Dion Ignacio donates music instruments on his birthday

5:29 PM

It has always been a dream to spend a birthday doing charity for kids. I was not sure if this will come true this year until I received an invitation from GMA Artists Center to cover Dion Ignacio's birthday outreach activity at Bagong Silangan Elemenary School in Quezon City on my birthday itself, March 19. Not only is Dion one of my favorite Starstuck star, helping him reach out to kids is also one box ticked off from my bucket list. 

Dion's complete birth name is Dion Joseph Ignacio. I assumed he was also born on March 19, the feast day of St. Joseph from where his second name would come from. I found out, however, that Dion's birthday is March 28. 

For those who follow him on Instagram, you probably know that he is a music man and is playing regularly with band Philia alongside fellow Starstruck alumnus Dex Quindoza. This is why Dion has thought of donating musical instruments to the drum and lyre team of Bagong Silangan. The actor and GMA 7 declined to disclose the total amount of the donations, however, the media saw several units of musical instruments being handed to the students on the day itself. 

On how he and GMA Artist Center chose Bagong Silangan Elementary School, the Innamorata star did some research. "Itong eskwelahan na ito ang may pinakamarami raw na musikero. Tapos lahat ng gamit nila dio, lahat idinonate. Sobrang mahalaga sa kanila yung music. Natutuwa ako kasi isa din akong musikero," the young actor said. "Sobrang gaan. Gusto ko maulit ito. Gusto ko magkaroon ulit ng charity event." 

As for the Dion, he will spend his actual birthday taping for his top-rating afternoon soap 'Innamorata'. For his birthday wish, he is just hoping for a steady showbiz career which entertainment insiders are seeing in the recent years. 'Innamorata' is Dion's third lead role in a drama series which is entrusted to him by GMA shortly after leading roles in "Magdalena" and "Maghihintay Pa Rin'. "Thankful ako for all the break that my home studio is giving me. Sa ngayon, wala akong mahihiling pa."

Here are some photos of Dion Ignacio's birthday outreach activity in Bagong Silangan Elementary School.
