LOOK: Olivia Manzano Reyes shows us a lesson in kindness with sampaguita girl
Even at a tender age, Olivia Manzano Reyes already shows that she has a heart of gold.
The 3-year-old social media darling, daughter of celebrities Andi Manzano and GP Reyes, melted everyone’s hearts recently by showing a simple gesture of generosity. This was narrated by her father in his Instagram post last Sunday, March 3.
The businessman posted a photo of a packed take-out meal, which he said his radio DJ wife and their daughter bought for breakfast from a fast-food chain earlier that day.
As they were leaving, Olivia saw an unidentified girl outside the entrance selling sampaguita. While she and her mother walked to their car, Olivia kept asking about the girl, with Manzano explaining to her about the girl’s unfortunate situation.
Olivia then decided to run to the girl and give her the food that was supposed to be her breakfast.
“In a few weeks our firstborn will turn 4, and I could not be prouder of the person she has become even at such a tender age,” Reyes said.
“There’s just too much negativity on the internet nowadays,” he added. “Sometimes we just need to see that there is light even in the smallest of things. Spread that light.”
Manzano attested to his story, adding that Olivia asked her if she can give the girl some money and toys.
“We asked for the little girl’s name before we left and on the way home, Olivia said she made a new friend,” Manzano added.
Olivia is currently enjoying being a big sister to newborn Amelia, Manzano and Reyes’ second child, who was born last Jan. 19. JB
