Lola Honorata, a 95-year-old elderly from San Juan, Laur, Nueva Ecija, accidentally used as "panggatong" rolls of P1,000 bills. All in all, she burned P14,000 worth of her savings.
Her granddaughter, SarahLie Gahis De Guzman, shared the photos on social media, in the hopes that they would reach Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho (KMJS), and perhaps other platforms like Raffy Tulfo In Action.
According to Guzman, she accidentally threw the bundles of money into the fire.
The incident happened when her grandmother was cooking. Hopefully, the Bangko Sentral would replace the damaged bills.

Stories of grandmothers who need help or who did something accidental due to old age, almost always end up being viral. Filipinos give respect to their elders and are very particular about taking care of the senior members of the family.
In one story, an 83-year-old grandmother sought the help of a rider and asked for food. She was already very hungry, which was why she went to the rider and asked for P5. She then thanked the kindhearted rider for the help rendered.
Another grandmother was praised by netizens after she was seen going around, selling her own handcrafted crocheted products. At her age, she still manages to sell products.
