Ruffa Gutierrez’s birthday
Happy birthday Ruffa Gutierrez! Today marks the birthday of actress, tv host, and good friend Ruffa. I am sorry but I wont be writing about what transpired in her show Paparazzi yesterday but instead will fill you in on details of her birthday build for Habitat for Humanity. I am in the mood for good vibes and nothing less!
It was a scorching Saturday afternoon and close friends gathered in Starbucks in Timog as we got ready for her birthday build in Payatas, Quezon city. I personally thought that this was such a noble way to spend the birthday -by blessing others with homes. So, that day, we all trooped riding the Black Fleet party bus filled with ribbons, snacks and drinks as we psyched ourselves up for the birthday build. Ruffa committed 5 houses to be built by her friends and family to the community of Payatas through Habitat for Humanity.
This was a different kind of celebration for Ruffa and her troupe-it was a way of giving back. Gratitude was written on everyone’s faces. But i think more than the gratitude of the Payatas community, it was more the builders’ gratitude that resonated. To be given a chance to help was more of a privilege rather than an obligation.
