Making sure everyone is informed
In an effort to keep everyone protected from the coronavirus, Vice has uploaded a video with helpful information on how to address the pandemic.
Showing support to Vice Cosmetics employees
Vice Ganda's cosmetics line VICE Cosmetics has made sure to protect the livelihood of its employees during the pandemic. Their employees and Ganda AdVICErs will be getting financial help such as early release of 13th month pay and incentive leaves, loan deferment, and non-conditional cash assistance program.
Sharing his blessings
Vice keeps a genuine heart, coming to mind how he donated PHP 1M cash prize he had received from Joel Cruz at It's Showtime's "Magpasikat 2019" segment to earthquake victims in Mindanao. Now, given the need for medical supplies amid the threat of COVID-19, he is sharing more of his blessings by donating N95 masks, medical disposable gloves, safety goggles, and alcohol to hospitals. "Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng mga frontlineres para sa pagmamahal at pagkalinga ninyo sa mga madlang people!!! Mabuhay po kayo! Pagpalain ng Diyos ang inyong kabayanihan," he said in an Instagram post.
Sending positive vibes through music
They say music can lift your mood, reduce anxiety, and boost happiness. And that's exactly what Vice Ganda's newest song and music video "Corona Bye Bye Na!" is doing. Just last week, Vice Ganda released this pop song (which he composed, recorded, filmed, and edited all in a day, by the way!) during the ABS-CBN digital concert, Pantawid ng Pag-ibig: At-Home Together Concert. Now it has 1.4M views on YouTube and has become viral with kids and families dancing to it.
