The Kapamilya star then shared the link where netizens can donate and monitor the amount raised for the vendors and their families.
“Please help and share this link and let’s try to hit or surpass the target in one week because our local workers have all already been affected starting today. thank you. Twitter, let your magic work please,” she posted.
