Adding to the long-list of stars into charitable activities is Alden Richards, who is now planning to establish his own philanthropic foundation.

“Meron po talaga akong plano, baka this year po or next year makapagpatayo na po ako,” the heartthrob shared.

According to Alden, he is doing so mainly to expand his ability to help people, particularly sick, abandoned children.

The 24-year-old actor-singer shared, “Naniniwala po kasi ako na kaya ako binigyan ng maraming blessings ni Lord eh, hindi lang po para sa sarili ko pero para mai-share ko ito sa ibang tao at ‘yun nga po ang gagawin ko.”

Just recently, Alden donated to some charities block screening income of his latest film “Imagine You And Me.”

Flashing his bedimpled smile he shared, “Kapag na-i-share ko po kasi ito sa ibang tao ‘yung blessings, du’n ko narararamdaman ‘yung worth ng mga bagay. Kapag sa akin lang parang feeling ko kulang.”

Despite being an all around nice guy, Alden, surprisingly, has his own share of bashers.

He doesn’t mind, however, saying, “Nasanay na po ako.”

“Hindi naman po kasi talaga maiiwasan eh,” Alden explained. “Especially ngayon na the more po na umaangat ako. Kahit gumagawa ka ng mabuti, most of the time may masasabi pa rin ang mga tao.”

Admittedly, he gets hurt at times particularly relating to the issue he supposedly asks money before meeting with fans.

“Aaminin ko po mahirap lunukin, alam naman po ng mga tao na kahit mahirap o mayaman hindi kailangan ng pera para ma-meet ako,” the popular star noted.

Nonetheless, he maintained, “Bahala na po sila kung ano man ‘yung sabihin nila, kasi at the end of the day naman, mas kilala ko ang sarili ko, mas kilala ako ng mga tao na totoo pong nagmamahal at nakakaintindi sa akin.”

On a different note, Alden divulged plan is afoot for a soap opera starring him and love team partner Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza.

“Actually pinaguusapan pa lang po sa ngayon so, ako po naghihintay lang pero I’m praying na matuloy ito,” he said.

When kidded that he might be rolling in cash now, what with his numerous projects, the Bulacan native just smiled and said, “Honestly ayoko po talagang i-convert ito into numbers. Ang masasabi ko lang talaga nakakaraos na kami kaya thankful lang po talaga ako.” (MNS)
