  1. Guillermo, I would like to donate to the fund for those in need due to the flod. I want to use my Payapal account, but need an email address to send the money to. What email address can I use that will accept my donation?

    • I tried to surf GMA Kapuso’s website at http://www.kapusofoundation.com/donate/credit (a trusted Foundation), but I can’t find a Paypal account. Looks like they are not using Paypal. Anyway, if you want I’ll email them (gmaf@gmanetwork.com) and ask if they have a paypal account. I’ll inform you if there is one.

      Thank you.
