Actress and host Kris Aquino was set to give away cash prizes to selected netizens in celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 9, 2021.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, Kris announced that her team will be picking best answers from netizens who will explain why they loved their mothers and why they should receive PHP 5,000.
According to her, she’ll be picking 28 winning answers on Facebook and 14 winning answers on Instagram. Kris also said that money should be spent for their mothers and not for their selfish reasons.
In addition, Kris said that her prizes were open not only for biological mothers but also to those who acted as a mother to someone.
“I will give you P5,000 each para this Mother’s Day…hindi para sa inyo ha. Don’t be selfish. Ano ang gusto n’yong bilhin o kung para saan yung P5,000 na ipadadala ko para sa inyo para mapaligaya nyo ang mga nanay nyo this Mother’s Day. Kung hindi man yung biological mom mo yung nagpalaki sa’yo, it could be you aunt, it could be your sister, lola… kung sino man ang gusto mong i-celebrate, na nagpalaki sayo. The person you consider who acted like your mother, kung sino man siya, bibigyan ko ng P5,000 on your behalf para mapaligaya natin on Mother’s Day,” Kris said.
Kris also noted how May 8 — a day before Mother’s Day — was very significant to her family as she revealed that it was the same day in 1980 when her family was given the go signal to leave for the United States.
According to her, his father had to undergo heart-bypass surgery, adding that her stay in Boston changed her life after experiencing normal family life.
Kris went on to share that unlike her, who experienced having both father and mother together for three years in the United States, Josh and Bimby didn’t have the chance to spend that long with their biological fathers.
