Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo are calling for donations as they prepare to send a truckload of relief goods to the Typhoon Ulysses victims in Cagayan.
Mercado announced their effort on her Instagram page last Wednesday, Nov. 18, alongside photos of the large “StarTruck.”
Along with the truck, the two are also already preparing 1,000 bags of relief goods. They are inviting others to donate as well since there is still room for more items.
Montery donations can be transferred to the following bank accounts:
Jan Kristoffer E.
Meanwhile, in-kind donations should be dropped off at 128 Animat Bldg., Maginhawa St., Teachers Village, Diliman, Quezon City. Those interested in helping should send their donations before the couple’s team heads for Cagayan next Friday, Nov. 27.
Aside from giving donations, the actress also encouraged others to support their effort through her and Trillo’s cat cafe called Litterbucks. The cafe will use 50% of their sales to buy relief goods for those affected by the recent typhoon.
“Wala pong maliit na tulong (There is no help too little)! YOUR HELP WILL GO A LONG WAY,” she assured her followers.
Trillo also shared their initiative on his own page, noting that the vehicle is a 25-ton truck.
“Kung may sobra kayo, pwedeng pwede kayong sumali!” he said. “Dream, Believe, DONATE.”
(If you have excess, you can join!)
The couple have already raised P50,000 as of 12 midnight yesterday, Nov. 19.
