Angel Locsin gave a few inspiring words on why she tirelessly gives help to others in need.
The actress has said the reason why she wants to help is simply because it is part of her role as a Filipino. Angel said extending help to her ‘kababayans’ is part of being a Filipino and she wants to inspire others to do the same too.
She said during an interview in We Rise Together, “Yun lang naman talaga ‘yon. I’m sure lahat ng mga nandito, ay ginawa rin naman nila ang part nila bilang isang Pilipino. Lagi nga nating sinasabi sa ‘Iba ‘Yan,’ iba tayong mga Pilipino, iba tayo magbayanihan. So bilang isang Pilipino ginagawa ko lang din ang parte ko at sana ma-inspire din ang ibang tao na gawin din ang parte nila. Iyon lang naman.”
Angel said she started vlogging also because she wants to help and give jobs to those who lost their livelihood when ABS-CBN was shut down.
“Nagkaroon ng retrenchment sa ABS-CBN, inisip namin bakit hindi tayo mag-vlog para mabiyan natin ng trabaho ang mga nawalan ng trabaho. Kahit paano ay makapag-provide tayo. So doon kami nagsimula. Para magamit mo rin ang platform mo to raise awareness o makapag-give back din sa mga tao,” she stated.
Just this year, Angel took an active part in various relief efforts and initiatives for the country. When the Taal Volcano erupted, Angel sent relief goods. She even went to Mindanao to also give aid when a series of earthquakes shook the region. Angel helped build COVID-19 isolation facilities and recently, she also helped residents who were affected by the devastating typhoons.
