MANILA - Volleyball star Jia Morado has raised over P1 million to benefit frontliners and health care workers in 14 different hospitals. 

The "Every Little Thing Counts" campaign, which Morado launched together with her boyfriend Miguel de Guzman, generated P1,028,031.75 as of April 23, through donations and jersey auctions. 

On their social media accounts, Morado and de Guzman showed a detailed breakdown of where the personal protective equipment, surgical gloves, and masks would go.

"We're happy to share that all of our PPE supplies are now in transit," Morado said. 

The fundraiser was originally meant to benefit the Philippine General Hospital and Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center, but they were able to help 14 hospitals. 

"Broadened our horizon beyond the metropolis to reach out to as many frontliners as we could," Morado explained.

Among the hospitals that are set to receive their donations are the Nueva Ecija Doctors' Hospital in Cabanatuan, the Gapan City District Hospital, and the Lung Center of the Philippines.
