‘Tulong Kapatid Telethon’ Raises Over P30-M for Typhoon Victims

More than P30 million was raised by TV5 last Sunday night during its live airing of the “Tulong Kapatid, Sulong Kapatid” telethon for the victims of Yolanda, the super typhoon that ravaged the Visayas and rendered thousands of Filipinos homeless and in dire need of food and medical assistance.


Telecast live from 9:00pm-2:00am, the telethon aired via “The Mega and The Songwriter: Kanta at Biyaya” with Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Ogie Alcasid hosting for the whole duration of the five-hour show, which also aired live in TV5’s international channels worldwide. The telethon’s live airing resumed the next day from 5:30am-8:00am during the Good Morning Club timeslot.

Over 60 TV5 stars, OPM artists and the team Gilas players devoted time to support the cause by manning the phone lines and accepting pledges and donations from callers from all across the country as well as in other parts of the world. Some of those who comprised the first few batches of volunteers were Lucy Torres-Gomez, Aga Muhlach, Gelli De Belen, Derek Ramsay, Alice Dixson, Ritz Azul, Eula Caballero, Martin Escudero, Empoy, Mr. Fu, Regine Angeles, Raymond Gutierrez, the Artista Academy finalists, the boys of Juan Direction, Lia Cruz, Shawn Yao, Manu Sandejas, Jason Webb, Chris Tiu, Kiefer Ravena, Larry Fonacier, Gary David, Jimmy Alapag, among others.

TV5 Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan was present to encourage everyone to support the telethon and help raise funds for the Alagang Kapatid Foundation’s relief and rehabilitation efforts in typhoon-stricken areas. Also present at the telethon were TV5 President and CEO Noel Lorenzana, Sports5 head Coach Chot Reyes, PLDT President and CEO Napoleon Nazareno, and Meralco HR and Corporate Services SVP and PBA Chairman Mon Segismundo.

Sharing their musical talents and making the telethon more entertaining and engaging for the viewers were OPM artists Jim Paredes, Noel Cabangon, Cooky Chua, Bayang Barrios, Aia De Leon, Luke Mijares, Jeffrey Hidalgo, Isabelle De Leon, Lara Maigue, with Abby Asistio, RJ Dela Fuente, Daryl Shy, AKA Jam, 5 Az 1, Claire Ruiz, Quest, Chadleen, Gabe Piolo, and Arthur Manuntag.
