Ivana Alawi is continuing the tradition of giving back to those in need to celebrate her career milestones, particularly with her YouTube channel.
The actress recently celebrated having 15 million subscribers last February 2022 and organized a donation drive with the initial goal of giving away 15,000 packs of relief goods. However, due to difficulties in preparing the food – which included Ivana’s favorite champorado that she prepared herself at home – her family was only able to prepare 8,000 bags.
The bags also contained rice, canned goods, Korean snacks, and soap bars from her skincare brand Ivana Skin. Ivana also put in PHP150 per bag, giving away a total of PHP 1.2 million in cash.

“Sobrang thank you sa inyo (Thank you to all) for watching and supporting us and loving us and subscribing to us. Sobrang blessed ako na nandiyan kayo. Super ibabalik namin lahat ng blessings na ibinibigay niyo sa amin, and also the love and support na ibinibigay niyo sa pamilya ko (I feel so blessed that you are all there. I will give back all the blessings you gave us, and also the love and support that you give to my family),” she said.
