    So, please start voting na. kahit isang milyong votes from you pede.

    If he wins, the country wins as well but the biggest winner and the one who will benefit the most are the kids that he and his group are helping. The win will mean more funds for his works.

    This young man is definitely Pinoy. A great role model every Pinoys all over.

    Salamat. make it 100,000 please…. ha ha ha.

    As I said in my earlier response above, if he wins, the children that he and his group are helping will benefit the most.

    I heard that aside from the recognition that CNN will award him, he will receive USD25th and, another USD100th if he bags the number one CNN Heroes award.

    Imagine how wide his work can cover with that amount. Plus of course, the honor to our country.
