Daniel Razon named first Luminary awardee at Do More Awards
Daniel Razon, UNTV‘s CEO who has dedicated his life to providing and initiating multitude of public services for free, was named the first Luminary awardee at The Do More Awards ceremony held at the Rizal Ballroom of Shangri-La, Makati on Thursday night, November 28, 2013.
During the awarding ceremony, Razon shared his insight of what it is to do more through a recorded video.
“Doing more is like grabbing every opportunity that you have and not letting it pass. Every opportunity that you have to do good, you grab it,” he said.
Known for his moniker Mr. Public Service, Razon pioneered many public services such as Tulong Muna Bago Balita, free education, mobile radio, mobile school, mobile academy, free clinic, free legal consultation, free bus ride, medical mission and many more.
Being selected among the list of more than hundreds of entries, Razon made it to the finals in The Luminary category, which is one of the eight categories that represent different social fields. Selection is by panel of juries that made up 60% of the finalists’ scores and 40% came from online voting from the public. Razon got 94% of online vote alone in the said category.
The panel consists of eight judges namely Marites Vitug, founder and editor-in-chief of Newsbreak; Senator Bam Aquino, co-founder of Microventures Inc.; Phil Younghusband, co-founder of Younghusband Football Academy; Bianca Gonzales, 2012’s Young Global Shapers by the World Economic Forum; Jim Ayala, founder of Hybrid Social Solutions, Inc.; Apples Aberin, PR Head for Personal Care of Unilever Philippines; Carlos Celdran, acclaimed tourist consultant; and Illac Diaz, Executive Director and Founder of MyShelter Foundation, Inc.
The said awards ceremony coincides with Razon’s 30th anniversary of continuous public service to God and humanity.
Being a luminary himself, Razon finds guidance and inspiration from his mentor Eliseo Soriano, presiding minister to the Members Church of God International, a church organization where Razon is the Vice Presiding Minister.
