Coco Martin just took some time off his busy showbiz schedule to finally celebrate his birthday by being a blessing to others.
Last Friday, November 1, the actor personally visited cancer patients at the Philippine Children's Medical Center for his 38th birthday.
He was joined by his fellow “Ang Probinsyano” stars John Prats, Mark Lapid, Raymart Santiago, and Aaron Villaflor in bringing happiness by giving away gifts and treats to the children confined in the institution.
According to Coco, it was his personal decision to hold a charitable event instead of throwing a grand celebration.
In an ABS-CBN News interview, he revealed, “Imbes na mag-celebrate ako ng birthday ko, mag-party, sabi ko, bakit hindi na lang tayo mag-charity?”
“Dalawin natin 'yung mga batang may sakit, 'yung mga wala nang magulang. Tayo naman ay makapagpasaya at bilang ganti sa pagmamahal at suporta na binibigay nila sa programa namin.”
Highlights of the celebration were already posted on the actor’s Instagram account.
Coco still leads the hit Kapamilya primetime series “Ang Probinsyano.” He also starred in several films, including the 2016 comedy flick “The Super Parental Guardians” and the 2017 superhero epic fantasy action movie “Ang Panday.”
Happy Birthday, Coco!
