The Popster fans of Sarah Geronimo successfully organized a dance flash mob dubbed as “Tala para sa Taal” to raise funds for evacuees displaced by the Taal Volcano eruption.
Hundreds of fans and their families in their pink shirts participated in the dance flash mob for a cause and performed the hit dance craze “Tala” on January 18 at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila.
The Popsters went on social media to express their gratitude to all who supported their fundraising initiative.
“To all who have supported, donated and participated in the ‘TalaParaSaTaal’ flash mob fund raising, we are pleased to inform you that we have reached a total of almost P100,000. Your donations (no matter how much that is) paved way for us to raise this amount.
“And with that, the organizers have decided to fill in for the remaining and close off the donation at P100K.”
The Popsters will donate the fund to the Philippine Red Cross on January 21.
Another “Tala para sa Taal” zumba and dance mob for a cause in Infanta, Quezon will be organized by the municipal government on January 25 at the Infanta Social Center. The event’s proceeds will be donated to the victims of Taal Volcano eruption.
Another fandom, the supporters of Pinoy Pop idol group SB19 the A’TIN, went to Batangas to help the evacuees.
Celebrities themselves such as Angel Locsin and popular YouTube vlogger Basel Manadil of The Hungry Syrian Wanderer joined the bayanihan drive of various public and private organizations, ordinary individuals, overseas Filipinos, and government agencies to provide for the needs of the victims of the Taal Volcano phreatic eruption on January 12 that spewed toxic ash over a wide area from Batangas to Cavite, Laguna, Metro Manila, and beyond.
