Thank you to everyone who supported Operation Odette! We had such a great turnout during our streaming fundraiser with some fantastic and talented DJs and Artists.
Over 2 days, 25+ hrs of music, 24 DJs, and 1 singer streaming on Twitch, we surpassed our amazing goal of $17,500.00 for the Philippines Typhoon Relief. After the success of the first two-day fundraiser, we decided to put on a House Music Edition fundraising stream to help us reach an extended goal of $21,000.00 which pushed us over the 1 Million PHP donation mark! 100% of proceeds will go to ABS-CBN Foundation International to continue to provide on the ground support to those affected by Typhoon Rai (Odette) around the Philippines.
Thank you once again to everyone who has opened up their hearts to help make this fundraiser beyond successful. If you or your friends and family are still looking to make a contribution, please click on the link below:

Super Typhoon Rai, known as Odette, left parts of the Philippines to pieces, leaving people in desperate need of basic necessities like power, food, and water. The devastation caused by the typhoon hit some of the most vulnerable areas of the Philippines like Bohol, Siargao, and Cebu.
Actress and artist, Nadine Lustre returned to the island of Siargao to help set up solar panels for locals to charge gadgets like phones, LED lights, and other appliances. Currently, there’s still no power on the island and locals have been helping each other rebuild their community.
Nadine recently has been splitting her time between Manila and Siargao and although she was in Manila during the typhoon, she made her way back to help in providing relief. With no timeline yet when electricity will be available for the island, every little bit helps.
MYX has set up a Twitch DJ charity fundraiser on 12/28 and 12/29 to raise funds for ABS-CBN Foundation International to support the victims in the Philippines, you can donate directly here on Tiltify for “Operation Odette” to their efforts in providing food, shelter, health items and more. Stay tuned for more info on the fundraiser along with an announcement for the line up.
Upcoming for Nadine is a new film under Viva Max, Greed. She shows off her acting depth with this darker role in this thriller film with Diego Loyzaga. Check out the teaser below!
