18-year-old viral sensation Kean Ramos becomes first recipient of Ho’s program
A food delivery driver who uses rollerblades to work has become the first recipient of Gretchen Ho’s “Donate A Bike, Save A Job” program.
The former volleyball player-turned-TV host announced this on her social media account, briefly narrating the inspiring story of 18-year-old Kean Ramos.
Ho said Ramos filled in the shoes for his sick father as a Grab Food driver to help their family especially in this time of pandemic.
He also opened a coffee jelly business for additional income.
However, Ramos only use rollerblades to deliver his products to his costumers.
A citizen nominated Ramos in the bike-giving program through Twitter, which prompted Ho to search him online.
Ho plans to share Ramos’ story in a video on Friday.
She plans to give away 50 bikes by asking interested people to answer a form on why they deserve the freebie.
She also encouraged the public to nominate anyone they know who needed the said vehicle, which has become an essential mode of transportation.
Apart from giving away bikes, Ho is also launching a fund drive to procure more bikes to give away.
“Let’s empower people to continue fighting for their dreams by giving them a ride!” she said.
