SHARE AND CARE – Must say a good word for actors who share and care, especially where needy colleagues are concerned.
Think Vivian Velez and Nadia Montenegro and Bianca Lapuz who are incorporators of Damay Kamay. They came to the rescue of Dick Israel and Matutina (Evelyn Guerrero). Dick suffered a stroke and his house and all its belongings were burned down. Matutina is confined in a hospital, conscious but can only communicate through writing.
Also beneficiary of showbiz generosity is Julio Diaz, recuperating after a stroke. Coco Martin was of great help.
Also on hand to help are Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla, Alma Concepcion, Karla Estrada, Louise de los Reyes, Jeffrey Santos.
Heroic in time of calamity are Richard Gutierrez, Gerald Anderson, Ryan Agoncillo, Jericho Rosales.
Alden Richards hope to set up a foundation for the elderly and abandoned children. His way of saying thanks for the blessings he’s been receiving.
GENEROUS STARS – Through the years, usually without fanfare, a number of stars have shown their generosity, ever ready to support worthy endeavors.
As they come to mind.
Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez and his wife Congresswoman Lucy Torres.
Nora Aunor – at times to a fault, even if at times she herself isn’t that well off.
Angel Locsin, Anne Curtis, Dennis Trillo, Sharon Cuneta, Vilma Santos, Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera, Martin Nievera, Ogie Alcasid, and Regine Velasquez.
Among producers, there’s no one like Mother Lily Monteverde. Such a generous lady.
Lolit Solis is extra kind to fellow writers, sharing her “loot” with whoever is around.
MORE & MORE – Dr. Boy Abunda (he just finished his Ph.D. in social communications), director Joel Lamangan, Congressman Alfred Vargas, Mayor Herbert Bautista, Boots Anson-Roa Rodrigo, Manay Ichu Maceda.
Pempe Rodrigo’s Baliksaya is ever ready to help members, composed of Sampaguita, LVN, Premiere actors. Freelancers, too.
Susan Roces does not only share material blessings. She also imparts words of wisdom. Always a pleasure and honor to talk to her.
Joseph Estrada and son Jinggoy, Bong Revilla, even under adverse circumstances, share and care.
