Liza Soberano turned 24 years old this January 2022 and is holding a 24-hour fundraiser to raise at least Php24,000 to help save children from hunger. This activity falls under Save the Children Philippines’ newest fundraising initiative called Kindness Circle and donations collected will support the health and nutrition programs of the organization.
Kindness Circle encourages people to form a group and think of a creative fundraiser to support different programs for thousands of children. An online garage sale, an online concert, or a birthday fundraiser are among the activities that can be done to support this campaign.
“A simple act of kindness can start a ripple of change. In the past years, we have received so much support from individuals who started their own fundraisers which were generously supported by their family and friends,” shares Judy Malabanan, Individual Giving Manager of Save the Children Philippines.
The first Kindness Circle is formed by one of the ambassadors of the organization, Liza Soberano. For her birthday this year, Soberano wanted to start her Kindness Circle with her fans through a flash fundraiser held today, January 24. The fundraiser, which can be found here, will only be open for 24 hours and aims to raise at least Php24,000 – a symbolic donation for her 24th birthday.
“When I was told about this project, I immediately knew that I wanted my fans to be part of my Kindness Circle. They have been so supportive of me and this is something special that I hope we can do together,” Liza shares when asked about her birthday fundraiser that will support Save the Children programs that seek to end child hunger and malnutrition.
As of 12nn, 12nn, the #LizaSoberano24 Kindness Circle fundraiser has already reached 209% of their target! Thank you so much to everyone who donated and joined in this meaningful celebration of @lizasoberano’s birthday.
Other groups that have expressed their interest so far in forming their Kindness Circle include fans clubs of international celebrities, choir groups, and journalists, among others. Anyone can form a Kindness Circle by visiting the Save the Children Philippines website.
