Actress KC Concepcion

MANILA - Actress-host KC Concepcion is following in the footsteps of her mother, Sharon Cuneta, in helping the victims of super typhoon "Yolanda" (international name Haiyan).

"Kris TV" host Kris Aquino said on Wednesday that Concepcion is giving a "personal donation" of P5 million.

Earlier, Cuneta pledged P10 million for typhoon victims.

"It's a personal donation of P5 million from Ms. KC Concepcion. She said sana the P3 million for the immediate and the other P2 million for whatever rebuilding will occur. I think she said kasi she's shooting right now," Aquino said.

"I salute you, KC, for this act of generosity, na extreme generosity. Nakakabilib talaga. Hindi ikaw ang nagyabang nito, ako ang nagpaabot. And I asked your permission. Siya 'yung kinatawan ng WFP (United Nations' World Food Programme) dito," she added.

Concepcion, who is now in Ilocos to shoot for her upcoming film, has been asking people on Twitter to help "Yolanda" victims.

"Every effort counts. But truthfully, in donating ur own Relief Goods, to RLY make a difference, u need to donate in the thousands, not less," she said in a Twitter post.
