Sharon Cuneta urges fans to help rescue dogs instead of buying her gifts
If Sharon Cuneta were to be asked, she would rather not receive gifts from fans for Christmas or her birthday on January 6.
In an Instagram post, the Megastar encouraged her supporters to simply donate to cause-oriented projects like the Pawssion Project Foundation instead of buying her presents.
"Dear Family, Friends, my Sharonians/ Sharmy, I do not expect any gifts from any of you this Christmas and on my birthday on January 6, but knowing you, you are probably already preparing gifts for me or planning to. Please - DO NOT BUY ME ANYTHING," she said.
"I have way too much stuff, we are always blessed with so much food from everyone always. But if you insist like I know lots of you will, and you REALLY want to give me something that I will appreciate and truly treasure, please DONATE instead to @pawssionproject," the veteran actress said.
Founded in October 2018, Pawssion Project Foundation Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of abused and neglected animals.
Sharon is a dog lover.
She said ensuring rescued dogs are well-fed and healthy would bring her more happiness. "If you would want me to know that you have donated, you may donate in your name and add 'for Sharon.' But that really won't be necessary," she added.
"Any amount or anything in kind that you give will be truly appreciated and we will be so grateful to you! THIS IS WHAT I WANT FOR THIS CHRISTMAS AND MY BIRTHDAY THAT WOULD REALLY MAKE ME HAPPIEST. Your undying love and support for me are more than enough," the veteran actress said.
"It would really fill my heart though if you give to our dogs instead of any kind of gift to me. I do not need anything more. I need all the help I can get for the animals I love so much these animals who cannot speak for themselves," Sharon also said.
