After participating in the London Marathon on April 22, actress Anne Curtis said that she is donating over P1 million for the welfare of the children of Marawi who were displaced during the war.
In a post on Instagram, the female star shared that she will be sharing an amount equal to what has been raised through her fundraising efforts, which amounted to P547,249.
“Thank you to everyone that donated. As promised, I shall match this amount for a total of 1,014,498. (Thank you sa mga nag last minute donation). We reached 603 percent more than my target and I have all of YOU to thank,” she said.
Curtis joined the international marathon to raise funds for the causes of UNICEF Philippines with an initial target of P84,000. However, she was able to gain more funds than expected.
“Maraming salamat po… but the true winners here are the children of Marawi. I was able to see photos from the Country Representative of @unicefphils Ms. Lotta Sylwander when she did a site visit and that led me to dedicate and fundraise for them,” she said.
