"For me, a project such as this is no-brainer. I've always been happy to help in whatever way I can. Being looked up to by a lot of people, as an artist, I know I have the means as well as I can encourage more people to lend a helping hand to those in need,"said Heart during the press conference. 

On how Caritas Manila made Heart said yes to this project, this is what Heart has to say:

Proceeds from this year’s bazaar will be given to the Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program (YSLEP) of Caritas Manila. The program sends and supports less fortunate but deserving students nationwide to their college or university of choice.        

Caritas Manila Executive Director Fr. Anton CT Pascual tells how the bazaar funds their educational program

“We at Caritas Manila are so grateful for the generosity and enthusiasm of these celebrities to help YSLEP scholars,” comments Fr. Anton CT Pascual, Caritas Manila Executive Director.  Their assistance will go a long way in proving education and support can help realize the potentials of our future leaders coming from the ranks of the poor.”

Heart Evangelista says she is very happy to help send the underprivileged youth back to school

Now on its second year, the very first Caritas Manila Celebrity Bazaar was held two years ago with former beauty queen and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach as the Event Ambassador. The said bazaar alone has earned enough funds to support 5,000 YSLEP Scholars. There are between 3,000 to 5,000 YSLEP scholars nationwide. They are provided with a college or vocational degree which allows them 98 percent chance of helping their respective families to overcome poverty. 

To date, more than 10,000 YSLEP scholars have graduated from college and vocational schools nationwide especially from the poorest provinces.

Caritas Manila is one of the biggest non-profit organizations in the country led by its chairman, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle.
