Marian Rivera did not disappoint our countrymen who lacked the height, or what they called ‘little people’ expecting her to be in an important event.
In the previous program list posted by its leader Toinkee Tomen, Marian’s name was not on the list, and guest speakers and guest artists are all that you can read.
But, because Marian has a big heart for the people in need, she surprised the ‘little people’ who hope to get involved, or get her support, with the help of her manager Rams David.
Here’s the post by Toinkee Tomen …
“Noong nalaman ko na siya ang Ambassador for Women and Children with Disabilities, sabi ko, gusto ko siyang imbitahin para sa second event ng little people dahil kahit papaano gusto ko din na magkaroon ng awareness sa dwarfism sa celebrity side.
[When I learned that she was the Ambassador for Women and Children with Disabilities, I said I would like to invite him to the second event of little people because somehow I also want to have awareness on dwarfism on the celebrity side.]
“So I tried, nag-send ako ng letter of invitation for her through her manager pero hindi ako nag- expect dahil alam ko kung gaano sila ka-busy na mga tao. At kaninang hapon sa #BIGDREAMSForLittlePeopleUnderstandingourRightsandWelfareForum, nasorpresa na lang kaming lahat sa kanyang pagdating.
[So I tried, I sent a letter of invitation for her through her manager but I did not expect because I knew how busy they were. And this afternoon at #BIGDREAMSForLittlePeopleUnderstandingourRights andWelfareForum, we were all surprised at her coming.]
“Maraming-maraming salamat Ms. Marian Rivera-Dantes sa pagdalo at pagbibigay mo ng mensahe sa aming lahat. Salamat sa inyong oras.
“To Sir. Rams, maraming-maraming salamat din po sa inyo. Hanggang sa muli. Salamat po Panginoon sa lahat ng biyaya.”
[Thank you very much. Marian Rivera-Dantes to attend and give you a message to us all. Thank you for your time.
To Sir. Rams, thank you very much. Until again. Thank you Lord for all the blessings.]
“Karangalan namin ang maimbitahan sa inyung piging Toinkee Tomen. Salamat sayo dahil isa ka sa haligi ng grupo na nangangalaga sa karapatang pangtao ng mga Little People,”
[We are honored to be invited to the Toinkee Tomen family banquet. Thank you for being part of the group that cares for Little People’s rights] Rams said.
So no matter what people say about Marian’s character, people like Little People and children with problems with their mouths or cleft lip, say, that Marian is a good person.
