"This is the best birthday I’ve ever had."
Alexa Ilacad, who turned 18 years old yesterday, February 26, celebrated in advance last Sunday, February 25, at the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
Unlike other girls who opt a grand debut, the Kapamilya singer-actress chose a simple yet meaningful party for a cause for the 300+ rescued cats and dogs from the non-government organization.
"I thought this was the best way to celebrate my 18th birthday," Alexa shared to PUSH.
"My plan honestly was not to even have a get-together but just to visit and feed the animals on my own with my mom," she added.
Nonetheless, a big thanks to her very supportive fans (Alexanators) who helped her organize and made the event possible.
"You guys really don’t know kung gaano ako kasaya ngayon. Kung umiiyak ako sobrang tears of joy ito. Sobrang thank you talaga. This is the only way I would have ever wanted to spend my 18th birthday and thank you for making it possible. This is the best birthday I’ve ever had," Alexa said in her emotional birthday speech dedicated to her supporters.
Alexa's heart is really selfless because according to her...
"What I requested from the Alexanators is that instead of giving me gifts, rather just give to PAWS," she explained.
"You guys don’t know kung gaano niyo ako pinasaya. Habang buhay akong magpapasalamat sa inyo in helping me help the animals."
Of course, just like any other birthdays, there are still cakes, food, and giveaways.
Don't worry, the "debutante" herself prepared special food for the animals. ❤
Amazing! Let Alexa be your inspiration guys! ❤
Happy Birthday, beautiful girl! ❤
