Shop&Share is back! Angel Locsin, Anne Curtis and team relaunch Shop&Share in the hopes of helping out in the efforts to provide mass testing in the country.




These past few months have been tough. The country has been under enhanced community quarantine for more than 60 days until just recently when it has been lifted and some parts of the country transition to Modified ECQ and in some provinces, General Community Quarantine (GCQ). The total number of Covid-19 positive cases has gone up to more than 12,000 already and there’s a high chance that this number will double if we don’t take precautionary measures that’s why people call #MassTestingNowPH on social media.

Mass Testing is what other countries did to control the increasing number of Covid-19. Mass testing will help the authorities to trace and isolate those who are positive of Covid-19, symptomatic and asymptomatic, and stop the widespread of the virus. And in the hopes of helping out in the efforts to provide mass testing in the country, Angel Locsin, Anne Curtis and team relaunch Shop and Share!


Shop and Share was first launched way back 2009 to help those who were affected by Typhoon Ondoy. They reached out to actors, singers, and everyone in the entertainment industry to donate items. These items were auctioned and sold to the highest bidder and after 11 years, they decided to relaunch the said project.




On her Instagram account, Angel Locsin formally announced the launch of Shop and Share 2020. On her post, she calls on her industry friends and fellow artists to support the cause for the benefit of the poorest sector.

“To our friends and fellow artists,

Hi. It’s been a while since we’ve done this — way back in 2009 in fact when we first put up Shop and Share to help those who were affected by Typhoon Ondoy. We had actors, singers and even basketball players donate personal items from designer bags, clothes, jerseys, jewelry, etc., and we auctioned them off on ebay, with all the proceeds going to the Philippine Red Cross.

And, now, we humbly reach out again. These are hard times, truly frightening times for the Filipino people, especially with corona virus cases still on the rise. Many have been doing their part in trying to give hope or just to make each day easier for those who are in need. And the hard truth is they will remain in need as Covid-19 remains the invisible enemy amongst us changing our lives and sadly disrupting livelihoods.

We would like to revisit the idea of artists coming together and helping those who need it the most. This time, with the funds we raise, we would like to purchase test kits and allow testing opportunities for the poorer sectors in the hopes of helping out in the efforts to provide mass testing in the country. 
Yes, in support of mass testing. Because in this way we can make a higher impact, by pushing the TEST-TRACE-ISOLATE/TREAT formula that is the only proven way to defeat the virus.

If you are keen please do let us know. 
We do hope you can join us as we all work together to help flatten the curve in the Philippines in our little way.

God Bless You, 
Team Shop & Share.”
