Since raising P3.3 million with her campaign, "Pagkain para sa Pinoy," which aims to raise money for "a lot of Filipinos who won't be able to rely on their normal sources of income" during the quarantine-period, including "our favorite taho, dirty ice cream, and banana cue vendors," Bela has been busy talking with local government units, fellow celebrities, and fans who have volunteered to help in facilitating the distribution of the packages.
