The recent YouTube screening of Resorts World Manila’s ‘Ang Huling El Bimbo‘ has announced that the show has raised a whopping total of PHP 12M in donations for ABS-CBN’s ‘Pantawid ng Pag-ibig’ charity.
The 48-hour fundraising premiere features iconic Eraserheads songs and ran for over 2 hours, with short intervals of creatives and thespians urging viewers to donate.
The show also garnered over 7 million views from budding stage fans and theater enthusiasts alike.
Kami ngayo'y lumilipad at nasa langit na…dahil sa tindi ng inyong naging suporta! Salamat sa lahat ng nag-donate! Marami po tayong matutulungan dahil dito. #AngHulingElBimbo2020 #RWManila #PantawidNgPagibig
Despite the show screening for only 2 days from May 9 to 10, donations apparently kept pouring in until May 15. If this isn’t a clear testament of PH’s support of arts – if we’re just given more opportunities – we don’t know what is.
