This Christmas, GMA Network recognizes the heart of the Filipino through a series of true-to-life inspiring stories.
Tagged, "Isang Pagkilala sa Puso ng Pilipino Ngayong Pasko," the stories tell the real-life tales of Filipinos who, by sharing what they can, have made a difference in the lives of many.
"When we came across these stories, we immediately knew that we had to share them with our audience," said Regie Bautista, Vice-President, GMA Program Support Department. "This Christmas campaign reaffirms what Filipinos should always be proud of -- the inherent goodness of their hearts."
Starring in the vignettes are GMA's biggest and most renowned Kapuso stars: Dingdong Dantes & Marian Rivera.
Marian portrays Mila, a woman who literally opens her home to the less fortunate. Mila welcomes the Season of Advent by selling Christmas decors in her garage. She uses the money she earns to prepare food and feed more than 200 families on New Year's Eve.
Meanwhile, Dingdong is cast as Jose, a modern day Christmas angel. Jose spends Christmas Eve going to different hospitals in Metro Manila, paying the bills of indigent patients unable to afford treatment. When the surprised families of these patients ask to thank him, they are told that Jose has already left.
"These are real-life Santas," explained Director Paul Ticzon, when asked what he found special about this project after having directed many of the Network's Christmas campaigns. "These are people who go out of their way to create a meaningful Christmas for others. Their stories will hit you in the heart."
