know what they say about politics and religion) of the political debate. I resist even that, as potential volunteers and contributors may not realize the technical differences or the differences may not be great enough for them to overcome views perhaps contrary to theirs.

Congratulations Liz Thomas!

NEW Bayanihan sends its congratulations to Liz Thomas on the grand opening of her store Plaza Philippine Store in Appleton Wisconsin (the link is a map).

The Empress and myself were just there and some of the Philippino treats I have been looking for were there. If you live in the Fox Valley and are looking for a store in the area with hard to find Philippno foodstuffs give the Plaza Philippines Store a try!

Bus Trip!

NEW Bayanihan is proud to announce its latest upcoming event. The NEW Bayanihan Spring Bus Trip to Chicago! NEW Bayanihan, is going to sponsor a bus trip to Chicago Illinois on Saturday May 13th.

The destination will be Chicago's Chinatown and the northside Uni-Mart. Cost is $20.00/seat and the bus will leave Appleton's Fox Valley Mall at 7:00am sharp on Saturday May 13 and will stop at the Miles Kimball Outlet in Oshkosh to pick up riders at 7:30am on Saturday May 13.

We plan to be back home at around 8:00pm.

Remember, at the Uni-Mart you can find those hard to find Philippino grocery items, we will arrange a pickup with Fiesta Cargo (Balikbayan boxes), and you can take care of other business such banking with the Philippine National Bank.

See NEW Bayanihan's events page for more information.
