Our Lucky Beneficiaries
1. Angelito Genuino
Lolo Lito, popularly known as “Lolo Pops”, is a 69-year-old candy lollipop vendor in Pampanga. He is usually seen selling candy lollipops around the schools and universities in the city, and is mostly loved and respected by the students who grew fond of his perseverance, hardwork and love for his family. Rain or shine, he is seen walking around to sell lollipop, and on some occasions, sleeping on a pasteboard or “karton” in the streets of Pampanga. At such an old age, Lolo Lito continues to do his duty as the head of the family. His humble earnings are divided to support the needs of his grandchildren and the medication of his ailing wife.
2. Luxary Lumambong
Luxary, the 8-year-old kid who melted and inspired netizens’ hearts after a photo of him studying in the streets went viral, is a grade-schooler from a poor family in Davao City. The photo posted last year by a concerned netizen shows the young boy scribbling down notes using his pencil, with several pieces of paper and notebooks scattered before him—studying at night in the cold street with the aid of street lights. According to sources, Luxary preferred studying along the sides of the streets because their home wasn’t powered by electricity before. Despite poverty in the way, the boy strives to do well in class, and ultimately, in life. He is the fourth child in the family and dreams to be a firefighter someday.
3. Princess Audrey Avila
Princess, a 14-year-old girl, used to be the breadwinner of her young family. With her mother gone and her father dead, Princess together with her 3 siblings, are left in the care of their sick aunt. Back when she was 10 years old, Princess stood as the family’s breadwinner by collecting scrap, dumps or bottles. Having to support herself and her siblings, Princess used to depressingly roam around the neighborhood for food and money instead of attending school.
Fortunately, this year, Princess, supported by her aunt’s family, has continued her schooling. She dreams to be a policewoman someday and plans to support her younger siblings’ education.
4. Mark Angelo Jabat
Mark Angelo, a 22-year-old working student in college, now stands as the parent to his 8 younger siblings after a devastating incident greatly affected their family. Angelo’s father, Tatay Armando, who used to be a taxi driver, is currently behind bars for being involved in a drug case in which he claims to be innocent. Shortly after his father was detained, Mark Angelo’s mother left home taking their youngest sibling with her and haven’t heard from her since then. Being the oldest son in the family, Mark Angelo was left with no choice but to provide for their family. He juggles his education, part time janitorial work in the university, and many other menial tasks to earn money.
5. Rodel Clariño, Sr.
Tatay Rodel is a 58-year-old balloon vendor in Bulacan who carries a burden thousand times heavier than the lightweight balloons he sells every day. Tatay Rodel fathers a special 16-year-old boy suffering from meningitis, an 11-year-old girl diagnosed with slow brain development resulting to difficulty in speaking or communicating, and another sickly child who had been recently admitted to the hospital. His meager earnings of 50-300 pesos per day needs to be divided among the family’s needs and sometimes, to his children’s medication. Tatay Rodel is the excellent example of a father who would never cease and tirelessly work for his children’s sake. Uncomplaining and positive, Tatay Rodel continues to work hard with the hopes of having a future as bright and colorful as the balloons he sells to people.
This Christmas season, Camella enlivens the true essence of Christmas by paying it forward to the needy, and at the same time creating an avenue for everyone else to help. What better way to celebrate our most beloved and much-awaited season than by extending our hand, our love to others? This holiday, let’s all be our own versions of Santa Claus!
