The actor has confirmed on his official social media pages that he will be the one bringing the company’s latest offering—limited-edition holiday gift sets—to lucky customers.
He wrote, “Dahil sa sobrang busy ng aming partner riders ngayong season, medyo kailangan na ng backup! Preparing my gears because I will be personally delivering five (5) orders of DingDong’s Christmas Baskets in the coming days.”
Dingdong PH riders are currently using the BMW R 1250 GS for their deliveries. Interested parties can order by messaging them on Facebook.
Items include a tapsilog meal featuring fellow actor Wendell Ramos’ WenDeli tapa, a dozen of John Dough’s Sour Dough pan de sal with Martie’s No B.S. Peanut Butter, and Mamata’s Kitchen Cheese Pimiento—an heirloom specialty whose recipe has been passed down from Dantes’ grandmother to his mother, and eventually to his wife Marian Rivera and their daughter Zia.
The EuroMonkeys member added, “So whether you have been naughty or nice, we'll check your list twice and make sure we deliver the right goodies to your doorsteps as a surprise!”
He started the app-based service to help riders from the entertainment industry displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic: “I have several workmates who lost their jobs in the entertainment industry. And to reveal one part of that whole ecosystem, ’yung riders na gagamitin natin ay yung mga nawalan ng trabaho dito sa industriya namin.”
