“We’ve officially begun! Because of your overwhelming support we were able to provide 600 COVID-19 test kits for some of our stranded kababayans that reached out to us,” wrote Shop and Share on an Instagram post on Saturday, June 20.

“This is just the beginning and we promise to do our best to share the donations you have made to our kababayans that need it the most. Maraming maraming salamat po for supporting this cause. Stay tuned for more updates as we wrap up our online store Shop and Share in the next few weeks!”

The post included photos of the locally stranded Albayanos who were brought home from Metro Manila this week.

The Shop and Share 2020 initiative is a reboot of Anne and Angel’s joint campaign from 2009 where they gathered pre-loved designer and luxury items from local celebrities and donated all proceeds to Philippine Red Cross for their Typhoon Ondoy relief operations. This year, proceeds raised will go to the purchase of COVID-19 rapid test kits.
