In Time for his husband's birthday, Lani Mercado headed the bloodletting project of Senator Bong Revilla Jr.
"This is our second year of doing this. We had organized same event last year and it turned out well so we decided to do it annually," the Revilla's matriarch said.
The senator celebrated his birthday Wednesday, September 24, 2008.
The bloodletting project is a personal project of Senator Bong in partnership with the different hospitals located in Pasig.
"Anybody who will donate blood will get blood for free," Lani said. "And then, if anybody goes to us and ask for blood we can give it for free."
According to Lani, this project of Senator Bong is an original project of Purposeful Stewardship Institute, a group where Lani is a member.
Last month, Senator Bong convened some of the press people to have a small dinner and talk. Many thought that was the initial way of the senator to express his plans in running for the 2010 elections.
But for Lani, she said: "Basta umiikot lang kami we're weighing what's going to happen. There is still no final decision because there are a lot of factors to consider. So far he is just continuing his work as a senator and that's it."
When asked if the senator has plans to run for a higher position, she said: "Kung yun ang pulso ng tao. He might say I want to run but then people might not like him so he needs to consider the people's want also. Kung sino ang makakasama niya and is he going to transfer or stay in Lakas. Maraming factors so pinag-aaralang mabuti ang lahat."
