Popular teen love team Kim Chiu and Xian Lim were among the Kapamilya celebrities who immediately helped people from flood-affected areas as early as Tuesday, August 7. Despite the strong rains that day, the two went out to buy groceries and took charge in packing the goods at the Chiu’s residence in Quezon City. Together with Kim’s siblings, they took it upon themselves to extend aid without waiting for other organization’s call for help. In her Instagram account, Kim inspired many of her fans to follow suit: “#prayforphilippines #filipinosneedourhelp TULONG TAYO GUYS!!!!”
Kris Aquino also mentioned in her Twitter account that she asked Kim if she needs assistance in distributing the relief goods. But the young actress managed to find others to help her out. “Si Kim Chiu went personally to Marikina, pinuno ang Hummer nya ng donations. I asked if I could help her sa vehicles or PNP assistance no need daw kasi yung mga kagawad helped assist & organize.”
Fans of Kim and Xian were really proud of their team effort in sharing their blessings; and it spurred them to organize their own relief operations. “@chinitaprincess and your other siblings are continuously blessed because you know how to pay it forward and share what you have to others. I'm sure that however distant your parents may be at this time in your lives, you make them so proud to have you as their children. Any parent would be! Our love, admiration and prayers are always yours. May God's protective embrace keep your family safe.” -@realitvfan
