features real-life story that brings laughter and tears that strengthen the ties that bind all of Kapamilyas wherever they are in the world.
Week after week, the program never fails to deliver unique stories that give inspiration, hope, and life lessons. Each letter read by its host Charo Santos has been a chronicle of the struggles and different experiences of Filipinos of different generations and all walks of life. No other television program has made this much impact on the life and culture of Filipinos as a people.
Year 2016 is a special milestone as â€œMMKâ€ celebrates 25 years of being the Filipino peopleâ€™s diary. To mark its silver anniversary, the program launched a year-long celebration to thank viewers for their continued support, and to pay tribute to all the people who have been part of its success.
The celebration kicked off in â€œASAPâ€ last Sunday (May 29), which brought together some of the letter senders who shared their life journeys with â€œMMK,â€ accompanied by some of the artists who gave life to their stories, including Dawn Zulueta, Gina PareÃ±o, Bea Alonzo, Kathryn Bernardo, and Nora Aunor.
The â€œASAPâ€ special also teased â€œMMKâ€™sâ€ commemorative album a collection of songs that have touched viewers, and soon to be made available in all record stores nationwide.
Viewers can also review the programâ€™s colorful history by visiting the website mmk.abs-cbn.com to reminisce the narratives, teachings, and personalities featured in â€œMMK.â€ A timeline called â€œMMK Through the Yearsâ€ and a section called â€œMMK 25 Memoriesâ€ showcase the most memorable episodes that made a mark on the hearts and minds of its viewers. In another section called â€œiKwento,â€ fans will be able to send their life stories to Charo by writing a letter or uploading a video for a chance to be featured in the program.
Netizens can also join in the celebration by posting â€œLife Linesâ€ on their social media accounts, shareable artcards and video clips containing the most unforgettable lines from different episodes. Check out @MMKOfficial on Twitter and Instagram or www.faceboook.com/MMKOfficial.
To show its heartfelt gratitude to all its letter senders, â€œMMKâ€ will bring them together in â€œMMK Kamustahan,â€ where they will get a chance to interact with Charo and catch up with one another. The first get-together will be held in Davao on July 9, with another leg in Luzon in August.
Charo will also reach out to other parts of the globe, delivering inspirational talks to overseas Filipinos in the â€œKwentuhang Kapamilyaâ€ series. Global Kapamilyas will be given the opportunity to share their experiences living and working abroad. â€œKwentuhang Kapamilyaâ€ will kick off in Madrid, Spain on June 26, and proceed to Hong Kong on July 24. Other legs include New Jersey, USA on September 9, Alberta, Canada on September 11, and Japan on October 16.
