ABS-CBN Films Managing Director Olivia Lamasan shared how generous Toni Gonzaga is, especially to the retrenched workers of ABS-CBN.
The award-winning director revealed how Toni didn’t hesitate to share her blessings at a time when many were in need from her home network. Toni was one of those celebrities who took the word “Kapamilya” to h
eart by donating a generous portion of her talent fee to those who lost their jobs after ABS-CBN’s downsize.
Direk Olivia disclosed Toni’s good deed when she made a heartwarming birthday message for her on “I Feel U.” She also added that Toni accepted a job offer from them even at a rate lower than her usual pay.
“Nung una ka naming pinakiusapan gawin ang programang ito, sabi namin kung puwede tanggapin mo ito sa starting rate namin. Hindi kami nagdalawang salita. You readily accepted it; believing in the purpose, believing in the objective that we have which is to maintain our presence and for us to continue serving the Filipino audience. For that, truly I am so grateful to you,” Olivia stated.
The director went on to wish more blessings for Toni for her big heart and generosity.
“Ito pong si Toni gave a generous portion of her talent fee, if not all, para po sa mga empleyado ng ABS-CBN na nawalan po ng trabaho nung inorder po ng Congress na i-shutdown kami. I will never forget that kasi napaiyak mo ako noon sa sobrang kalakihan ng puso mo at kabutihan mo. I pray that God returns your generosity a thousand-fold and that blessings may continue to abound you in all aspects of your li
fe,” she said.
