MANILA -- Heart Evangelista has given her fans a glimpse of her sourcing process for her namesake collection of home decor and fashion items, which is part of her efforts to help the artisans of Sorsogon province.
In her vlog released over the weekend, the actress can be seen going to different spots to buy placemats, baskets, lamps, and other items for Love Marie x Sorsogon which is based on her real name, Love Marie Ongpauco Escudero.
"We're sourcing more stuff for my website. And we'll also be launching an IG (Instagram) account to support all the local products and give it more exposure, hopefully, so we can help a lot of people in Sorsogon," Evangelista said.
Showing their efforts to visit even remote parts of the province to source products, she went on: "Kaya 'wag niyong i-expect na 'yung mga produkto murang-mura kasi bibiyahe ka pa papunta rito and everything. But of course, 'pag dineliver na namin 'yun sa iyo, maganda na 'yun. Kasi this is made and delivered with love."
Evangelista also redecorated part of their Sorsogon home with the products she bought from the locals, and even painted a mural in the bedroom for a personal touch.
Aside from her efforts for Love Marie x Sorsogon, she also helped distribute vitamins and wheelchairs donated by friends and sponsors, delivered a speech at a museum for an art contest, cared for the dogs she saw in each of her stops, and practiced at the shooting range.
