Angel Locsin Responds To Her Forbes Asia Recognition
ANGEL LOCSIN – ABS-CBN actress Angel Locsin responded to being named as among the ‘Heroes of Philanthropy’ list by Forbes Asia.
Kapamilya actress is admired by millions of Filipinos due to her generosity towards the people who needs help. After the several tremors in Mindanao, she and her fiancé Neil Arce immediately flew to Davao City to buy relief goods for the quake victims.
That is not the first time she offered some help to her fellowmen. She also provided aid to those who are displaced after the battle of the government troops and local terrorists in Marawi in 2017.
In a previous article, ‘Forbes’ magazine recognized Angel Locsin for her philanthropic work in her country. She and businessman Henry Sy were included on their ‘Heroes of Philanthropy’ list.
The famous magazine also cited the ‘Darna’ actress already donated “as much as 15 million pesos to causes such as educational scholarships for students, supporting the economic and political rights of indigenous people, and ending violence against women and children.”
Angel’s fiance Neil Arce took to Instagram to express how proud he is of his soon-to-be-wife. “Dahil nahihiya ka ipost ako na lang mag post my strong independent woman! IM proud of you my Love!” he wrote.
On Wednesday, December 4, Angel Locsin responded to being listed as one of the ‘Heroes of Philanthropy’ by Forbes Asia. She said she hoped that lots of people would be inspired to do the same for their fellowmen.
The 34-year-old actress shared Forbes’ Tweet about her inclusion. It came with a caption, “I never thought @ForbesAsia would ever mention my name. Thank you! Filipinos have always been known for ‘bayanihan.’”
“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,” Angel said.
