Jiro Manio: 'Magnifico' Needs Our Help

Magnifico (the movie) has touched many lives (including mine) and has perhaps changed the world in many little ways that the people behind this film couldn't even imagine.

Jiro Manio, Magnifico himself, has portrayed his role so well that made the viewers cry a river for several times in the movie. I even remember how my students (BSE English Majors) cried so hard (yes, many times) when I decided to let them see the movie, Magnifico - truly inspiring!

According to INQUIRER.NET 
By: Jeannette I. Andrade @inquirerdotnet Philippine Daily Inquirer

"The country’s youngest multi-awarded actor, now apparently homeless, has found a home at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). For four days Jiro Manio, whose real name is Jiro Katakura, 23, has been wandering inside the NAIA terminal 3 living through the kindness of strangers, mostly employees. Clad in a hand-me-down shirt over shorts with a towel slung over his shoulder, Manio has been roaming the terminal lobby where the strip of fastfood restaurants are located, hoping for leftovers."

This is now a challenge to everyone. 

Let's help Jiro Manio and pass the good deeds on.
