November 19th:  The filipino american Apl.de.ap attended to the Annual Credit Suisse Philanthropists Forum 2012  held in Singapore on november 15th.

Apl.de.ap shared his own story as artist and philanthropist during the gala dinner. He explained how he is committed to helping children in his native country, Philippines, through The Apl Foundation by improving their education.

When I see the discrepancy between kids in the Philippines and the US, I feel like I have to give them an opportunity. I was one of those kids and now that I have the voice and power to help, I have to do it.” -Apl

“I like to be hands-on because that’s what motivates me. I like to involved from the ground-breaking to ribbon-cutting to auditing the funds. Just giving money away is a little discouraging because I don’t know where it is going”. – Apl

The 2012 Forum was titled The Pacific Century and Philanthropy: Maximising Donor Impact and reunited more than 100 guests, including Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minster for Finance.
