Ghie Pangilinan Celebrates Her Birthday at Haven for the Elderly

Birthdays come only once a year. It's just right to make this special occasion memorable and fun. Once in a while, let us treat ourselves with a relaxing massage or facial treatment. Go out with family and friends and catch up with one another. Although it might not be possible now due to pandemic, we can still celebrate virtually with our loved ones. Have you ever tried celebrating your birthday with people who are in need?

Ghie Pangilinan

Skin Magical’s Ghie Pangilinan who recently turned 40 celebrated her birthday with the elderly at the Haven for the Elderly in Tanay, Rizal. Amidst pandemic but she decided to take her birthday celebration one step further by making it a good reason for other people to be joyful as well.

The elderlies were surprised with bags of groceries and bundles of assorted clothes distributed to each lolo and lola. They were equally delighted by the sumptuous foods prepared on the table. Everyone expressed appreciation at how Ghie would always remember to celebrate her treasured day with them since 2014. And during this quarantine season, Ghie sends them goods without fail.

Her over 400 employees were likewise treated to a special feast by serving them by batches and observing physical distancing throughout the day. Each received five kilos of rice and a gift from the lady boss. Ghie also distributed sacks of rice to her neighbors and to all the tricycle drivers of Sitio Butig, Brgy San Pedro in Morong, Rizal, where the Skin Magical manufacturing plant is  located.

“They were the ones who first came to my mind when I was thinking of how to make my hitting the big 4-0 a truly happy one. Sila ‘yung nadadaanan ko bago pumasok sa aming planta,” said Ghie, also fondly known as MGP. “With the blessings that I’ve been receiving, it is always a must for me to share them to people who have been supporting us. At sa dami ng natanggap ko na birthday gifts, I really felt it’s just but right to gift others.”

Ghie added, “I truly believe that even the smallest good deed can trigger a whole series of bigger, better deeds. My great satisfaction comes from giving (blessings) to others.” Her husband-cum-business partner Jerry Pangilinan, on the other hand, made it a point to be the first to greet the celebrator with a special cake, bouquet of flowers and a jewelry set.
