A hero on-cam and off-cam, Angel Locsin has been appointed the Ambassador for Peace and Humanitarian Advocate by the Gawad Filipino Awards last December 5.
The actress expressed her gratitude to the award-giving body for the award via an Instagram post of her holding up her certificate. “Maraming salamat po Gawad Filipino Awards. Mabuhay po kayo (Thank you very much Gawad Filipino Awards. Long live),” she gushed.
The post also included a close up photo of her certificate and a sash that said “ambassador.”

Many of her fans, friends, and colleagues took to her comments section to congratulate her for the distinction, including Liza Soberano, Chito Miranda, Marian Rivera, and her fiancé Neil Arce.
This post comes after Angel was also recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of Asia’s Heroes of Charity in its Heroes of Philanthropy list. The annual list includes billionaires, entrepreneurs, and celebrities across the region who are “committed to solving some of the most pressing issues facing the Asia-Pacific.”
Angel was commended for donating PHP 1 million and distributing truckloads of relief supplies to affected residents during the earthquakes in Mindanao last October as well as all of her other philanthropic work over the decade.
