In the last three months, the country was hit by calamities that caused serious damage and devastation to our fellow Filipinos in central Visayas, Palawan, and Mindanao: The war in Zamboanga, the earthquake in Bohol and Cebu, and typhoon Yolanda, one of the strongest typhoons in world history.
It is in this light that Metro decided to bring together 10 personalities from the fields of entertainment, music, and sports—to inspire everyone to help out and make a difference in their own way.
Charice, James Younghusband, Iza Calzado, Karylle, Kim Chiu, Liza Soberano, Marc Abaya, Phil Younghusband, Richard Gomez, and Rico Blanco grace Metro’s very special and meaningful holiday issue cover this December, and share their thoughts on giving back and touching other people’s lives. Each of them has an inspiring story to share, which would motivate you even more to take part in helping rebuild the homes and the lives of those who have been affected by those calamities—they also give you concrete tips on how to help.
