As a pile of different artists launches online events to entertain people, Ben & Ben holds a massive fundraising event for Covid-19 relief and here are the deets for their online concert!
We have heard a lot of comforting songs from Ben & Ben which somehow tapped our shoulders through their lyrics. Now, in the midst of this pandemic crisis, the band will still comfort us and will lend a hand for Covid-19 relief.
The nine-piece collective will be performing some of their biggest hits for a one-hour live stream on Facebook on March 27 at 7:00 PM. Their platform called Puhon: A Ben&Ben FB Live Event for the COVID-19 Efforts will also serve as a launchpad for the band’s community-initiative website, www.puhon.ph.
‘Puhon’ is a Cebuano word which means “hopefully”. This hope is stronger than the virus that we’re facing right now and the band wants us to join together in combating Covid-19 through Bayanihan. In line with that, their platform aims to use art and music in uplifting people and boost the collective morale of all the key people involved.
“As artists, we believe that in a crisis like this we are called to do what we can to help—may it be by sending messages of hope, making efforts in raising funds for this crisis, or others,” expressed by the band.
With an unexpected response after they teased the netizens yesterday for their upcoming live event on Friday, people have already donated more than One Million.
Good to know that humanity is still alive! More so, all funds generated in this event would go to the support Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and nutrition support for frontline healthcare workers, for Covid-19 test kits and relief goods for daily wage earners.
This pandemic Coronavirus may have messed up our minds but know that the sun will shine brighter tomorrow! So, what are you waiting for? Share this uplifting good news to comfort and support Ben & Ben in helping our fellowmen.
Let’s work together in overcoming this crisis!
