Home Buddies’ 2nd anniversary celebration kicked off on September 10

Facebook home improvement group “Home Buddies,” born on September 18, 2020, at the height of the pandemic, just celebrated its 2nd anniversary with milestone on-ground and online events.


Mayora Frances Cabatuando, the community’s friendly “budolera,” said she and her “tanods” want to send back the love to their 3.1 million members who helped make Home Buddies the phenomenon that it is today. 

“Home Buddies is a community whose goal is to empower, inspire, and support our fellow Filipinos not just in home-improvement but even beyond. Happy 2nd KapitBirthday, Home Buddies!” Mayora Frances said.


Home Buddies’ 2nd anniversary celebration kicked off on September 10 with a makeover of a SPED classroom at the Pasay City North High School under the Brigada Eskwela program.


"We really admire how the institution (Pasay City North High School) is promoting inclusive education through its special education program so we decided to help them with a classroom makeover. As part of the outreach, we tapped special education experts to help design the room as aligned with the special needs of the students. We wanted the school to be comfortable for every child just like a home – a place where they are supported, nurtured, and empowered as learners and as the future of our country." Cabatuando said.


Capping off the KapitBirthday 2nd anniversary was the online event last September 18 on the Home Buddies Facebook Community page. Hosted by Frances with her fellow PIE Channel jock Erykah Lucas, community members were entertained by the presence of star-studded guests and raffle games and prizes for every “buddy.” These include the popular game with an added Home Buddies twist “Pera O Budol” featuring real budol items from the event’s sponsors.  

The “Pera O Budol'' portion was a real nail biter!


One of the highlights of the KapitBirthday was the surprise guest appearance of celebrity host Luis Manzano.




Singer Ronnie Liang also dropped by the live event to sing for the kapitbahays. 



All in all, it was yet another successful anniversary double event for Mayora Frances and Home Buddies! Congratulations, mga kapitbahay!
