MANILA, Philippines – Queen of All Media Kris Aquino, actress Angel Locsin and comedian Vice Ganda are set to distribute relief goods to families affected by tropical storm "Sendong" in Cagayan de Oro today.

Aquino said on Twitter that they will fly to Cagayan de Oro right after "Showtime," which airs until 12 noon.

"Leaving right after 'Showtime.' Praying we can help spread some love and comfort to our CDO Kapamilya," she wrote.

Earlier, she tweeted: "Getting ready for 'Kris TV.' We were able to pack 300 care packs, hopefully will fit in the small airplane taking Angel Locsin, Vice Ganda and me to CDO."

Meanwhile, actress Anne Curtis announced on Twitter that she will also be with Aquino's group to distribute relief goods in Cagayan de Oro.

"My heart goes out to the victims of typhoon Sendong," she wrote.

As early as Saturday, Locsin has been asking her followers to extend help to families in flood-stricken areas.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said Monday that "Sendong" has killed more than 600 people, mostly from the hardest hit areas of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City.
