About a thousand individuals have received assistance from the digital show Grateful Tuesday led by its host, Chemist Pinky Tobiano. After two successful episodes, the program has reached and helped over 200 families, 370 abandoned elderly people in Graces for the Aged, and 150 rescued kids in Reception and Study for Children.
With the help of her friends, Tobiano was able to conduct Care and Share program in the two barangays in Quezon City namely Brgy. Katipunan and Brgy. Paltok. Food packs and gift packs as well as health kit were distributed to the residents of the said barangay who were hardly hit by the pandemic.
Aside from that, two brand new laptops were already given by Chemist Pinky Tobiano in the first two weeks of the show. The laptop winners were chosen through the inspiring stories they sent via email. The contest aims to give laptop to deserving individuals who really need it at the most like students enrolled in online classes or struggling employees in a work-from-home set-up.
Last Tuesday, Sept. 29, Peter Roncales, a newly retrenched employee who went viral on social media because of his incredible and touching story of riding a bicycle for 10 days from Parañaque to Eastern Samar in order to get home, received a special surprise from Chemist Pinky Tobiano. In a phone interview together with Yeng Constantino, Tobiano surprised Roncales with 10,000 pesos as a gift from the show.
Also, ten lucky online viewers of the said show in each episode received 300 pesos worth of load. Grateful Tuesdays also features inspiring viral stories and heroic acts of our kababayans who are striving hard and giving us inspiration in these trying times.
Tobiano is joined by Pop Rock Superstar Yeng Constantino as co-host and Charm Aranton as “Charming Lakwatsadora” during the Care and Share program in the chosen barangay.
Grateful Tuesdays airs every Tuesday from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. live on CSTV Facebook page. It is streaming simultaneously on Chemist Pinky Tobiano FB Page, Cornerstone Entertainment Youtube Channel, and CSTV Kumu Account.
