It has been three months since the COVID-19 crisis upended Filipinos’ lives, unleashing the bayanihan spirit that captures our best side. Despite everyone’s best efforts to lessen the pain that this pandemic has caused, the work is far from over.
With the continuing rise of positive cases in the country, the Creator and Influencer Council of the Philippines (CICP) recognizes its pivotal role in dealing with the pandemic by drawing on the collective power of creators and influencers, all of who can draw support for a cause.
In this light, CICP is organizing #CreatorsUnitedPH, a fundraising effort by the creator and influencer industry for the procurement of the Department of Health (DOH)-approved, medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our medical frontliners. Currently, a single hospital uses almost 500 PPEs every day. While donated alternative PPEs are helpful, many of these are left unused due to its inability to fully protect the frontliners.
To further amplify the initiative, the country’s biggest creators from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao are uniting through a video to bring awareness to their audience. These creators are Erwan Heussaff, Mikey Bustos, Wil Dasovich, Mimiyuuuh, Rei Germar, Rozel Basilio, Ranz and Niana Guerrero, Kimpoy Feliciano, Jako de Leon, Carlo Ople, Hazel Quing, Haidee Quing, Malaya Macaraeg, Alem Garcia, Issa Perez, and Rigel Thomas.
Watch it below:
#CreatorsUnitedPH aims to raise P1 million to purchase 1,000 pieces of DOH-approved, medical-grade PPEs worth P1,000 each. These PPEs will be coursed through the DOH to be distributed to hospitals and medical facilities across the country, including the Philippine General Hospital, Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, Lung Center of the Philippines, Fe del Mundo Medical Center, San Lazaro Hospital, Tarlac Provincial Hospital, Kainomayan Primary Hospital, General Cailles Memorial District Hospital, Casiguran District Hospital, and Vicente Sotto Medical Center Cebu.
