Cainta mayor auctions off sneakers to augment COVID-19 funds for constituents




Another out of the box idea from the next generation politicians of the country.

All of his prized shoes collections are now being auctioned in order to raise much needed funds for his constituents. This is the selfless act of Cainta Mayor Johnielle Keith Pasion Nieto.


In his Facebook post Nieto notes that of the 320,000 residents in the municipality, only more than 37,000 were given social amelioration cards to receive financial assistance from the national government.

According to Nieto, Cainta has no sufficient funds to provide cash subsidy to all families not covered by the social amelioration program.

“Naisip kong mag-auction ng ilang gamit ko tas ‘yung proceeds bigay ko sa mga hindi na cover.. makatulong kahit paano..Start ko sa 3 kong rubber shoes,” he said, showing photos of three pairs of his Nike rubber shoes in his Facebook post.

(I thought about setting up an auction for some of my personal items then the proceeds will be given to those who were not covered [by the social amelioration program] so that I can help somehow. I’ll start with these three rubber shoes.)


The shoes were being auctioned at base prices of P13,000, P30,000, and P10,000.

“Araw araw hanggang matapos ang quarantine, mag auction ako ng 3 pares hanggang maubos ang virus o maubos ang koleksyon ko [Everyday until the quarantine ends, I will auction off three pairs until either the virus or my collection is gone],” he said
