Where are our favorite celebrities and what have they done in ECQ? Has it crossed your mind and wonder if they’re stepping up to help the most affected in this pandemic? In this time of crisis, we can’t help but wonder how our icons are using their platform.
Celebrities during ECQ
Because of pop culture, they’ve become an important part of our lives. We always look up to them and most of the time, they influence the way we think and how we view ourselves. We value and have high regard for people who have an impact on our lives. More than anything, these people have empowered us and touched our hearts in ways unimaginable.
These celebrities have shown us what they are truly made up of, their true color and kind soul, and how they are giving back. After we survive this pandemic, they are the ones that will leave a mark in our hearts and are worthy of our support moving forward. Remember these names, follow them if you must, because their legacy deserves to live on.
Angel might not be able to play the role of Darna anymore on the big screen, but she’s showing us who the real-life Darna is. She’s known for her philanthropy after being honored as one of Forbes Asia’s latest Heroes of Philanthropy. Her generosity and selfless acts keep her endeared to the Filipino people.
Asia’s Songbird, on her Golden Birthday, has once again shown us that she has a Golden Heart. Doing a virtual concert was once unimaginable, but she has proven once again her Star Power and bankable appeal raising more than 4.2M for the benefit of Bantay-Bata-163.
Catriona may have passed on the crown, but her legacy lives on. Recently, she has raised $44,000 or P2.2M and donated 60,000 Kilos of rice to 5,000 families in Tondo. She also paid tribute to the health workers heroism during this pandemic by singing John Lennon’s Imagine. That’s the Silver Lining that we’re talking about, Long live the Queen!
Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos
When most love teams seem to be on a hiatus, this real-life couple showed how big their hearts are, raising P300K funds called Pay it Forward PH for PPEs and food for the benefit of two hospitals. LDR is rare in the country but was enforced upon us when the ECQ was implemented.
The couple chose to look on the brighter side. They showed it to us in style and in the most creative way possible by posting their quarantined photos. Such an inspiration to emulate for young lovers out there.
