People have been praising Angel Locsin for her consistent philantrophic activities through the years.
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic made her even more active, initiating a fund-raising drive for her sanitation tent project called UniTENTPH. It benefits local government units and hospitals in the metro. As of 8 April, her team has put up 95 hospital tents, 14 sanitation with mister tents in 51 hospitals.
But it’s not all a one-man effort as she revealed that among her donors are Sharon Cuneta who donated P3 million to her cause.
Posting on her IG account (@reallysharoncuneta) on 9 April, Sharon thanked Angel for coming to her defense against bashers.
“Dearest Angel, You didn’t have to. But in truth, it’s sad that in times like these when we should all be coming together to help those in need, to those of us who do help, meron at meron ka pa ring maririnig na masasakit na salita. I know you were hurt for me kaya mo nai-post ito. Thank you, my Angel. And saludo ako sa yo sa walang hanggan mo at walang kapagurang pagtulong sa kapwa natin. Ang hirap din tumulong. Kahit galing sa puso mo, may kokontra pa rin. Pero sabi ng Diyos ‘Do not tire of doing good…’ Sana magkaisa talaga ngayon. God is teaching all of us lessons through this pandemic. Maybe one of them is to be kind to one another and to help in every little way we can even though no one is praised. It’s unbelievable to me how mean some people truly are no matter what their fellow human beings may be going through. God sees. God knows. And HE is the only one worth ‘impressing.’ Magkaisa na po tayo. Peace muna puede? Love you Angel. God bless you and all of us ‘artistas’ who are doing what we can to contribute. Also every single person who does the same kahit di artista. God bless the Philippines,” she wrote.
Angel replied to a comment on her thread on her ongoing project.
“BTW, Ms. Sharon donated a WHOPPING 3 MILLION PESOS para makatulong kahit paano sa overcrowded hospital situation ngayon. Binigay niya ito ng KUSA at AYAW IPAALAM. Pasensiya na po Ms Sharon at nasabi ko ha. Just wanted to share my experience with you and gaano ka ka-charitable,” part of Angel’s IG (@therealangellocsin) comment read.
