After the long-running kiddie gag show Goin’ Bulilit bid its farewell in 2019, alumni John Manalo was one of those who were vocal about how many opportunities the show opened up for him as a young actor when he first joined the cast at nine years old. This is why he will always be grateful for his four-year-stint on the show.

Last October 10, the 27-year-old actor shared that he wanted to help raise funds for the medical expenses of one of the show’s former writers, Sherwin Buenvenida, through an online raffle using his personal luxury items. He said of Sherwin, “Simula nun tumayo na siyang parang kapatid sa akin. Itong taong ‘to ay sobrang dami ng natulungan mapa pamilya niya at sa industriya. Alam kong maraming nagmamahal sa kanya at malalapagsan niya lahat ng ito. Pero mas madali niyang mahaharap ang pagsubok na ito pag may kasama siya.


“Kaya naisip ko magparaffle ng mga gamit ko. Precious lahat ng ito para sa akin. Pero wala lang ito kumpara sa lahat ng nabigay na tulong sa akin ni Kuya Sherwin at nabigay niyang tulong sa mga tao.

“Sa panahon na ‘to masaya ang win-win situation. WIN dahil nagkaron na ng bagong amo itong mga gamit ko at WIN dahil nakatulong tayo kay Sherwin.

“Alam kong di maliit na halaga ang 500 pesos. Pero sa 500 PESOS na ito. Nakatulong ka na at nagkaron ka pa ng chance magkaron ng CLASSIC BIKE or VINTAGE FILM CAMERAS.”
