Pang international! Kit Nieto’s sneaker auction featured on Japan’s NHK
Even the Japanese are now aware of why Cainta, Rizal Mayor Kit Nieto auctioned off his pricey sneakers, thanks to a feature aired by NHK Japan.
In a Facebook post, Nieto shared that his story was among the three features aired by NHK recently about the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Someone sent me this, just now… NHK Japan to feature Three stories about the covid 19 pandemic. Yung isa tungkol sa isang single mom na nakatira sa Mongolia.. Yung isa tungkol sa mag anak na dukha na taga Bangkok, Thailand.. Tas yung isa, yung simpleng kwento natin sa Cainta,” he said.
Nieto raised over P1 million while Luzon was under lockdown from March to May by auctioning off pairs from his collection of limited edition sneakers.
The money was used to provide additional assistance to Cainta residents affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
