The aftermath of the recent super typhoon Yolanda left Filipinos, specifically in the Visayas regions devastated. With approximately hundreds killed according to official reports and more still missing, survivors are now in desperate need for food, clothes and shelter.
With this, ABS-CBN Foundation launched the Sagip Kapamilya Telethon for typhoon Yolanda victims. Instilling public service at your favorite ABS-CBN variety programs and talk shows, the telethon started last Saturday, November 9 at the noontime show, “It’s Showtime” where televiewers who want to donate in cash or in kind are asked to call ABS-CBN’s hotlines. The telethon continued to “ASAP” and “Rated K” last Sunday, November 10, as well as in “KrisTV” earlier today, November 11.
Meanwhile, “KrisTV” and “It’s Showtime” hosts sported T-shirts today that campaigns, “Tulong Na, Tabang Na, Tayo Na”. According to Bianca Gonzalez earlier on “KrisTV,” the T-shirts will be available at an ABS-CBN charity concert that is yet to be announced.
