Veteran PBA forward Ryan Arana turned 37 yesterday and to celebrate, he cooked up a ton of food.
However, said food went the way of the brave frontliners battling COVID-19.
The enhanced community quarantine in Luzon due to the COVID-19 outbreak is on its second week, and the battle is taking its toll on the frontliners.
Doing his own way to help, Arana chose to celebrate his birthday with our true modern-day heroes, preparing meals to those that keep us safe.
"Thank you to our frontliners, security guards, policemen etc. It was a simple act yet seeing their big smiles made it fulfilling," Arana wrote on Instagram.
This is how I celebrated my birthday. Instead of having a party, I planned on making it more meaningful by celebrating with our heroes in the streets. Thank you to our frontliners, security guards, policemen etc. It was a simple act yet seeing their big smiles made it fulfilling. I hope we can spread kindness and positivity especially at a time like this. Special thanks to all the people here at home who helped me with all the preparations. Cheers everyone ????
"I hope we can spread kindness and positivity especially at a time like this," he added.
Happy birthday Ryan, and may your act of kindness lift the spirits of our brave frontliners. Stay safe and healthy, Kapamilya!
