In the Philippines, it is known to many Filipinos that the funds for mass testing is not enough.
Luckily, there are people who are dedicated and willing to help at all times. One of them is Angel Locsin who has been doing extra efforts to combat the virus.
As we all know, Angel already raised over 11 Million pesos and set up tents inside the hospital facilities to cater all the frontliners.
Actually, she was able to put up a total of 246 tents all over the 135 hospital she have chosen.
And now, it seems like the actress is unstopable to do everything she could just to help her dear country.
This time, Angel together with her fellow celebrities, is raising funds that aims to help the mass testing.

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.
Mass testing is the process where all the PUI and PUM patients will be tested rapidly.
With that being said, Angel is selling one of her luxurious car that will be given to the funds.
She is selling her 2015 Dodge Durango for her highly-anticipated launch of her Shop and Share initiative.
Although the official date has yet to release, their Instagram page is already up.
Angel posted, “We will officially launch SOON with some exciting pre-loved items from your favorite celebrities! Please visit www.shopandshare.store to sign up for notifications when we go live!”
On the other hand, Anne Curtis is also supporting this project even that she is in Australia.
Anne is selling her Chanel Cruise Boy North South Handbag 2019.
