There is nothing more unique than the heart of a Filipino—soft enough to care for the weak, strong enough to rise up to the challenge. GMA Network knocks on this very heart as the country faces another great challenge—the nation’s survival and recovery from Super Typhoon Yolanda.
With the joint efforts of GMA Kapuso Foundation and YES Pinoy Foundation on November 17, the Kapuso Network invited the public to respond to a one-time television special aptly entitled, Tibay ng Pusong Pilipino—a GMA Telethon for the benefit of the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.
This special featured a powerhouse cast of respectable names in the music and showbiz industry, headlined by the biggest and brightest Kapuso stars, with the special participation of News and Public Affairs personalities.
Viewers enjoyed watching their favorite Kapuso artists in heartwarming production numbers, live updates in the affected areas, and special activities including a live telethon, and repacking of goods, for survival and recovery assistance to the victims of typhoon Yolanda.
As of November 18, the GMA Kapuso Foundation received a total of P131,584,180.26 in cash and P7,087,370.14 of in-kind donations, for a total amount of P138,671,550.40.
