Boy Abunda Pays Tribute To Mother With Make Your Nanay Proud Foundation

WITH BOY ABUNDA as founder and chairman, the new foundation MYNP (“Make Your Nanay Proud”) is set to get huge support from celebrities, what with its creed dedicated to the empowering love everyone has for a mother. A year after its inception, MYNP has already made a dent in the field of community service, with its committed people going from town to town helping lift up the spirits of typhoon and earthquake victims and providing their basic needs with relief goods distribution. It also visited some correctional facilities to support detained women longing for company and moral support.

“We definitely need powerful voices to deliver our message,” says Boy when he presented to the press the people behind MYNP.
Actresses Angel Locsin and Angel Aquino, and singer Ima Castro have already made their presence felt by participating in various activities to help survivors of natural disasters. The two Angels participated in some relief activities with Boy in the aftermath of two major typhoons that hit the country months ago, Pablo and Yolanda. Ima, on the other hand, sang songs in a recent MYNP gathering. Angel Aquino did poetry reading.”

Boy revealed that ”Queen of All Media" Kris Aquino, his co-host in the new show, “Aquino & Abunda”, is also willing to give support in any possible way. She already did by sharing her experiences with her late mom, Pres. Cory Aquino, in an anthology of tribute-to-mother insights from prominent people. Called the MYNP Book, it will be published in May. Other personalities who contributed to the book are Sens. Grace Poe, Loren Legarda and Sonny Angara, comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas, and Boy himself who got his basic ideas for MYNP from his deep affection for his very own Nanay Lesing.

“We want to be able to put up an annual gathering of mothers called ‘Kongreso Ni Nanay’ to be hosted by MYNP. This congress hopes to build a community of mother-loving citizens by showcasing the lives of individuals who succeeded in life with the support of their Nanays.”

He also introduced MYNP’s project “Kalusugan Ni Nanay” that will send health and wellness caravans for medical consultations and donations around Metro Manila and other key cities. “Mahirap magtayo ng foundation. In fact, legalities pa lang took us a year to furnish. Pero we know our mantra, that is to be the best of who you are and the best in all you do. We’ll do this and we hope to get the support of our friends in the industry as we encourage children to always make their mothers proud.”
One of MYNP’s commitments to spread the good word is by constructing statues (“Bantayog Ni Nanay”) that depict the heroines in mothers in particular areas. For more information visit MYNP website: www.makeyournanayproud.com or call MYNP office 4135868 or email makeyournanayproud@yahoo.com
