In a segment episode of Wowowee, the show host Willie Revillame asked how much the actual donation was of people with kind heart to Sagip Kapamilya. Upon learning that the full cash donation amounted to 26 million pesos in cash aside from good and materials, Willie Revillame issued a live statement.
The Wowowee host said that his birthday is on the 27th, (no month was mentioned) and with this served as some sort of a signal. The host later on said that he will make the total cash donation to 27 million pesos which means that he is donating 1 million to all the fellow Filipinos who suffered from the wrath of typhoon Ondoy.
Angel Locsin was earlier announced to have given some 500 thousand pesos and Marian Rivera also said to have donated 100 thousand as well as Aiai Delas Alas. Other stars who have not been announced to have given cash have given their lives to save neighbors and other victims.
Gerald Anderson was said to have carried his body and swam in the mud flood to save a few neighbors caught up in the human deep waters. Jericho Rosales on the other hand used his surfboard to sail other people away from killer cold waters in strong current. That day was the most unforgettable to many of us not just because of the tragedy but also because we showed the world what Filipinos are. Strong and united.
