BPCI’s second charity activity for the Bb. Pilipinas 2013 Official Candidates is Gawad Kalinga – a tougher but more fulfilling encounter for everyone. Dressed in their most rugged attires, the ladies trooped to Tanay, Rizal where they spent the whole day helping out in house-building and bonding with the locals.
While the more jaded among us would look at this pre-pageant cause as just a photo opportunity for the candidates to look concerned, there really is a deep-seated interest in most of them to share their time and be of use for such a worthy advocacy. And what’s one day of sweating under the blistering sun if the rewards – both tangible and otherwise – far outweigh what they contributed to the same.
