19 Mar - Bela Padilla is elated to announce that her fundraising campaign has now accumulated more than P3 million.

As reported on Push, the actress shared the good news on Twitter, saying that someone has donated P2 million to the fundraiser dubbed "Pagkain para sa Pinoy".

"We are now at 3.3 [million] pesos," she announced, adding three hearts and prayer hands emojis.

The good news came just a day after Padilla revealed that they have hit a million pesos in just several days since she announced her intention, adding that she would be closing the fundraising account at midnight so that she can calculate how much food that they can donate using the money.

Last week, the actress expressed her thoughts about the lockdown of Metro Manila in response to COVID-19, saying that she is concerned over the fate of street vendors and the poor living in the area. She then suggested starting a fundraiser online to help those who are most in need during the trying times.
