Vice Ganda received the 1 Million pesos gift that Joel Cruz promised last Magpasikat2019 0week on It's Showtime Monday, November 4.
Last October 26, the Lord of Scents promised that he will share his blessings to the alopecia patients if Vice Ganda does not win in this year’s Magpasikat.
"In case na 'di ka manalo, ako na lang magbibigay ng 1 million para sa inyong advocacy. You deserve it," he stated then.
According to him, he came back because he really was touched with the patients' story and decided to give Vice the money, still.
"Ang nasabi ko nung time na 'yon, 'pag 'di ka nanalo, ako na lang magbibigay ng one million sa'yo kasi naawa ako don sa mga alopecia patients," Joel said.
"Ako mismo nagpapasalamat sa Taas na buti hindi ako ‘yung may gano’ng sakit lalong-lalo na ‘yung walo kong anak so I just have to share the blessing," he added.
Since the Unkabogable Star has already given the money to the organization, Joel said that Vice can decide where he would use the money he gave him.
According to Vice, he decided to use the money for the victims of the recent earthquakes in Mindanao.
"Itong one million, pamimili ko na lang 'to ng ipapadala ko sa Mindanao. Ang laki ng tipak ng mga Kapamilya nating Pilipino do’n ang nangangailangan ng tulong," he said.
Despite wanting to go there personally, the management has advised him to stay in the city because of a "high risk," but he promised that the victims will receive the help and that he will be adding to what Joel gave.
"Hindi po ako personal na makakapunta sa Mindanao pero personal pong darating diyan ‘yung tulong na ipapadala ko worth one million galing kay Joel Cruz at dadagdagan ko po ng galing naman sa akin," he stated.
The Unkabogable Star then encouraged the earthquake victims to never lose hope for there will be people who will come for their rescue.
"Kapit lang po. Marami po kayong Kapamilyang Pilipino na sasaklolo at tutulong sa inyo. 'Wag po kayong mawawalan ng pag-asa. Nandito po kaming lahat. Gagabayan at sasaklolohan po namin kayo diyan, mga Kapamilya namin sa Mindanao," he said.
