Actor Donny Pangilinan has received his award as one of the 2022 honorees of People Asia's "Men Who Matter", which the magazine said "celebrates not just the masculine gender — but the attributes that make them matter as people."

On Instagram, Donny shared photos of himself from the awarding ceremony held last Thursday, July 21, at the New World Makati Hotel.

"Truly an honor to be part of @PeopleAsia’s Men Who Matter 2022 last night. It has been a crazy journey so far, but this is definitely one for the books. Glory is all His," he wrote.

In his acceptance speech, which was streamed live on Facebook, Donny said he dedicates the recognition to his loved ones and loyal fans who have supported him since Day 1. 

“Guys, I know you’re all watching right now,” he said. “This is for you. It’s truly an honor to have you guys in my life.”

Addressing his fellow awardees, he said: "I hope we’re not just remembered as men who mattered [at] one point in history, but men who continue to matter, as they to do their God-given talents every single day and leave a legacy and impact in their own specific worlds.”

The actor, 24, joins the likes of tycoon Lucio Tan, human rights lawyer Atty. Chel Diokno, University of the Philippines rookie Carl Tamayo, and award-winning chemist Dr. Fabian Dayrit in the "Men Who Matter" list which was first unveiled in June.
