Gazini Ganados Portraits for Sale, Half of Proceeds to Go to Luwalhati ng Maynila Home for the Aged

Wazzup Pilipinas!

In celebration of Grandparents Day on September 8, the Araneta Center has organized several activities happening simultaneously at its leading establishments in Cubao, Quezon City. Please refer to our previous story fot details of the activities.

Aside from that, a recent portrait activity held with an elderly group would soon sell portraits of  Gazini Ganados, the 2019 Miss Universe Philippines, who willingly posed to the senior citizens on the afternoon of September 6, after which a mini press conference was held with members of the media.

In an interview with Gazini, she prefers that the elderly spend the remainder of their lives with their families, so we assumed that helping out those in retirement homes is her way of lessening their sorrowful situation having to grow old without their loved ones.

An interview with one of the elderly artists who was already 77 year old revealed that he only paints as a hobby since these last years of his life is meant to take it easy.

No more big responsibilities unlike when he was still working, but he would still paint during his free time.

Painting Gazini was easy for him since she was admittedly beautiful, but he also shared that what some would consider ugly could also be an interesting subject for some artists like him.

Our grandparents have been significant in our lives as they were responsible in bringing up our parents, and also guided us as we went through our own lives. Cherish the moments with them while we still can.

It is so sad that old age would cause us pain of losing our loved ones, but life was meant to be temporary yet the legacy we leave should make us memorable to the ones we leave behind.

As I also approach my golden year, I hope I touched lives with some goodness, and them to pay it forward too to other folks.

Gazini will be having a send-off activity sometime October before her international competition.
