Daiana Menezes may be Brazilian by blood, but she is Filipino by heart. She writes on her birthday fundraiser page: “[I’ve lived] in the Philippines for 13 years and I can’t just watch what is happening to the people of the country that I love.”
And that is why, for her birthday month, the actress-model has set up a fundraiser that aims to feed 2,500 Filipino families that have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis. “Unemployment is just one of the known problems we face today due to this pandemic, we have to take action in addressing this raising concern, helping one another is a start” — Daiana wrote on her Instagram page. Her birthday is on June 20th.
Daiana’s birthday campaign, called Live from GCQ with Love, aims to raise 1 million pesos. This will help feed 2,500 Filipino families at an estimated allocation of P400 per family. It’s a big amount, but with the help of kind-hearted fellow Filipinos who have some to spare, it’s not impossible. For a minimum amount of P100, you can help make a change in these families’ lives.
