OGIE ALCASID Donates Toy Collection To Help Raise Funds For COVID-19 Mass Testing Initiative
Ogie Alcasid is donating some of his toys in order to aid fellow Kapamilya artist Angel Locsin's initiative to raise funds for COVID-19 mass testing in the country.
"Been collecting these for over 24 years. Time to let go of most toys so someone else may take care of them and at the same time people will be tested for [COVID-19]. Just helping an angel with her advocacy," the MYX Magna awardee wrote alongside a series of photos featuring his vast collection of Star Wars, DC, and Marvel items.
On May 19, Angel—together with celebrity friends Bea Alonzo and Anne Curtis—relaunched Shop & Share, "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." The initiative was first introduced in 2009 to help those affected by Typhoon Ondoy.
