"What will you do with the 1 Million pesos? And my answer was I don't know. But one thing I'm sure of the blessing will not stop. The blessing will not stop on me. And that's what I said to the judges and it did not. After winning the 1 million pesos it became 200 wheelchairs, 2 hundred crunches, and 200 white canes from people around Metro Manila. It was given to a local church given to different student organizations which I love the most because they became a part of my life. The blessings did not stop on me..... Being the happiest Pinoy is a responsibility it's a continuous responsibility to be an inspiration for others..... The Blessing did not stop on me." ~Richardson Navor, Happiest Pinoy 2015 Winner
