On November 17, 2008, at the government employee’s flag raising ceremony at the Rizal Triangle Multi Purpose Center, Olongapo City Mayor James ‘Bong’ Gordon Jr. commended the two children who have proven themselves as worthy role models even at their young age.

Brandon Lee Boholst, four (4) years old, returned a wallet that he found while riding the LRT in Metro Manila with his mother, Honnie Joan Boholst, on the way to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH), where his father, Mark, is being treated for leukemia.

They went to radio station DZBB to announce the find and sought the owner of the wallet who later showed up and expressed his gratitude to Brandon Lee and his mother.

Since the incident, and after being featured in a news program on TV, the family has received several help from concerned viewers. The Philippine National Red Cross, led by Senator Richard Gordon, extended help to the family, particularly in connection with Mark’s case.

Mayor Gordon gave Brandon Lee a commendation and a cash incentive for his exemplary attitude.

“Kung yung ibang tao, lalo na kung nangangailangan, hindi na iyon sinoli. Ngunit ibinalik pa rin nila yung wallet kahit na nangangailangan sila,” said City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) head Gene Eclarino.

“Yan ang tinuturo sa mga kabataan ngayon; maging role models at i-imbibe ang mga values tulad ng honesty para maging isang mabuting mamamayan sa lipunan,” Eclarino added.

Meanwhile, Rovi Danielle Oregas, a grade-6 student from Olongapo City Elementary School (OCES) returned an expensive digital camera that she found during the recently held PNP Marathon.

Mayor Gordon also gave her a cash incentive and a commendation.

“Huwaran talaga ang mga batang ito pagdating sa honesty. Sana sa mga panahong ito, bata man o matanda ay tularan ang kanilang halimbawa,” Mayor Gordon said.
