International singer Enrique Iglesias thanked kindergarten Yolanda survivors from Tacloban City after he received handmade Valentine cards from them for the day of hearts.


“I am honored to receive these hopeful messages from children in the Philippines. My fans have embraced this project in more ways than I could have imagined, and their generosity is going to make a big difference for kids in crises,” Iglesias said in an interview.

Iglesias is one of the many foreign celebrities who help children that have been affected by calamity in different parts of the world through the #Hearts4Kids T-shirt campaign in partnership with Save the Children, an international non-governmental organization that promotes children’s rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.

The international recording star received the Valentine cards last Friday while he was on tour to promote his 10th studio album called “Sex and Love.”

“Typhoon Yolanda took a tremendous toll on children. I would like to thank Enrique Iglesias for his support to the children of Yolanda and to vulnerable children around the world,” said Save the Children Philippines country director Ned Olney.

The plight of the Filipino children is near and dear to the popstar’s heart as his mother is a Filipina.
