Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Aljur Abrenica, Julie Anne San Jose, and more support World Vision Philippines' White Event online celebrity auction.
More than 15 of the celebrities we avidly follow are donating their cherished white clothing and other personal items for fans to bid on via the White Event, an online celebrity auction for a cause.
Stars like Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Julie Anne San Jose, Aljur Abrenica, Nikki Gil, Derek Ramsay, Marc Nelson, Doug and Cheska Kramer, Miriam Quiambao, Tippy Dos Santos, Eula Valdez, Ms. Celeste Legaspi, Ms. Tessie, Tomas, Tweetie De Leon-Gonzalez, Lynda Jumilla, and Jing Castañeda unite with World Vision Philippines and Zonrox GentleClean to help raise funds to rehabilitate Catmon Integrated School, a public school in Malabon City where more than 4,500 students share 28 classrooms that are in need of upgrades.
Social media personalities eagerly jumped into the project as well, with fashion bloggers Cat Arambulo-Antonio and Kryz Uy donating a white Vania Romoff jumpsuit and imported sequined gown, respectively.
Aljur Abrenica, World Vision multiple child sponsor, willingly donated his white Calvin Klein pants, a pair he was able to buy during his first visit to the US when his showbiz career was still young.
"I want to share my items sa mga tao because maraming benefits. For one, it's a self-achievement when you let go of something na very important sa 'yo," Aljur explained to us.
Julie Anne San Jose auctions off a white leather jacket she wore during her Christmas party last year with fans.
Julie Anne expressed these endearing words while describing her donations: "I want to share this item kasi jacket symbolizes comfort, and kapag ibinigay ko itong jacket sa kanila, parang I'm giving them comfort as well, 'di ba? Parang hina-hug ko na rin sila!"
Shying away from clothes, Jasmine Curtis-Smith gave two pairs of shoes to the project, one of which (pictured) she regularly wore on her dance numbers in Move It.
Asked why she agreed to participate in the White Event, the pretty Kapatid star had this to say: "I'm supporting the White Event campaign because I believe everyone deserves an opportunity in life, in education, and in everyday needs.
"Also, I believe that World Vision has the best interests for everyone that will be receiving everything raised from this campaign."
Celeste Legaspi shows the Patis Tesoro beaded cover-up she wore on her 1990 Bagong Plaka, Lumang Kanta (volume 3) album. Tessie Tomas handed down a creation from son Robin Tomas who is now a proud owner of the Tomas fashion line in NY.
Even showbiz icons Ms. Celeste Legaspi, a pioneer OPM artist, and Ms. Tessie Tomas, renowned talk show host, showcased their donations for the cause.
