Comedian Chad Kinis honored his late friend and fellow YouTube vlogger Lloyd Cafe Cadena by uploading a vlog last Tuesday, September 8, wherein he gave out free tablets to construction workers who have children taking online classes.
“This is a very special vlog na gagawin po natin ngayon because this vlog is, of course, dedicated po for a friend, a great friend na tumulong sa akin kung paano ako napunta sa YouTube,” Chad said.
“A great friend who inspired me a lot sa kanyang mga contents, who made me laugh, who made me happy. Hindi lang ako, alam ko pati kayo pinasaya niya at nag-iwan ng isang magandang legacy at leksyon sa buhay,” he further described Lloyd.
The comedian further explained that he is doing the vlog to commemorate the generosity of Lloyd, who is best known for producing vlogs that feature him helping other people in need.
“This is a time to honor your deeds and, of course, to continue what you have started,” Chad said. “I’m doing this vlog for Lloyd Cadena, kasi alam naman natin na si Lloyd is very fond of helping people, lalo na doon sa mga nag-aaral.”
In collaboration with vlogger Jhei Alliana, Chad aims to give free tablets to children who are currently taking online classes. He also added that the revenue earned from his vlog will be given to Lloyd’s family.
“Gusto namin makatulong sa’yo, gusto namin makatulong sa ibang tao,” he said. “Gusto namin matuloy ang magandang nasimulan mo. Lloyd, thank you for being an inspiration to us.”
Although admitting the tablets are not enough, Chad vows to give out more in his next set of vlogs.
“Isa si Lloyd sa nagtulong sa akin how to share the blessings and be generous, sa friends, sa nangangailangan. So, I’m gonna be giving these tablets, of course, sa mga nangangailangan,” Chad said.
He started by giving out two tablets to two personal assistants who have siblings back home who are struggling with online classes.
After his two giveaways, he went outside his house to give out four tablets for people constructing his house who all have children taking online classes.
“Just keep on sharing good vibes, happiness, and, kung meron kayo, help other people,” Chad said. “That’s the lesson we have learned. Lloyd, I love you so much.”
“I just want to share the blessings that we are receiving,” he began to conclude on the vlog. “Kasi ‘eto ‘yong pinakamagandang ginawa ko sa unang upload after Lloyd’s passing, para to honor this generosity and to honor his name,”
“Lloyd, I love you so much. Don’t worry kasi we will continue giving happiness through your inspiration, through your legacy, through the hope that you’re giving us. Ikaw ang nagbigay sa akin ng paniwala and I continue to give happiness and share my blessings to others,” he told his great friend.
“Life is short, let’s live life to the fullest, that’s why maging mabuti tayo sa bawat kapwa natin,” he reminded his viewers.
