Veteran actress Eula Valdes and her son Miguel collaborated in the LIGHT IT FORWARD challenge to build solar lights for Filipinos who still have no access to electricity.
The solar lighting movement involves solar advocates who will take on the LIGHT IT FORWARD challenge where low-cost, environment-friendly lamps are built personally to be donated to millions of Filipinos without electricity.
You can be a part of this movement along with other celebrities in a span of 20-30 minute assembly process and be a light to others.
Eula and Miguel Jose Valdes
Eula was challenged by her co-star in “Love thy Woman”, Yam Concepcion, a solar advocate from the second batch of Light Challengers. She then invited her son Miguel to take on the challenge with her.
The Valdes’ assembly process was uploaded on August 17, 2020, in a semi-time-lapse mode that lasted for more than a minute.
The actress mentioned that they wanted to help in their own little way to communities that have no access to electricity.
With just one attempt, the mother and son successfully lit each of the solar lamps and playfully waved it in the air with much joy.
“A few minutes of your time, can bring light to families that do not have access to electricity, LASTS FOR 12 HOURS A DAY FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS,” the Love Thy Woman star captioned the video.
The award-winning actress thanked the Executive Director of Liter of Light’s Illac Diaz for their vision, Yam Concepcion, and her son Miguel.
Eula challenged her fellow celebrity friends and family including:
- Angel Locsin
- Neil Arce
- Yayo Aguila
- Nana Cheska
- Herbert Bautista
- Raymond Lauchengco
- Ryza Cenon
- Vincent A. De Jesus
