MANILA — Angel Locsin's car and Anne Curtis' luxury bag are among the first items to be auctioned off under their joint project, Shop & Share 2020, to raise funds to help carry out coronavirus mass testing in the country.
Ahead of its launch, Shop & Share shared photos of Locsin's 2015 Dodge Durango as well as Curtis' 2019 Chanel Cruise Boy North South handbag.
The schedule of the auction has yet to be announced.
Stars also selling their "pre-loved" items include Regine Velasquez, Dingdong Dantes, Ogie Alcasid, Bea Alonzo, Joshua Garcia, and Dimples Romana, going by a teaser image Shop & Share posted on Wednesday.
The initiative was first done in 2009 in response to the Ondoy calamity. At the time, proceeds from auctioned designer bags, jewelry, and clothes, among others, were given to the Philippine Red Cross.
This time, Shop & Share will be held to purchase COVID-19 test kits.
"With what we are able to raise, it is our aim to cover the expense for testing kits to the underprivileged who are affected by this global crisis," the group said.
"We pursue this mission humbly, with compassion and kindness in hopes of aiding the government in increasing testing for COVID-19 in our own little way."
