Whether she donates blood, participate in charitable works for the Philippine Red Cross, or delivers relief goods to typhoon victims and the Taal catastrophe or assists hapless people caught in the crossfire in war-torn Mindanao or races to the aid of frontliners in the COVID-19 pandemic, Angel Locsin is simply a true real-life superhero.
We all bear witness to these acts of kindness, most of the time see Angel in her simple, unfiltered, unassuming self, offering a helping hand to anyone in need. Be it in the form of fundraisers, actual events, social media campaigns, or personal visits—Angel would always give comfort to the weary and devastated, especially when the unthinkable happens.
She acts fast, just like the popular superhero she portrayed, zooming up in the heavens just to reach those in distress and help them in no time. And, she doesn’t need any intervention, assistance, or even motivation to do it.
She just simply cares with all her heart.
As she celebrates her 35th birthday today, April 23, we all honor Angel for all her big-hearted acts that even made the international press recognize her as one of the “Heroes of Philanthropy” last year.
In reacting to the award given by Forbes Asia, Angel said: “I’m nowhere near from being a billionaire, but I try my best to do my part in my own little way. I hope this would inspire other people to help as well.”
While she may not play a superhero in The General’s Daughter, which is currently re-airing on Kapamilya Gold, she nonetheless receives much praise for her performance as titular character Rhian Bonifacio in this drama.
