JUST IN: ‘Shop and Share’ provides 600 Covid-19 test kits for some of our stranded kababayans!




It was on June 2 when Angel Locsin and Anne Curtis officially relaunched their decade old  “Shop and Share” project to help the government in extending more COVID-19 tests to underprivileged Filipinos who need to be tested during this global crisis. The initiative started in 2009 to help the families affected by Typhoon Ondoy.


Many celebrities and big personalities supported the campaign by donating their personal items from designer bags, jewelry, and clothes, among others. Some of them even sold their pre-loved items themselves to make it less effort for the Shop and Share team, pledging all the proceeds to the project. And because of the overwhelming support Angel and Anne received, not even a full 24 hours since its opening, Shop and Share has raised over P700,000 from the sold products.


Two weeks after its launch, ‘Shop and Share’ announced that they have officially begun and thanked those who have supported the fundraiser. On their official social media accounts, they wrote:




“We’ve officially begun! Because of your overwhelming support we were able to provide 600 Covid-19 test kits for some of our stranded kababayans that reached out to us. This is just the beginning and we promise to do our best to share the donations you have made to our kababayans that need it the most. Maraming maraming salamat po for supporting this cause. Stay tuned for more updates as we wrap up our online store Shop and Share in the next few weeks! #ShopAndShare2020”


Since the coronavirus outbreak, the world urged self-isolation in order to help flatten the curve and reduce transmission. The Philippine government placed the country on lockdown on March 17 and was gradually lifted to a less stricter preventive quarantine, Metro Manila being the last to transition to general community quarantine effective June 1.


Ever since, many celebrities are stepping up to help in their own ways and Angel Locsin is definitely one of the most admirable, who finds all the means to lend a hand to those who need help the most.


Thank you and God bless you, Shop and Share!
