February is the month of giving love and showing people how much you care. Even at the tender age of nineteen, rising star Jasmin Curtis-Smith is no stranger to bringing happiness and hope to others. During the relief operations for Typhoon Maring, for example, the young celebrity worked with World Vision and Habagat response teams to provide relief goods for victims.
As the newest member of Goldilocks family, it is clear that Jasmine’s dedication for community work remains among her top priorities. Together with representatives from the country’s number one bakeshop, the young actress recently visited White Cross Children’s Home to share her affection with kids who need it the most.
Located in the heart of San Juan, the White Cross Children’s Home offers food and shelter to orphaned children. Following with a group tour of the facility, Jasmine led a unigue game to break the ice: a “Trip to Jerusalem” with a twist. Everyone then proceeded with a Valentine’s-themed eating contest, with the new Goldilocks Caramel Pusong Mamon as the yummy fare.
“The kids were racing to finish as many Caramel Pusong Mamon pieces as they could, but it was obvious that they were enjoying the treat as much as the game,” Jasmine Curtis-Smith enthused. “The incredible smiles on their faces and the sound of their laughter – it doesn’t take a lot to elicit that out of them, just time and sincerity,” she further added.
The children then had a chance to display their creativity through a “Decorate Your Cake” contest, personalizing their own 6” round cakes with a variety of colorful (and delicious) toppings. Another fun surprise came when Jasmine Curtis Smith – joined by one of Goldilocks cuddly party mascots Baker Bear – led a birthday song for all February celebrants, making them feel very special indeed. As the event came to a close, Jasmine thanked the children for letting her be part of their wonderful Valentine’s day.
“Jasmine truly exemplifies what it means to be pusong mamon, and we are so Pleased to welcome her into Goldilocks family,” noted Goldilocks Marketing Director Pinky Yee. “As she continues to spread hope and and reach out to children in need, we can all see that Jasmine’s heart as as soft and sweet as our Pusong Mamon,” she concluded.
