In the video “Bandila” posted on May 3, vice presidential candidate Robredo was asked where her campaign funds are coming from.
Robredo responded: "Marami. Napakarami. Hindi lang sa pamilya, pero napakarami. Siguro, naririnig n'yo naman, napakaraming fundraising ngayon para sa akin." (Several [sources]. A lot [of sources]. Not just from the family, but several others. You have probably heard several fundraising for me.)
"Very creative nga 'yung aking mga volunteer. Kung anu-ano 'yung naiisipan. 'Yung fundraining dinner na for me, siguro mahigit lima at malaki talaga 'yung nakukuha sa mga fundraising dinners,” she added. (My volunteers are very creative. They have several ideas. They organized fundraising dinners for me; probably around five. And fundraising dinners rake in big money.)
"Meron kaming Bike for Leni. Merong ice cream flavor na ipinangalan sa akin at 'yung proceeds, para sa kampanya. Maraming nagpapa-imprenta ng sariling campaign collaterals for me. Merong mga Lugawan for Leni. Kahit anong maisipan, talagang sobrang daming tumutulong," Robredo explained. (We have ‘Bike for Leni’. There is an ice cream flavor named after me and the proceeds flow into the campaign. Several [supporters] also print campaign collaterals for me independently. There is even a rice porridge kiosk, “Lugawan for Leni”. Whatever they think of [they execute], I am really getting a lot of help.)
