Marcelito shared that his experiences growing up inspired him to give back to others is. He said, "Kailangan kong tumulong sa tao."

Marcelito said he also didn't have a house when he was young and he knew the struggles of living in the streets. Now that he has achieved much in life, he said he is taking the opportunity to give help.

"Kasi na-realize ko, noong bata ako wala rin akong saktong tirahan, kumbaga isa rin akong palaboy, kung saan-saan ako nakatira. Kaya kapag [naalala] ko ang nakaraan, hindi ko maipaliwanag, kailangan kong tumulong sa tao. Para maiparamdam ko man lang kung ano ang narating ko ngayon ay maibalik ko sa kanila," Marcelito said.

Marcelito began his mission by building a home for Nanay Aurora Verano of Quezon province. The elderly woman had resided in a dilapidated house for ten years and was emotional when the singer handed over to her her new house. Marcelito built the house in four days.

"Yung bahay ni nanay kasi 'yan ang una. Pero ngayon may ginawa kami halos pangatlo na, may pang-apat pa na ginawa namin," Marcelito said.

In an earlier vlog, the singer revealed that he uses the earnings of his YouTube channel to fund his project.
