Kris Aquino was impressed with Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis’s efforts to raise funds for victims of Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng via an online auction. Kris, who contributed to Sagip Kapamilya’s relief operations by convincing a number of advertisers and multinational corporations to donate millions of pesos in goods and cash and by helping distribute goods herself, was impressed by how the girls didn’t think twice about sharing their time and money with needy kababayans.
Malaki talaga yung impact nung example na ibinigay sa akin ni Anne at ni Angel dun sa online auction nilang Shop and Share kasi I’m matulungin but I don’t do it myself. I donate a lot and I have a lot of scholars. But sila, they went out of their way to do the website themselves and to get the donations themselves, yung personally involved talaga. And doon nabilib ako kasi sabi ko nga siguro yun ang enthusiasm of youth ngayon. And you know, they managed to do a lot within a short time. They were already able to raise $18,000. So just imagine kung anong kayang gawin ng youth tulad nila,” Kris exclaimed.
The Queen of Talk has praised Anne and Angel every chance she gets on her shows Showbiz News Ngayon and The Buzz. Kris was further inspired to monitor the progress of Shop and Share since she was the one who wrote the introduction on the website apart from donating some of her items for the charity auction.
