AWARD-winning Kapuso actor, TV host and singer Alden Richards never fails to pay it forward to the community.

The Pambansang Bae, together with GMA Records General Manager Rene Salta, personally turned over a portion of his ‘Adrenaline Rush’ concert proceeds to GMA Kapuso Foundation through GMAKF Founder and Ambassador Mel C. Tiangco and GMAKF EVP and COO Rikki Escudero-Catibog.

Alden’s donation will help fund the rehabilitation of Camp Bagong Amai Pakpak Elementary School in Marawi City which is under GMAKF’s Rebuild Marawi Project.

Thankful for his blessings, Alden stays committed to help the less fortunate. “All of the things that I’m doing, nagkakaroon siya ng purpose kapag nakakatulong ako sa iba through the work that I do for the Network, for myself, and for the audiences of GMA. Natutuwa ako ngayon dahil nakita ko yung mga plano ng schools na tutulungan natin sa Marawi and I’m assured that the funds we are donating are going to the ones in need.”

Tiangco, on the other hand, commended Alden’s kindheartedness. “Kaya patuloy din siyang bini-bless ng Panginoon kasi hindi niya nakakalimutang mag-share at hindi niya nakakalimutan yung mga nangangailangan. Nakikita rin niyang the Foundation is working very hard to help our countrymen in Marawi.”

Meanwhile, talented Kapuso actress Kyline Alcantara also shared a part of her ‘Kyline Take Flight’ concert proceeds to one of the beneficiaries of GMAKF.

She has chosen to contribute to the rehabilitation of classrooms in different parts of Bicol, her home province. Kyline hails originally from Camarines Sur in Bicolandia.

Kyline also encouraged the youth to extend their help to those in need. “Sana maging inspirasyon po ito para sa mga kabataan na tumulong pa,” she said.
