The eruption of Taal Volcano in Batangas, Philippines on January 12, 2020 was a phreatomagmatic eruption from its main crater that spewed ashes across Calabarzon, Metro Manila and some parts of Central Luzon and Ilocos Region, resulting in the suspension of school, work schedules and flights in the area. Families were displaced and animals needed shelter.
Ms. Korina Sanchez and her team organized to evacuate and provide food to the displaced families and the abandoned pets at Padre Pio Shrine in Sto. Tomas and Nasugbu, Batangas.
" I feel blessed. And am paying it forward. Giving away a house and lot on my birthday is the #BestLIfeEver. So who is the one we chose to gif this house and lot to? Click on the photo below and watch!
" Of course this continues. As long as I can. Poor children are forever going to need slippers. For them, slippers are not just for them to be comfortable. To them, it is dignity. That is why even a child who cannot walk wanted a pair for herself. The best birthday gift is the kind we give to other....and we also had a Tsinelas cake for the children in Marikina! "
Equivalent to a Category 2 hurricane, more than 180,000 people were evacuated as the typhoon battered the country. Luzon was heavily affected and we continue on our mission to be of service to our fellowmen where we are needed most.

At this time of COVID-19, little things mean a lot. We do not forget our kababayans...and YOU, our dear K Beauties are part of this giving because of your support of K Everyday.

A video tribute for Ms. Korina Sanchez by the people of Boracay for saving these dogs. In cooperation with Ms. Korina Sanchez, AARRC rescued 50 dogs from abysmal circumstances on Boracay island, a famous tourist destination. These poor dogs were literally rescued from Death's doorstep!
Children occupy a huge part of Korina's heart and she always looks for ways to provide for their basic needs.
These children were given prosthetic legs and could not contain their excitement to be able to play again.
These brand new slippers are the simplest things but bring a lot of joy to those who cannot afford it.
Being the most awarded Broadcast Journalist in the country, one advocacy close to her heart is inspiring the future of the nation through speaking engagements in colleges.
She is so serious with her fundraising that she travels all over the world to look for generous sponsors who support her causes to the benefit of the needy in the Philippines.
