Curtis’ announcement came with a short message of gratitude to health workers and frontliners for their dedication and hard work.
“I pray for your safety and health as you continue to put your own well-being on the line. I hope makatulong po ito (I hope this helps),” she said.
The actress noted that more donations will come, although her team is having a hard time looking for stocks of the key supplies.
“Sa Dream Machine team ko, thank you for working hard to contact the suppliers and making sure legit sila habang Wala ako at tutok sa mommy duties muna (they are legitimate while I am away focusing on my mommy duties). God Bless all of you!!!” she stressed.
Curtis also called on those who are capable of donating to unite and “help protect those who are risking their lives for the Filipino people.” You can donate to Curtis’s foundation Dream Machine through their website www.dreammachine.ph.
