GMA Network’s Primetime Queen, Marian Rivera is truly an inspiring lady.
She is strong in her advocacies and mission in life. A few weeks ago, the actress was out shopping in SM Makati, not just for herself but for hundreds of children born with cleft palates whom she has pledged to support via Smile Train Foundation.
Marian partnered with local luxury retail and goods brand Kultura to make Mission No. 1 happen. “Kapag bumili ang tao ng mga damit sa Kultura parts ng proceeds ay mapupunta sa mga bata.”
[When you buy clothes from Kultura, parts of the proceeds will go to the children.]
She added, “Passion ko talaga tulungan ang mga bata maibalik ang mga ngiti nila. Three years na rin ako abala rito and maganda na sa ganitong paraan nakaka-raise ako ng awareness.”
[It’s really my passion to help kids. I have been doing it for three years and it’s great that I can raise awareness through this.]
Marian signed a 15-month contract with the proudly Filipino label Kultura, which includes her participation in designing a number of collections—bringing out Mission No. 2.
“Balak ko sana pearls muna and then saka na sa damit,” she explained, at the same time allowing her followers to make sense of Instagram feed, which now seems dedicated to Filipino fashion.
[I plan to design pearls first and then soon clothes.]
She also posted an Instagram photo of she and her daughter twinning in Kultura clothes.
“Alam mo mas nakaka-proud din kasi na magsuot ng gawang Pinoy. Talagang natuwa ako at gusto ko ipagmalaki sa mundo at sa followers ko na ang gawang Pinoy ay puno ng quality at matibay. Natutuwa rin ang anak ko. Ang ganda diba?”
[It makes me proud to wear Filipino-made clothes. I am happy and I want to shout to the world and to my followers that Pinoy-made is high-quality and sturdy. My daughter is also happy. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?]
By the way, Marian was even carrying a capiz clutch to go with her now widely photographed rose pink modern piña dress during this interview. Marian is always 100% fabulous!
