Seven days after launching DoNation Drive, Maine Mendoza revealed they have gathered ₱587,677.92 now being sent to 587 families through mobile money service.
“Recipients are randomly picked thru the DoNationDrive’s email but I must admit to be focusing more on professions that are greatly affected by the “enhanced community quarantine”/Corona Crisis,” she wrote on the official website of her campaign.
These include public vehicle drivers of tricycle, pedicab, jeepney, taxi, and UX express to motorists from different ridesharing and delivery service companies. Maine is also extending help to senior citizens, unemployed, working students, single parents, and pregnant moms. Of course, frontliners like receptionists, nurses, security guards also received donation. She didn’t forget barkers, construction workers, street/market vendors, street sweepers, house helpers, maintenance staff, service crews, and factory workers.
“Yes, I am writing down all the recipients (with their names and professions) to avoid any confusion and for record-keeping purposes. If you have any questions or clarifications in relation to this, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment,” she added.
Maine thanked people for the overwhelming support and kind donations.
“But it does not stop here, I shall continue sending financial assistance to as many families as I can,” she said. “I just want to keep you all posted with what’s happening with our donations. With all that’s going on, we need to know how we can contribute to help others in this challenging time.”
DoNation Drive accepts help through GCash account 0956-3890291, she said.
