Ivana Alawi expressed gratitude for earning 15 million subscribers on YouTube by distributing 8,000 food packs with P150 each, giving away P1.2 million cash in total.
The actress-vlogger, who achieved the YouTube milestone last February, explained that she waited to move into her new house before celebrating as she wanted it to be the mark of a “good start.” She spoke about this in a vlog on her YouTube channel yesterday, Aug. 7.
Ivana along with her family — Fatima, Hash and Amira — and her house helpers prepared the food packs which contained rice, canned goods, Korean rice cake snacks and soap bars from her skincare brand. Aside from the goods, Ivana also distributed a serving of champorado.
Ivana initially had a target of giving away 15,000 packs but they were only able to produce 8,000 due to difficulties in preparing the food. She then thanked her fans and stressed that such activity is her way of giving back for all their support.
“Sobrang thank you sa inyo for watching us, supporting, loving and subscribing to us,” Ivana said. “Sobrang blessed ako na nandyan kayo and super ibabalik namin lahat ng blessings na ibinibigay niyo sa amin, and also the love and support na ibinibigay niyo sa pamilya ko.”
(Thank you so much to all of you for watching us, supporting, loving and subscribing to us. I am so blessed that you are all there [to support me]. I will give back all the blessings we receive from you, along with the love and support you give our family.)
Meanwhile, Ivana spent nearly P300,000 last May as she treated her family, staff and a random stranger to a shopping spree by doing the “buying everything you can carry” challenge. She also earlier granted her house helper’s dream by treating her to a nose plastic surgery at celebrity doctor Vicki Belo’s clinic. JB
