12 April 2011

Contrary to the gossip going around that Ogie’s charitable endeavors are interfering with his marriage, Ogie said that married life has actually inspired him to do charity work.

“Quite the contrary, my married life has made me do all this work. I am very much happily married and that is why I have the capacity to share my time and effort because God has blessed us with so much.”

“Ogie and Regine’s Ukay-Ukay” is the couple’s way to raise funds for the Kapuso Foundation. This April 15 to 17, during the Heat Wave Summer Bazaar at the World Trade Center, the couple would be soliciting pre-owned personal belongings like clothes, bags, shoes or accessories from celebrity friends to sell at the bazaar.

The money would go to the construction of 50 classrooms every year in challenged and remote communities in the country.

“It’s a very good idea but I don’t know if it will be an annual event. We need to raise P35 million to rehabilitate schools that have been destroyed by calamities,” explained Ogie.

The funds will be for alleviating shortage of classrooms which now totals 146,946, as reported by the Department of Education.

Lily Monteverde, movie producer, has already donated P1 million to Ogie and Regine’s cause.

Marriage has truly been fruitful not only to Regine and Ogie but also to the students they will be able to help.
