Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 13) — Presidential candidate Vice President Leni Robredo is mulling to put up a so-called 'pink museum' that will house her supporters' gifts.

In a Facebook live on Thursday, Robredo showcased the numerous gifts she has received from her supporters during the campaign period.

The gifts she showed on screen included customized and handmade bags, crochet dolls, paintings, artworks, souvenirs from different provinces, and even K-pop-inspired Leni items, which all came from the huge "pink movement" her candidacy has initiated.

"Parang expression talaga siya ng pakiramdam na sobrang daming tao na sumama sa'tin sa laban na 'to," Robredo said, pertaining to the gifts from her followers.

In order to put the gifts to "good use," the Vice President bared her plans to build a "pink museum" and to auction some of the gifts to fund her Angat Buhay Projects to help those in dire need, which is the core advocacy for her campaign.

The museum will be located in Naga City and Manila.

Robredo noted that she will ask permission from those who gave the gifts if she can share them with her volunteers.

She and running mate, Senator Kiko Pangilinan, will be holding a thanksgiving event at the Ateneo de Manila University on Friday.

Robredo is currently far second in the latest partial and unofficial May 9 poll results of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) with over 14 million votes.

Her rival, Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr., is taking the lead by a huge margin with over 31 million votes.
