Many Pacqiao earned millions of dollars in one hour when he fought Floyd “Money” Mayweather. Pacqiao lost the match. But he became a champion in the minds of his fans. And now he’s proving his championship pedigree. He’s spending his millions building 1,000 homes for poor families in his homme town.
Unlike other boxers, like Mayweather and Tyson, Pacqiao realises that the real fight isn’t in the ring.The real fight is political. It’s the fight to get equal rights. The fight to end poverty. The fight to see every one of us living in a home of their own.
Manny Pacquiao’s compassion separates him from the pack. And now he’s proving his compassion by paying for 1,000 homes to be built for under-privileged families living in his home town of Sarangani Province, Philippines.
“I’m so happy to be providing these houses free to my constituents in Sarangani Province from my own pocket. More than one thousand families are the beneficiaries,” he tod us earlier in the year.
Manny Pacquiao says he realised how lucky he was while earning millions in a single hour fighting Floyd “Money” Mayweather. His spirituality and philosophy motivated him to give some of that money back to those who needed it the most.
“As faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms, each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,” he told us. “I’m still building more because I always believe what the bible says offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.”
Critics are saying that this act of compassion if a calculated political move. But the 1,000 families who have been given homes could not care less about that. His generosity, we believe, is worth celebrating even if it does elevate his political career at the same time. If Donald Trump had earned his way to the top by providing homes for the homeless, the world would be a better place.
