World renowned PHL boxing champ Manny Pacquiao was recently tapped by Habitat for Humanity Philippines (HFHP) as one of its celebrity-ambassadors.
Habitat for Humanity Philippines (HFHP) is a non-profit Christian ministry working to help build responsible and self-reliant communities by enabling Filipino families in need to acquire affordable, decent, and durable homes. Established in 1988, HFHP is present in provinces and cities through its local affiliates, local management councils and project coordinating councils nationwide. HFHP envisions a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Pacquiao is the latest additional ambassador to the non-profit organization for its "I Build... What Will You Build?" social responsibility campaign.
Pacquiao's advocacy in knocking out poverty, ending poverty in any way by building homes for the poor residents in Sarangani province qualifies him as HFHP's ambassador.
The campaign seeks to serve as a unifying catalyst to create a community building and development model by providing innovative and sustainable housing solutions to uplift the Filipino family as pointed out.
Aside from Pacquiao these were already celebrities who were committed to the organization's cause not only for their popularity. They were actress and television host Kris Aquino, broadcast journalists Karen Davila and Arnold Clavio, former beauty queen Margie Moran-Floirendo, singer-stage actress Cris Villonco, young actor and racer Matteo Guidicelli, Alexandra Eduque, basketball sensation Chris Tiu, model-actor-athlete Derek Ramsay and television host Kim Atienza.
These are the people who have "the heart", "the voice", "the commitment" for volunteerism and awareness in raising more funds for building houses.
