Scarlet Snow Belo is raising funds to buy face masks for Filipino health workers, the wonder child announced on Sunday, March 22.
On Instagram, Scarlet shared links to a bank account and a G-cash account where people can send their cash donations as she urged her followers to support the cause.
Just a day after it was launched, Scarlet, in a separate post, thanked those who had donated as she shared that her parents, Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho, were able to buy boxes of N95 face masks using the money raised through her fundraiser.
"Daddy has been sending them out hurriedly and making sure they get to the right people. Please continue to give so we can all help our courageous and hard-fighting frontliners. I will share pictures of the people who received our gifts when we get them. I love you!" she wrote as a caption.
Scarlet Snow asked me why we kept giving away masks to others. I explained to her that it’s because they are needed by the superheroes who are fighting the Coronavirus to keep us safe. I pray that she will understand and remember this lesson she’s learning now, that she would grow up to be appreciative, generous, and aware of her social responsibilities of charity and accountability. I really pray that this impacts her character when she gets older.
Earlier, her mother, dermatologist-to-the-stars Vicki, offered to donate all of Belo Medical Group's remaining stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals fighting the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
