23 Mar – Angel Locsin recently urged everybody - the celebrities in particular - to help her cause in responding to the current pandemic.
As reported on Rappler, the actress took to Instagram to relay her intention, saying that she, fiancé Neil Arce, and La Belle Fête are planning to set up sleeping tents within hospital premises for the use of health workers in the frontlines who might have issues with accommodations and transportations.
"[We] understand that life is hard right now, so we'll refrain from asking you for financial donations. Instead, we would like to ask you for stuff that you already have," she wrote.
Locsin continued, "To my friends in the industry, maybe you can spare your taping beds for our health workers? Also to everyone reading this, if you have available folding beds that we could borrow, we would greatly appreciate it. We'll name the bed after the donor and you could also write down a note to thank them for their hard work."
Locsin also thanked several celebrity friends like Angelica Panganiban, Anne Curtis-Heussaff, and Bea Alonzo for donating their taping beds right away.
"We acknowledge that this is a challenging time for everyone, but we also know that we, Filipinos, are strong & resilient, especially when united. We made it through Ondoy, Yolanda, Mt. Pinatubo and Taal eruption, and we will surely overcome this as a nation. This is a plea to everyone to support our dear frontliners. Let's help them save lives!" she added.
