Christian Panaligan grew up an immigrant in a poor neighborhood, and as a medical-surgical nurse at Sutter Delta Medical Center in Contra Costa County, has helped a lot of children. But he wanted to do more to help kids in need, and had witnessed the power and popularity of wristbands for various causes. Why not make that wrist wear more functional, he thought?

So he came up with a colorful line of watches called MYAVA, which stands for My Accessory Voicing Awareness. The watches went on sale yesterday in red, black and white for between $33 and $38 as part of an Indiegogo campaign. About 20% of sales will go to anti-bullying organization FREE2LUV.
