GMA star Marian Rivera has raised more than a hundred thousand pesos (100,000) to help the survivors of super typhoon Yoalanda in Bantayan Island, Cebu. She auctioned off some of her clothes where the proceeds will benefit around 300 fishermen which are beneficiaries of the GMA Kapuso Foundation, Inc.
The charity auction was the culmating activity for the Kapuso Adopt-a-Bangka Project which aims to extends help to affected communities in Northern Cebu. It was held in Lewis Grand Hotel in Clark, Pampanga.
In her instagram account, Marian posted:
"Masaya ako't nakapagbigay tulong na naman tayo sa pamamagitan ng Kapuso Adopt-A-Bangka Project. Mahigit 400 daan na pamilya sa Bantayan Island ng Northern Cebu na ang ating natulungan. Di po natin mararating ang ating pinapangarap na ito kung wala ang ating mga partners na walang sawang nagbigay suporta sa atin. Sa araw po na ito ay opisyal na naming tinatapos ang ikalawa at huling yugto ng ating proyekto. Pagbibigyang tuon na ng aming partner, "Back-to-Sea" ng Bantayan Island ang pag papaigting ng kaalaman ng ating mga beneficiaries upang mas mapalakas pa nila ang kanilang kumunidad at livelihood. Muli, maraming salamat!"
More than 10 Million pesos has been raised for the Bantayan Island beneficiaries since Marian became the campaign's ambassadress shortly after the typhoon devastated the Visayas in November last year.
