A non-partisan group dubbed We The Youth Vote (WTYV) will hold an online fund-raising concert for the poor and the youth on Monday, Nov. 30

The digital concert will benefit the Samahan ng Nagkakaisang Pantawid ng Pamilya (SNPP), an organizational community that champions the continued implementation of expansion of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.

Dubbed “Tayô Táyo: A WTYV Online Fundraising Concert,” the digital
event coincides with the commemoration of the birth anniversary of Filipino hero Andres Bonifacio. The phrase “Tayô Táyo” stands for “let’s rise up.”

The event also aims help victims of recent typhoons as it strengthens the campaign to encourage the youth to register and vote in 2022.

Streaming live on WTYV’s official Facebook page and Kumu channel, the
two-hour concert – 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. PST – is headlined by some of today’s most sought-after acts such as Kean Cipriano, Unique, theater gems Phi Palmos and Gab Pangilinan, bird., Rice Lucido, Glaiza de Castro, Adrian Lindayag, Chai Fonacier, Earl Generao and Pappel, Biahana and more.

We The Youth Vote was officially launched in September, shorty after
the voter’s registration period began.

“Since its launch, we have attracted the attention and participation of
youth leaders nationwide, school organizations, and local celebrities
and content creators, helping the movement gain traction, especially on
social media,” the group said.

“Some of those who have openly expressed support in our advocacy are Macoy Dubs, Ria Atayde, Direk Tonette Jadaone, Kean Cipriano; vloggers Laureen Uy, Kerwin King, and Benny Cua; theater artists Gabby Pangilinan and Phil Palmos, among others.”

Using the introductory hashtags #MasMaramiTayo and #40MStrong,
the group taps young Filipinos or the so-called GenZs and
Millennials (18-39 years old) as they comprise the biggest voting
population by next election season, according to the Philippine
Statistics Authority (PSA).
