Just last month, Tatay Ryan from Manila, Philippines has been dubbed as the ‘selfless father’ after pictures of him watching his daughters enjoying fried chicken at Jollibee went viral on social media.
Apparently he didn’t get himself anything because he was too poor and had just enough money for his daughters, Rose Ann and Rose Mae. His story instantly went viral with over 73k shares on Facebook and it has captured the attention of Jollibee.
So, Jollibee planned a surprise for Ryan and his daughters. On their Facebook, it was written:
“Do you remember the selfless father who was spotted by a customer feeding his children at a Jollibee branch in Manila? Last Tuesday March 28, we decided to give him and his two daughters a triple surprise treat!”
First, they treated Ryan to an all-paid grocery shopping spree at Robinsons Supermarket in Ermita Manila where he bought all the groceries his family needed.
Besides the goods in the trolley, Ryan also took home some gift certificates from Jollibee so that Ryan and his daughters can create more precious memories together at the restaurant. Awww!
The next surprise in line for them was a joint birthday and graduation celebration for Rose Ann and Mae!
It was hosted at the Jollibee Pritil branch. The smiles on their faces are just priceless!
Birthday celebration is not gonna be complete without birthday presents. So, Ryan and his daughters each received a birthday present! #Happykid
During the celebration, the family was also entertained by Jollibee’s Ambassador, Christopher Valentin who performed magic tricks for the children.
Of course Jollibee treated them with their delicious fried chicken! And this time, Ryan gets to enjoy his own set of meal! Such a heartwarming scene!
When it’s time to give a heartfelt thank-you message, Ryan couldn’t hold back his tears after what Jollibee has done for his family.
This kind gesture from Jollibee has gone viral with over 93k shares in just 5 days. Netizens had also praised Jollibee for reaching out to Ryan’s family and provided help when they needed the most.
“I’m really happy to see this news Jollibee. Keep up the good work and may god bless you,” a netizen said.
“Thank you Jollibee for giving Ryan and his daughters an unforgettable day like this. I salute you,” another netizen commented.
