American comedian Dave Chappelle did more than just dish jokes during his stay in the Philippines—he also contributed to aid for victims of the Taal Volcano eruption.

Chappelle donated P1 million to Rayomar Outreach Foundation, a nonprofit established by Rayomar Management Inc., which has companies in industries such as shipping and logistics. The comedian’s contribution was announced by venture capitalist Katrina Razon, the daughter of billionaire Enrique K. Razon, via Instagram on Thursday, Jan. 16.

It’s one thing to meet your childhood hero. It’s another thing to produce his first ever show in the Philippines. Dave not only sent audiences here into hysterics, he also demonstrated how kindness and wisdom prevail the way. He joined us at @solaireresort in a donation to the Rayomar Outreach Foundation, a nonprofit on the ground to provide aid to those affected by #TaalVolcano. Dave once said, “Constantly take inventory of what’s important you”. Thank you, Dave. For the laughter and nuggets of wisdom. It is no wonder you are one of the greatest comedians of our time ✨#DaveChappelle
