Former Ifugao congressman Teddy Baguilat Jr.’s pet dog Vader is a donor to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) – all thanks to a very persistent volunteer who convinced the politiko to donate in the name of his furbaby.
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, June 8, the politiko said the UNHCR volunteer approached him after he went to the grocery to buy dog food. But when Baguilat told her that he has already donated to the organization, the volunteer did not give up.
The virtue of being makulit… I can add daw to my donation by having a 2nd donor in my name to help the displaced families in Marawi. Sabi ko sorry I live alone. She asked if I have a pet cuz I can name the additional donation to my pet. Puede pala iyon?! And she asked for another 2 minutes of my time which stretched to 10 mins,” said Baguilat.
“So Vader is now a UNHCR donor,” he added.
