The past few days have been tough on Filipinos and everyone else around the world. The COVID-19 virus has brought the world to a standstill and put majority of us at risk. In order to flatten the curve and give our health workers and frontliners a fighting chance against the spread of the virus, we must all do our part. It might get lonely staying at home but always remember that you are #HomeButNotAlone.
#HomeButNotAlone is a free online concert, wherein we hope to bring joy and uplift the spirits of Filipinos, amidst the current community quarantine. It is also a chance for those at home to not just be entertained but contribute to the ongoing efforts to stop the spread of the virus.
The #HomeButNotAlone free concert online series, in collaboration with various artists, aims to provide a sliver of hope to Filipinos amidst the current community quarantine due to COVID-19. All the generated donations will be divided among three beneficiaries:
