Vice Ganda spearheads garage sale with Anne Curtis for the benefit of the typhoon victims


082413-Vice_Main.jpgVice Ganda together with his It’s Showtime co-host Anne Curtis organized a garage sale at the Pinoy Big Brother Hall last August 23, 2013 for the benefit of the typhoon Maring victims. In an interview with the comedian, he shared that he has had the idea of having a garage sale for some time now and he figured that it was high time to do it.

Noon ko pa talaga naiisip kung kailan ako maga-garage sale kasi talagang pinamamahayan na rin ng lamok ang mga gamit sa bahay at ito mas makabuluhan pa kaya sabi ko huwag na tayong magpatumpik-tumpik pa. Ito na ‘yung rason para gawin natin ‘to kaya ibenta na para makapagbigay na kaagad kasi ang daming humingi ng tulong pero kulang na kulang pa rin talaga,” he relayed.

Although he was already able to extend a hand to the flood victims already, Vice said that a lot of people are still in dire need of food and supplies, hence, the sale for a cause was organized. “Nagkaroon kasi ako ng pagkakataon na pumunta sa dalawang lugar kung saan nagsta-stay ‘yung mga nasalanta, ang isa sa public school sa Marikina, isa public school sa Mandaluyong. Marami na rin akong naibigay pero sobrang kulang talaga ‘yun sa dami ng nangagailangan don. Pagnakita niyo ‘yung mga sitwasyon ng mga kabataan don nakahiga don sa sahig, nakakadurog ng puso at iisipin mo na kulang na kulang ‘yung naisip naming tulong,” he said.

Vice urged those who have the capacity to help to do so in any way. “Sa lahat ng mga taong may kakayahang tumulong, magpasalamat po tayo sa Diyos dahil hindi tayo ‘yung humihingi ng saklolo ngayon kasi mas masarap ‘yung tayo ‘yung tumutulong kaysa tayo ‘yung humihigngi ng tulong. Kung may kakayahan kang tumulong huwang ka ng mag-isip pa o magaksaya ng panahon, tumulong ka na kara-karaka kasi ang dami talagang humihingi ng tulong ngayon,” he said.

The unkabogable star thanked all those who bought items from the garage sale. “Maraming maraming salamat talaga sa lahat ng sumuporta dito sa sale for a cause namin ni Anne Curtis. May magandang kahihitnatnan po ‘tong ginagawa naming ito dahil maraming matutulungang nasalanta ng bagyo.

Will there be another sale soon? “Biglaan ito eh, overnight lang kami ni Anne na hinalungkat ‘yung mga gamit namin. Pag meron sigurong natira don sa bahay ia-announce na lang siguro namin kung kalian ‘yung susunod pero meron naman siguro,” he stated.
