18 Aug – Moira dela Torre recently announced that she is giving away her first electric guitar and bag of art supplies for charity.
The singer posted a photo of herself with the said guitar, which she said was the first electric guitar that husband Jason Marvin gifted to her, and wrote, "This season, I started learning how to balance helping others and taking care of my mental health. My cousin @jbear.a taught me a new craft over the summer: watercolour painting-- a craft I had been meaning to learn but never had the time for and it has been so therapeutic for me."
"Another therapy, as always, is learning an instrument and this time, Jason taught me to write with an electric guitar. What used to give them joy, they graciously shared with me and it helped hone my creativity and helped calm my anxieties," she added.
dela Torres stated that she had the idea "through the process of getting lost in art", and collaborated with Carousell PH in giving away the two items that have helped her so much mentally - in hopes that it might also help others find the calm she has.
The singer revealed that all proceeds will go to Silungan Ng Pag-asa - a non-profit organisation that gives children in need of medical care a home while in treatment.
"Once again, thank you Carousell for creating this avenue. Joy is shared to me. I experience not just joy but healing in the process. I get to share my joy with others and in return, have found creative ways to be able to help others more. In #MakingTheBest of what we are given with, we are able to create this safe space where Everyone Wins," she added.
