Mark Lorenze Bas showed true selfishness when he bartered his 1993 Mitsubishi Lancer through the Cebu Barter Community in exchange for goods to be given to the poor.
His car fetched a substantial P125,000 worth of foods, which included noodles, canned goods, and sacks of rice.
On Bas' Facebook account, he posted a message to those who are in the Orphanage and considered the poorest of the poor, and those who are in need.
He said that they must not doubt, and if they need help, they would just send him a message and he will deliver the goods to their doorstep.

As per Cebu Daily News, Bas stated that he experienced hardships in life, which was why he also wanted to help those who are in need.
"We were really poor to the point that we would ask for leftover rice and pork lard from our neighbors so we could eat. But most of the time, we ate bananas for breakfast and lunch."
In a previous KAMI report, a mother was very happy when she was finally able to buy her son a cellphone that he could use for online classes.
Barter is the traditional way of exchanging products in the Philippines. One party to a barter can offer his goods in exchange for the goods belonging to another.
