Almost a week after her birthday photoshoot issue, Donnalyn Bartolome stayed true to her words as she continued to champion for certain advocacies. In her latest post, the YouTube vlogger gave her followers tips on how to protect their children from pedophiles and rapists.
“I will do my part mag-adjust to prevent unwanted thoughts from oppressors and learn from my mistakes but I cannot promise all content creators or influencers will do the same, because all of us have different perspectives, so please do your part by safeguarding your children. Let’s work together,” she wrote.
Aside from raising awareness and giving tips to her followers, Donnalyn is also doing a giveaway to 100 randomly selected followers. She will be giving away 100 CCTV cameras to the lucky winners of her giveaway.
The 28-year-old vlogger explained in fuller details as to why she decided to delete the photos from her birthday shoot.
“Kaya ako nagsorry at dinelete ang photos even if I knew I had no bad intention. Even if a lot of people didn’t look at it that way either and are saying I shouldn’t have said sorry. I did it because we need to understand that people have different upbringings and experiences so please try to understand each other instead of arguing,” she explained.
She continued to tell her followers not to gaslight those who called her out as they can’t invalidate the experiences of those who suffered from sexual abuse. She shared that she is doing this to further explain to those who didn’t really understand the gravity of the situation.
In her post, she also shared pictures of her younger siblings. In each picture, she placed different captions detailing what she had been through as their second mother. She also explained why she felt the need to be protective of her siblings who are much younger than her.
“Despite my imperfection, I will always strive to be their best guardian because they deserve a world where they are safe from any harm,” she said.
Netizens have lauded Donnalyn for her actions after the incident.
