Angel Locsin has successfully ended her fundraiser, dubbed #UniTENTweStandPH, with “full and grateful heart.” 

On both Instagram and Twitter,  "The General’s Daughter" star announced that she triumphantly raised more than 10.9 million pesos in cash donations.

“Because of your overwhelming support, we are happy to announce that we have sufficiently funded the #UniTENTweStandPH campaign,” she said in a video.

Having reached enough funds to build more than 150 tents in several hospitals, the 34-year-old actress said she would no longer be accepting cash donations. 

While she has ended her fundraiser, she reassured the public that she would still continue putting up tents for frontliners with the rest of the money that she has with her. 

“With a full and grateful heart, we are now ending the fundraising and will no longer accept CASH donations through PayPal, Paymaya, or bank account,” she added. 

Sharing how far the donations could go, she said: “Binuo po ang #UniTENTweStandPH para po makatulong kahit papano sa overcrowding situation sa hospital, sa mga pasyente hindi na po nagagamot, sa mga health workers na hindi nabibigyan ng tamang proteksyon, sa mga pasyenteng nahahalo sa ibang mga cases. Ayun po ang dahilan kung bakit po tayo nandidito.”

Exercising transparency to the public, Angel also showed the breakdown of payments so far via the video she shared on social media. 

It was last March 25 when the Kapamilya star started her fundraiser which seeks to help hospitals “accommodate more patients who need immediate treatments while also prioritizing the safety of our health workers” by building additional tents. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

#UniTENTweStandPH Campaign to help solve overcrowding in hospitals. To help stop the spread of the corona virus disease (COVID-19) and due to the overcrowding in public and private hospitals, we are launching a fund-raising campaign here in gogetfunding.com to help set up additional tents for patients. The objective is to accommodate more patients who need immediate treatments while also prioritizing the safety of our health workers. As of now, we are targeting to set up at least 2 tents (12x24 meters) in seven hospitals which recently requested for our help: 1. South City Hospital and Medical Center (Daang Hari, Bacoor City) 2. Las Piñas Doctors Hospital 3. Las Piñas City Medical Center 4. St. Frances Cabrini Hospital and Medical Center (Sto. Tomas, Batangas) 5. UniHealth Parañaque Hospital and Medical Center 6. Binakayan Hospital and Medical Center (Kawit, Cavite) 7. PNP Hospital Each tent would cost around Php50,000 as per our experience when we set up tents at the Taguig Pateros District Hospital. If this campaign will be a success, we are hoping to reach other hospitals in Luzon and eventually in other parts of the country. I have avoided asking for financial donations but for now, it is best that we gather more resources and funding to be able to widen the reach, service and sustainability of this project. I would appreciate anything you can offer for this cause to help our fellow Filipinos survive this difficult time. Thank you so much in advance. ANGEL LOCSIN Link in bio💋
