"It alarmed me when the COVID-19 cases in the biggest hospital here in Davao jumped to 22 positive cases from an initial count of 4 just in one day! I have friends in the frontlines so I had to do something to help out." Tinjoy, Bride

"I posted about my dress on March 28 and sold it on the same day! So many people were interested to buy it but I was very picky to whom I'll sell it to. My wedding dress is very special to me so I had to know that it was going to be cared for." Tinjoy, Bride

"I sold my wedding dress to a lady who doesn't even have a groom yet! I chose her because she loved the design and she genuinely wanted to help out. I was amazed that she answered my crazy idea of selling my dress with a crazy decision to purchase it even if she wasn't set to get married yet. I'm excited for her big day soon!" Tinjoy, Bride

"I was able to buy 2,500 hospital-grade surgical masks from Manila and 1,100 washable masks to donate to frontliners here in Davao." Tinjoy, Bride
