Herlene Budol, popularly known as Hipon Girl, recently helped a family out after posting a photo of their relative from one of her charity events. The Binibining Pilipinas candidate visited the Missionaries of the Poor in Manila earlier this week.

After posting her experience and how she loved helping other people, a netizen named Real Aneth Florendo Tianela quickly recognized the person in Herlene’s photo. 


“Thank you so much po sa’yo madam na nakita namin s’ya na buhay pa, ang buong akala po namin matagal na s’yang patay,” the netizen said.

“Danny Marquez po siya, tubong Bikolano. Siya po ay naninirahan sa’min ng higit sa 35 years. Isang araw nagulat po kami naglayas siya.. yon nga po may nagpost din sa kanya noon at hinahanap kami.. May sakit na siya noon,” the netizen explained in the comments.

“Iba ka talaga Lord. Ang lakas ko sa’yo at ginawa mo akong instrumento sa ganitong paraan. mas pag bubutihan ko pa at ipagpapatuloy ko pa ang aking pag tulong at makita ko pa ang Purpose ko sa buhay. Gabayan nyo pa ako Lord,” she added.
