To usher in the holiday season and recap an incredible year, online community Home Buddies celebrated with PASKONG MAY PUSO 2.0, a gift-giving treat held through a variety of online activities for all beloved kapitbahays and ka-hangouts!
The celebration was kickstarted by Home Buddies founder, “Mayora '' Frances Lim Cabatuando, and Q Radio’s Ysa Chong as hosts. To add to the fun, Quest and Kitchie Nadal entertained the kapitbahays and ka-hangouts with their performances, along with a series of games that brought fun prizes, sponsored by its partner brands: Bet On Your Buddy (sponsored by Dakki), Around The Globe: Guess The Movie & Country (sponsored by Globe Roaming), Read My Lips (sponsored by All Home), and Zoomba (sponsored by Irish Spring). Present also at this event was Kevin Pueblo as the guest tanod.
Through PASKONG MAY PUSO 2.0, Home Buddies raised funds for the makeover of a SPED (Special Education) classroom at the Pasay City North High School.
In line with their advocacy of giving back to the community, Cabatuando and Pueblo shared their gratitude for the overflowing support.
“We are one kapitbahay, we are 3-million strong, and we are here to support them. Thank you dahil sa pagsali ninyo sa mga events tulad nito, we are able to raise funds for the benefit of the people who are in need,” Cabatuando said.
“Kaya hindi lang talaga siya Paskong May Puso di ba, it’s not just for us the kapitbahays but also for those who need help,” Pueblo said.
