[“We at Wowowin are doing it for frontliners who are helping us, especially the nurses, caregivers, and doctors who are risking their lives.”]
Willie added, “Hindi ho ganoon kadali ang ginagawa nila para lang ho tulungan ang ating mga kababayan na dumadaan po sa pagsubok na ito, na coronavirus na ito. Sama-sama ho tayo rito, tulong-tulong. Hindi po kami titigil. Ako, hindi ako titigil po ng pagtulong.“
[“What they’re doing is not easy, helping our countrymen go through the coronavirus. We’re all in this together, helping each other. We won’t stop. I won’t stop helping.”]
Aside from personally donating P1 million, he also raised another P1 million and 20,000 face masks from a sponsor, and pledged cough medicine from another.
