The legacy of love of Gina Lopez lives with G Diaries fourth season debut on ABS-CBN yesterday, Sept. 15.
This season, the 30-minute program shares inspiring stories of ABS-CBN Foundation beneficiaries and will feature celebrity guests who will travel and immerse themselves in different communities aboard the “Share the Love” bus.
The “Share The Love” bus is ABS-CBN’s public service on wheels. It is designed to go anywhere to serve and help Filipinos in need. It can carry “Gusto Kong Mag-aral” bags (school supplies), soup kitchen materials, seedlings for planting, and volunteers.
Continuing the multi-awarded travel show of the late Gina Lopez is her brother Ernie Lopez, who will take the wheel as the program host, sharing stories of hope and transformation to the people.
“No one can take her place, but that does not mean that we should quit. We should not give up on her mission to share the love. Gina, with God’s grace, we will continue to share the love),” said Ernie, who also serves as president of the ABS-CBN subsidiary Creative Programs Inc.
The show also features the impact of ABS-CBN Foundation’s Yolanda projects nationwide, touching base with people assisted directly by the foundation to see how their lives improved in the past six years.
G Diaries first aired in 2017 with the goal of uplifting the lives of marginalized communities by showcasing their stories and presenting the abundance of their natural resources as well as local efforts to develop their area, while encouraging viewers to do their part by supporting these local communities’ endeavors.
It has won several awards such as the Most Development-Oriented Environmental Program at the Gandingan Awards 2019 and Best Adult Educational and Cultural Program at the Catholic and Mass Media Awards 2019.(MT)
