GMA Kapuso stars like Candy cover girl Maxene Magalona have also been doing their part in GMA Kapuso Foundation's telethon. Her sister Saab Magalona has been re-tweeting information on how to help and messages from people who still need help.
Other stars have been organizing relief operations as well such as KC Concepcion who was able to distribute relief goods to two areas and is still continuing to accept donations at the Wack Wack Clubhouse in Mandaluyong City.
