“About 25 years ago when I was just starting as an actor, I remember how I loved hearing anecdotes about different actors I look up to,” she initially said.
“One story that really moved and inspired me to this day is how [Ms.] Rio Locsin I heard, would stock up cupcakes or any food inside her car and give it as alms to our children and brothers on the streets instead of money,” she recalled.
Picache is so inspired by Locsin’s good deeds that she herself is practicing it.
“Since then, cupcakes were always part of my grocery and [I] would do the same to this day. This season, stepping up a little and preparing these gift bags for our children caroling or not, cleaning windshield or not and brothers begging or not on the streets,” she said.
The “Walang Hanggang Paalam” actress hopes others would do the same, which is why posted the story on Instagram.
“The only reason I’m posting is that you might be inspired too the way I was [25 years] ago, since wala na masyadong live [and] random na chikahan na nagaganap (there are fewer live and random chats happening) these days… socmed halos (mostly),” she said.
Since Picache has no sponsors, she is asking friends to help in whatever way they can.
“I’m not sponsored by any product as well kaya (which is why) to my closest of friends and family, alam [n’yo] na (you know what to do)… abundant love and heartfelt prayers muna ngayong Pasko (this Christmas),” she said.
While life is hard with the pandemic, for Picache, there is no reason not to celebrate Christmas.
“Trying and difficult times, work is scarce though there is so much to be thankful for and so much to celebrate and share this season, no matter how simple, because God’s love never fails,” she said. NVG
