MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actress Bela Padilla literally went 101 percent to help Filipinos affected by the community quarantine in Metro Manila, which was later upgraded into an enhanced community quarantine across the island of Luzon in response to the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

The GoGetFunding page of Bela’s "Pagkain Para sa Pinoy" campaign already breached the intended goal of a million pesos less than 48 hours after it was first announced around midnight on Monday.

“We hit the target of 1,000,000 pesos!!!! Thank you!!! Looking for the best deals for food now and hopefully be able to deliver everything this week! THANK YOU,” she posted on social media upon learning the good news.
