Furthering her philanthropic efforts amid the Christmas season, Angel Locsin has donated P20,000 to a fan who commented on her upcycling holiday decorating video uploaded on Dec. 2.
Locsin took to Instagram to share her donation, explaining that she "felt a bit insensitive" showcasing her decorated home in the vlog.
"I admit I felt a bit insensitive. As we were decorating our home, there is someone who might not be able to celebrate Christmas this year," the actress began.
"Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying we shouldn’t celebrate or share our Christmas preparations. I’m a sucker for celebrations and I believe everyone should be rejoicing the birth of Jesus Christ. That is why I wanted to somehow help make someone else’s Christmas a bit merrier."
She added that the commentator didn't need to be a subscriber to receive Angel's blessing, but someone who was open to sharing their story: "Just the first person na nabasa ko ang comment at kwento. And we found her."

She went on to show screenshots of one Jenalane Gaviola Dolloso from Cebu City, who commented how her factory worker mom continues to strive to provide for her and her siblings. Angel also shared receipts sending P20,000 to the Dolloso family.
"Hiling namin ang mapasaya ka at makapagcelebrate kasama ng iyong mga mahal sa buhay!" the actress wrote.
