Angel Locsin is well-known for being generous and helpful on her countrymen or whoever is in need.
She remained low key and quite for all the good deeds she done and never made it with the media on her side.
This time, all her generous act had been recognized internationally.
Angel Locsin is in Forbes Magazine’s annual “Heroes of Philanthropy” list for her efforts in giving out aid to victims of natural disasters.
The list, released Monday, honors “billionaires, entrepreneurs, and celebrities across the region who are committed to solving some of the most pressing issues facing the Asia-Pacific.”
Forbes recognized Angel’s effort in donating P1 million to those hit by the recent earthquakes in Mindanao. She was also hailed for personally making sure the relief goods reached affected residents.
“Over the past decade, Locsin has donated as much as P15 million to causes such as educational scholarships for students, supporting the economic and political rights of indigenous people, and ending violence against women and children,” wrote Grace Chung of Forbes.
The magazine said it sifted through dozens of candidates, reviewed their monetary contributions, the depth of their involvement, as well as the reach of their philanthropic efforts.
“The goal is to highlight those giving their own money, not their company’s (unless they are the majority owners of a privately-held firm). The focus is on individuals who provide the capital and are personally committed to achieving a long-term vision,” Forbes Asia pointed out.
Aside from Locsin, also part of the 13th annual Heroes of Philanthropy list are Filipino businessman Hans Sy, Indian business tycoon Azim Premji, Australian billionaire Judith Neilson, and Chinese tycoon Jack Ma.
