Celebrities Kylie Padilla and Mikael Daez and GMA team with Save the Children for Yolanda survivors
Mikael Daez and Kylie Padilla today become official representatives of children’s charity Save the Children.
The pair, who are GMA’s hottest young stars are the first Filipino representatives of the charity who internationally have ambassadors such as ‘Hollywood’ A-Listers, Jennifer Garner and Julianne Moore, football star Cristiano Ronaldo and international designer Rachel Zoe.
Kylie, who rose to fame in hit drama series “Adarna” and won PMPC 2008 Best New Female Personality, is delighted with her new role and engagement with the children’s organization
‘It is a privilege to be a representative of Save the Children and be given the opportunity to help children in need, especially typhoon Yolanda survivors. I want to do whatever I can to help provide them everything they need so they can recover from their experiences and reach their full potential.”
In the coming days, Padilla and Daez will be traveling with Save the Children to visit Yolanda-affected communities across Visayas and meet with some of the survivors who lost everything in the storm November 8th.
Save the Children has reached nearly 800,000 people in some of the ‘Yolanda’-hit areas with emergency life-saving aid and long-term support for livelihoods and aims to continue working with those affected for the next two years.
Save the Children’s country director Ned Olney said about the relationship:
“Save the Children is delighted to have such passionate engaged young people working with us as we strive to give every child in the Philippines the best start in life.
We hope that our relationship with Kylie and Mikael will give us the opportunity to reach many more children and save even more lives.”
Actor and ‘24 Oras Midnight Express’ segment host Mikael said about his latest engagement;
“I’ve always wanted to help children. All children should be able to dream about what they want to be when they grow up. Save the Children’s work means that more children can have those dreams. I am excited about the opportunity to work alongside this amazing charity and am privileged to be able to use my work for this excellent cause.”
Both celebrities are filming for their new drama series. Daez prepares for ‘Ang Lihim ni Annasandra’ while Padilla gears up for ‘Ilustrado.’
