Pinoy vloggers using platform to help victims of massive typhoon and flooding

- Advertisment -

Popular vloggers, streamers, and social media influencers are using their platforms on the internet to help victims of a series of typhoons and floodings in some parts of the Philippines. 

Some are raising funds from their revenues online, while others are launching donation drives to further help the victims. 

“Nung medyo humina yung ulan, pumunta ako sa Rizal para makapag-abot ng tulong. Yun lang kasi ang kaya kong gawin at yung kaya kong puntahan ng mga oras na yun. Mag-isa lang akong nag-drive noon. Naawa kasi ako sa kanila. Lagi kong iniisip na paano kung ako yun? Paano kung family ko ang naapektuhan?” Jelai Andres, who has over 2.5 million followers on Facebook alone, told Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (One at Heart, Jessica Soho). 

Meanwhile, Online Streamer Elyson ‘Ghost Wrecker’ Caranza, said he himself has experienced poverty when his father died and his family was forced to sell their properties to survive. 

“Ayoko ma-experience yun ng iba. Kaya ako ngayon na nakabawi-bawi na kami, gusto kong tumulong para hindi ma-experience ng iba yung na-experience nmin. Kaya siguro ganito na lang yung urge namin ni Carla [“Queen Wrecker” Golosinda] tumulong kasi naranasan namin yung hirap,” he said. 

For her part, Carla said that there were people they know that were asking for help from them. “Buhay yung nakataya kaya parang may kurot sa puso namin kapag wala kaming ginawa that time,” she added. 

She further added that she, along with her partner, Elyson, wants to utilize their platform to help as many people as possible.
