Heart Joins Caritas Manila For Their Celebrity Bazaar

If you love to have a part of your favorite celebrities pre-loved items, you might want to check out Caritas Manila's second Celebrity Bazaar happening on October 18. To be held at the 2nd level of the SM Megamall Mega Atrium, it will be filled with items up for sale from the generous hearts of celebrities who are in support of the projects made by Cartitas Manila.

Proceeds from this year’s bazaar will benefit the Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program (YSLEP) of Caritas Manila. The program sends and supports less fortunate but deserving students nationwide to their college or university of choice.        

The first Caritas Manila Celebrity Bazaar was held 2 years ago with former Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach as Event Ambassador. The bazaar earned enough funds to support 5,000 YSLEP Scholars.  At any given time, there are between 3,000 to 5,000 YSLEP scholars nationwide. Figures show that providing a youth a college or vocational degree gives him a 98 per cent chance of helping his family overcome poverty.

Leading the stars who will be sharing one of kind items is Heart Evangelista-Escudero who is known as a fashionista yet still remains humble by sharing herself to many foundations, and this time for Caritas Manila. She will also immerse herself with the works of the organization by going to communities in the slums of Manila to see first hand their situation and how they can be helped with livelihood, education and other forms of assistance.

Aside from Heart  there is also a long list of celebrity donors in the bazaar like  Alden Richards, Ruffa Gutierrez, Dr. Vicki Bello, Scarlet Snow Belo, Cristalle Bello, Bang Pineda, Teacher Georcelle, Toni Gonzaga, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Vice Ganda, Iza Calzado, Divine Lee, Jinkee Pacquiao, Manny Pacquiao and premier designers Michael Cinco and Cary Santiago. Heart Evangelista is this year’s Event Ambassador.

“We at Caritas Manila are so grateful for the generosity and enthusiasm of these celebrities to help YSLEP scholars,” comments Fr. Anton CT Pascual, Caritas Manila Executive Director.  Their assistance will go a long way in proving education and support can help realize the potentials of our future leaders coming from the ranks of the poor.”

“To date, more than 10,000 YSLEP scholars have graduated from college and vocational schools nationwide especially from the poorest provinces.”

Caritas Manila is one of the biggest non-profit organizations in the country led by its chairman, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle.

The Celebrity Bazaar will be open from 1-10 PM and there will be an entrance fee of P500 per person that will like an initial donation and gives an exclusive access to the collections.
