  1. sana palitan nila yun voting. instead of buying tickets to vote for the photos you like, sana each person gets to vote for one photo only.

    Also, to raise funds for the boatmen, they could sell bookmarks or journals printed with the photo entries..instead of selling the tickets for voting.

  2. I totally agree with Ali.

    This is very interesting. Hope I can join. hhhmmmm
