Richard Quan & his giving heart
() - January 6, 2010 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - For Richard Quan, 2009 was a good year, not just for the recognition of indie/digital films, but also for the immediate response of the Filipinos to extend a helping hand to victims of Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.

Richard himself did his own relief operations through his foundation that he put up with some friends seven years ago. Through the help of his well-meaning friends, Richard gathered old and new clothes, medicines, canned goods, sacks of rice and funds to further finance his foundation.

Last Nov. 10, 2009, Richard and a few friends went on with their charity work for the Philippine General Hospital. It’s a yearly tradition for Richard to go and visit a certain ward at the PGH to share his blessings.

Richard did a handful of indie/digital films such as UPCAT, Fuschia, Bala Bala: Maniwala Ka (where he got a Best Supporting Actor nomination in the Cinema One Originals awards night) and Ded Na Si Lolo, the Philippine representative to the 2010 Academy Award for the Best Foreign Language category.

Richard will soon be seen in another indie film titled Ukay Hukay. He is seen daily in the GMA 7’s primetime drama series Ikaw Sana.
