Buhay Party List boosted its campaign with the support of various celebrities who went all out in their video endorsements. With only a few days left in the campaign, these personal endorsements will hopefully push Buhay into the top 10 among party lists come May 9.
Among the celebrities who are endorsing Buhay are Janice De Belen, Miriam Quiambao, Dianne Medina, Nicole Donesa, Jeffrey Santos, Maxine Medina, Arny Ross, Jan Marini, DJ Jai Ho, Inah de Belen. And celebrity athletes, Melissa Gohing, and Peter June Simon.
“It came as a welcome opportunity as we started with Dianne Medina, who is a servant in their parish, who did a video endorsement for us. Then many of her friends in showbiz gave us their support, after that,” said Chi Valedepeñas, wife of Buhay’s first nominee, Von Valdepeñas.
Chi Valdepeñas is a celebrity in her own right, as an anchor and TV host.
Given the strict pro-life and pro-God advocacies of Buhay, Valdepeñas said that getting showbiz celebrity endorsers for them was a hard task. Still, when they came, they not only fit the Buhay stance but also represented different sectors.
Meanwhile, when it comes to the culture of life advocacy, Buhay Party List ensures that they have been doing their work in society on issues like waging war against poverty, promoting livelihood; working against climate change and recovery; sustainable water use; giving the public value for their money; and exposure to forced sterilization and risks of implantation.
Founded by Deputy Speaker Lito Atienza, who is known for his staunch pro-life stance, Buhay Party List works closely with various groups to deliver more effective public services for Filipinos. Among them are Home for the Angels, Kababihan ng Maynila, Lito Atienza Cultural Arts Foundation, and Mahal ko si Lolo, Mahal ko si Lolo.
In terms of law-making excellence, the party-list also includes front runners in regulating laws related to their advocacies such as Fighting and Saying No to Pork Barrel; Moving for the Repeal of RH Law, Advocating Good Governance and Rule of Law; Helping the Poor, PWDs, Senior Citizens and Other Sectors; Promoting Culture and Sports; and Environmental Protection.
