MANILA, Philippines -- Kapamilya host Boy Abunda showed his love for mother, Lesing, with his latest campaign "Make Your Nanay Proud."

On Tuesday, Abunda launched the project, which aims to encourage Filipinos to be good citizens to make their mothers proud.

"Malapit po ito sa aking puso. Dahil hindi lingid sa kaalaman ng publiko kung gaano ako ka-devoted sa aking ina," says Abunda, whose mother is suffering from dementia.

With the help of both public and private agencies, MYNP will be starting its projects soon.

"We are planning to build a Bahay Ni Nanay, parang museo siguro. Parang bahay kung saan ang mga anak ay pwedeng pumunta at may lugar kami kung saan pwede kang maghulog ng sulat sa iyong ina," Abunda added.

Abunda's project was supported by other celebrities, including actress-model Angel Aquino, who was also present at the launch.

"I believe in Tito Boy and his undertaking also because of my mother," Aquino said.

The nationwide launch of MYNP will happen on Mother's Day, May 11, 2013.
