Please vote for my eggs!
Posted on

Most recently, Eastwood City and Newport City Malls asked a bunch of us to decorate giant easter eggs for charity.
Those participating are Alyanna Martinez, Joey Mead, Tessa Valdes, Tim Yap, Will de Vaughn, Hideo Muraoka, Divine Lee, Angelica Panganiban, Rajo Laurel and myself.
I only had a few days to work, so I asked help from Nikki Luna, my sister Ana Zamora and Carlos Rosales.
Special thanks go to the kind workers of True Value at Rockwell Mall and our house help Mariza and Gina who helped me cut so many pictures of these lolas.

My egg


My egg

My egg is dedicated to the lolas in Lipa, which is my chosen charity.
If I win, the Php 100,000 prize will go towards building a water well for the home of the abandoned elderly run by the Missionaries of the Catechism in Marawoy, Lipa, Batangas.
For more than 13 years now, our family has been great friends with the nuns of Lipa who are very much a part of our family.

The nuns love him

The nuns are a godsend

Ten years ago, we, along with family and friends, helped them build a kindergarten in loving memory of Jeroen’s mom, Wil van Straten, who loved the nuns of Lipa.
Most recently, we’ve been helping them finish a home for Lipa’s abandoned lolas, ages 80-100.
My contribution was to furnish all their bathrooms, hehe.

Although the facility is nearly done, there is a water problem. Php 500,000 is what they need to finish the project.
Therefore, the Php 100,000 prize from the Easter Egg would take care of 20% of the cost. If I win, I promise to double this amount. (If I don’t I will help them raise the money anyway.)
Take a look at the lolas that would benefit greatly from this project.

Most of them abandoned, unwanted, and found on the streets of Lipa
