YES, THEY DON’T WEAR CAPES.
Jackets and suits, maybe! But for sure, whatever they wear, these two gentlemen of the airwaves are making their marks in as far as helping the nation is concerned.
Willie Revillame, who we’ve known as a comedian and musician when he catapulted in the world of showbiz has become a talk show host and now, more of a public servant in his “Tutok To Win” program at the Kapuso lot every night.
Raffy Tulfo, the broadcaster who brings hard-hitting news as well as public service to his viewers on TV5, is now considered the Kingbof Public Service.
Recently, Willie extended his help to the jeepney drivers all over the country by giving P5-M to all the leaders of their associations to be disseminated to the members through the LTFRB.
Willie met with all the leaders and personally handed to them his help, from his own pocket, in cold cash!
Willie also helped the four families whose love ones perished in Beirut, Lebanon.
While there were many other jeepney drivers who went to the LTFRB to be helped, those who do not belong to any organization or association, Willie also gave them “ayuda”. Apart from the cash assistance, he also donated sacks of rice to be distributed to the drivers and his jackets.
Raffy, in his “Tulfo In Action” gives away money, to lucky listeners and viewers. The onnly thing he requests is for them to stay tuned to the show so when their phone rings, instant cash will be given to them.
As much as possible, Willie wants to make it a monthly thing, by sharing “ayuda” to the displaced drivers, remembering that once in his life, he also was down in the dumps.
Through the help of Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, who temporarily uses one of the floors of the Wil Tower as his office (because Malacañan is being disinfected), the proper persons like those in the LTFRB and DOLE were consulted as to the process that will be done in disseminating the cash gifts.
Luck is just a phone call away for those who are patient in waiting for their numbers to be called.
Idols Raffy and Willie are God’s gifts to many. Earth Angels who roam the earth to share their passion and compassion in using their time to alleviate in their own ways the devastation everyone experiences nowadays.
Both are Idols in their own ways!
Include them in your prayers. That more sponsors will also aid them in helping out to share more blessings to those who need it the most!
ANOTHER IDOL, both in front of the cameras and behind is showbiz’ Bad Boy Robin Padilla.
He shared this in his FB page.

“Ako po ay buong puso na nagpapasalamat kay sir Attorney Alex Lacson sa kanyang pagkakatalaga sa akin bilang kanyang nominado at ganon din kay sir congressman Rufi Biazon na nag udyok sa lahat ng mga namumuno sa pagpupulong kasama na si sir congressman RPG at sir Mediaman Harold para ibasura ko ang aking desisyon sa pagtanggi at tanggapin ang Misyon sa Multi Sector Advisory Board ng PHILIPPINE ARMY.
“God is my witness including all the soldiers and officers, ladies and gentlemen of the MSABPA that was present in the meeting.
“Hindi po ako nag apply para sa karangalan na ito, ang katunayan po ay hindi po ako talaga tumatanggap ng posisyon o ng kahit anong leadership maging sa showbiz, sa paaralan, sa bilibid, sa gobyerno o sa pagiging isang kandidato.
“Lahat po ng may kinalaman sa pamamalakad o pagiging isang pinuno o tagapamahala hindi po naging welcome sa akin, hindi po dahil sa ayaw ko ang aking pagtanggi sa karangalan kundi alam ko po ang aking capacidad, i am not a Leader, yan lang ang isang bagay po na kinakatakutan ko but i am a loyal follower! a soldier to a God given leader.
“Tinanggap ko po ang karangalan ng posisyon mula sa Kagalanggalang na sir chairman Alex Lacson dahil nangako po siya kasama si sir RPG, sir Harold at sir Rufi Biazon na ako po ay kanilang aalalayan at tuturuan upang magampanan ko ang MISYON na ibinigay nila sa akin.
“I am taking this as an order from you guys who put me here. I will always follow your lead sir alex . sir Rufi Biazon kampante po ako dahil naramdaman ko po kanina na hindi mo po ako bibitiwan. sir RPG who overpowered my decline i will rely on you, sir Harold asahan ko ang tropa sa Mindanao.
“Ako po ay buong puso na nagpapasalamat sa Nag iisang Rebolosyonaryong Hukbo ng Inangbayan Pilipinas ang Philippine Army sa pagbibigay po sa akin ng pagkakataon na maging bahagi ng makasaysayang Hukbo na ang nagtatag ay ang ating mga bayani na nakipagdigmaan sa mga mananakop katulad ng Kaharian ng Espanya, Estados Unidos at Kaharian ng Hapon.
“Isang karangalan po ang lumakad sa anino ng mga katipunero noon at ngayon In shaa Allah makatulong po ako sa paglalapit ng serbisyo ng Philippine Army sa taongbayan upang mas lalong maintindihan ng ating mga kapwa pilipino lalo ang mga naghihikahos na meron po tayong gumaganang hukbo na handang tumugon sa kanilang pangangailangan. Ang kailangan lamang ay tamang komunikasyon.
“In sha Allah ay biyayaan po ako ng Nagiisang Panginoong Maylikha ng kanyang wisdom at success upang lubusang makatulong sa Philippine Army na maipaabot sa ating mga kababayan ang pangangailangan ng kanilang hukbo at kung ano rin ang pangangailangan ng taong bayan sa kanilang hukbo upang magkaisa ang mga pilipino at makamtan ang minimithing kapayapaan pati ang pangako nitong kaunlaran at kaginhawaan in shaa Allah.”
The world, no matter what color or religion you belong to continues to have its very good people.
Armed with compassion, kindness and love, fighting to make this world and situation we are in, be a better place even if most lives are hanging by a thread, these three men gives their heart and soul for their fellowmen.
In exchange for what? Who said they asked for that!
Mabuhay kayo! (30)
