Sinimulan ni Maine Mendoza, 25, ang isang fundraising drive para sa mga empleyadong apektado ng quarantine.

Ang inisyatibo ay tinawag niyang DoNation Drive.

Ginawa ni Maine ang announcement sa Twitter nito ngayong Huwebes, March 19.

Bungad ng Eat Bulaga! host: “Hi everyone! Given the difficult situation we are all facing, I thought of starting the DoNation drive today.

“This is to help the employees who are not allowed to work because of the community lockdown.”

Kalakip ng tweet ni Maine ang link ng blog niya mula sa Wordpress.com, isang open-source content management system.

Ang kanyang page, thedonationdrive.wordpress.com, ay information source para sa mga nais mag-donate at mga empleyadong nais mag-avail ng donasyon.

Kalakip ng page ang artikulo ni Maine na nagpapaliwanag sa kanyang sinimulang fundraising.

MAINE’S OWN LITTLE WAY TO HELP

Sa simula ng artikulo, binanggit ni Maine ang malawak na epekto ng current pandemic disease.

Aniya: “We are all required to stay at home, but some people, especially our frontliners, whether be it in the government, food and medical industry have been trying their best to fulfill their duty as our modern heroes on these difficult times.”

Masuwerte raw ang iba na kayang matustusan ang kanilang mga pangangailangan sa buong period ng quarantine.

“But what about those workers who live on a day-to-day basis?

"Now that they are obliged not to go to work, how can they survive?”

Ang idinereklarang enhanced community quarantine sa buong Luzon ay inaasahang tatagal ng isang buwan.

Dahil daw rito, naisip ni Maine na simulan ang DoNation Drive.

“I will be launching my Donationa Drive to help in my own little way, those who are greatly affected by this catastrophe,” saad ng tinaguriang Dubsmash Queen.

“I know how hard it is for these people nowadays to sustain their living so I decided to share as much as I can to them.”

Idinetalye rin ni Maine kung magkano ang pinaplano niyang tulong sa beneficiaries.

“I will be sending P1,000 per household. (for food groceries and other essentials). This is to help as many employees as possible.”

Sabi pa ni Maine: “This also leads me to the realization that we can all help, in our own little ways, to at least make things easier to those who need it the most.

“If you want to play a part, you can spare a little amount from your pockets that will surely go to those in need.

“Our share, no matter how big or small, will go a long way.”

Nakasulat sa artikulo ang mga kondisyon sa mga nais maging beneficiary at ang impormasyon sa mga nais mag-donate.

Paniniyak pa ni Maine: "I will personally facilitate all the donations and I will TRY my best to accommodate as many people as I can.

“I will also provide proof of transactions to the donors for transparency purposes if they wish.

“Again, your share, no matter how big or small, will surely go a long way. Let’s DO this!” panawagan ni Maine.

Ang pagsasagawa ng mga fundraising drive ay hindi na bago kay Maine.

Sa katunayan, noong nakaraang taon ay inilunsad ni Maine ang kanyang Shop Bid Donate project, na nasa ikaapat na taon na.

Kasama ng kanyang partners, nagsasagawa sila ng garage-sale-cum-fundraising-projects, kung saan isinusubasta ni Maine ang pre-loved items niya para makalikom ng pondo na itutulong sa less fortunate.
