Maine Mendoza Starts Donation Drive to Help Employees Who Are Out of Work Due to Lockdown

Eat Bulaga host and actress Maine Mendoza just launched an online donation drive for workers who are affected by the enhanced community quarantine over the entire Luzon.

On Twitter, she introduced the drive and wrote: “Hi everyone! Given the difficult situation we are all facing, I thought of starting the DoNation drive today. This is to help the employees who are not allowed to work because of the community lockdown.”

She included a link to the website for the drive wherein she pledged to send PHP 1,000 per affected household for food groceries and other basic necessities.

“This also leads me to the realization that we can all help, in our own little ways, to at least make things easier to those who need it the most. If you want to play a part, you can spare a little amount from your pockets that will surely go to those in need. Our share, no matter how big or small, will go a long way,” she said on the website.

“I will personally facilitate all the donations and I will TRY my best to accommodate as many people as I can. I will also provide proof of transactions to the donors for transparency purposes if they wish. Again, your share, no matter how big or small, will surely go a long way. Let’s DO this!” she added.

Her initiative has since gone viral online. In just 7 hours, she announced that she has reached the maximum number of online cash transfers and will resume the following day.

To those who need assistance or want to help, visit the DoNation Drive website.
