LOOK: Kim Chiu makes 29th birthday meaningful in the company of kids
After spending her 29th birthday on the beach, Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu decided to give back in an outreach program in Tarlac, sharing her blessings with underprivileged kids and senior citizens.
The “Chinita Princess” celebrated her birthday making other people happy, as she posted a series of photos and videos on Instagram last Friday, April 26. In the video, which is a montage of her charity work, kids sang “Happy Birthday” to the actress.

The “Mr. Right” singer also posted her meeting with Baby Aki, a child with a liver disease whose story went viral last March. She revealed that she donated her first YouTube salary for the baby’s liver transplant.
“Ever since, I always have a soft spot pagdating sa mga bata (when it comes to kids),” Chiu said.
Chiu also thanked her YouTube viewers, saying, “Posting this not to boast but to thank [those who viewed my YouTube videos.]”
