Surprisingly enough, there are still some who have other people’s interest at heart. In this case, we can think about of the Filipino community. You may not be aware of this, but many Philippines are missing one vital element in their lives: homes.
Homes For The Poor
The situation is dire. But, on the bright side, some have already started to take notice. Famous boxer Manny Pacquiao is among them.
After his fight in the ring with Floyd Mayweather, Manny did an extraordinary thing, both as a politician and a fighter: donate money for a good cause. In this case, the building of homes for the homeless Philippines.
As a result of this over 1,000 houses built within his hometown could now help provide shelter to all the poor souls.
Even tough he is known mostly for his success in boxing, through his recently accomplished deed, Manny overdid himself. He did not fail to share the news with his Facebook followers.
“I’m so happy giving this houses free to my constituents in Sarangani Province from my own pocket more than thousand families are the beneficiaries.”
A report revealed by The Star suggested why this sudden change of heart in Manny. It was simple. It appears that his fight in the ring had something to do with this.
His inspiration came after facing Floyd Mayweather. Although he lost the match, “born again Christian” Manny believed that the million of dollars received would do to others much more good than to him.
Faith in Religion or a Political Scheme?
“As faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms, each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others. I’m still building more because I always believe what the bible says offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”
A simple act as this easily brought happiness to the people of Philippines. Having homes today may seem as a commodity, but for some not even that exists.
At this point, it would be interesting to think that the generous gift can also be seen as a political move. His position as a congressman does not really tend to help him, does it now? Would this be possible?
However this may be, 1,00 families can now enjoy the comfort of their own homes. Maybe celebrities should start focusing on what’s significant nowadays and start investing in saving others.
