Actress Janine Gutierrez is assisting the non-profit organization Tanging Yaman Foundation in looking for 50 kind souls who can pledge P5,000 each for the benefit of Nueva Ecija farmers.

The funds will be used to purchase 50 tons of pumpkins grown by these farmers. In turn, the produce will be given to several communities that will temporarily be under lockdown after May 15. The actress retweeted the foundation’s post via her Twitter account today, May 14.
