While they are not required to voluntarily post their endeavors, it’s still nice that some celebrities maximize their platforms to raise awareness about national matters.
Here are some celebrities who took matters through social media:
Starting with Angeline Quinto who was personally distributing donations (given by her friends) in Nasugbu, Batangas.
Next is Forbes’ ‘Hero of Philanthropy’ Angel Locsin sourced on details about the affected baranggays and the supplies they need.
Anyone here na may na-conduct na assessment kung anong mga kailangan, anu-anong baranggays at ilang families per baranggay? Thank you #Taal

She also posted an Instagram story indicating where people can drop off donations.
Latest meme king Dingdong Dantes, in partnership with Red Cross, encouraged his followers to donate.
Tara, tulong tayo.
We are gathering cash and in-kind donations to assemble 1000 relief packs to be sent through our partners from the Philippine Navy CMOG and the Philippine Red Cross.
Deadline of donation is on… https://t.co/0QKy76haPn

Speaking of partnerships, Anne Curtis is working hand-in-hand with a superstore for a swift delivery of donations to the affected areas.
If you want to know how to help those affected by TAAL.
1. You can buy what’s needed at landers and drop off at the membership counter
2. buy online and use the voucher HELPTAAL.
ALL the items will be directly sent to the PHIL. ARMY for their distribution. pic.twitter.com/pwJtPkbIVP

Meanwhile, pet advocate Heart Evangelista took her ventures with PAWS (Philippine Animal Welfare Society) to Instagram.
Karla Estrada conducted a Bazaar For A Cause where she sold her clothes. All proceeds will go to the Taal Volcano eruption victims.
Lastly, MMFF staple Vice Ganda sent out his prayers via Twitter:
Lord we pray na maging ligtas ang lahat sa anumang maaring pagkasalanta mula sa pagputok ng Bulkang Taal. Amen.
