Arbitrary Concern

At the start of the covid-19 pandemic, certain celebrities on their initiative launched various programs to help. Some celebrities called for materials hospitals immediately needed, such as personal protective equipment and tents. Others raised funds to support families in dire need of food and shelter. Musically-inclined personalities staged online concerts to gather money for various purposes to address the needs of easing the effects of the crisis.

While others opted to use social media to call for assistance, many celebrities opted to remain quiet in helping. Nonetheless, most had to reveal their activities, as netizens and bashers are quick to assume that just because a celebrity is not shown packing goods, he/she is not doing his/her share.

On her part, Vivacious Talent (VT) wanted to join the trend and help as well. Thus, she chose an easy path of distributing groceries to her community. However, in the process. VT turned out to be a nuisance. As soon as VT saw the line of people waiting to enter the supermarket, which is already a policy to practice social distancing, VT moved ahead of everyone else. Once she saw the security personnel, she demanded to see the owner of the supermarket whom she claimed to be a friend.

The security personnel immediately called the owner, who verified the claim of VT. VT told the owner that she needed to buy goods for her operation to help the poor in her community. Thus, with her seeming good cause, VT was given permission to enter without regard for people who have been waiting for hours.

VT proceeded to buy goods in bulk, such as sacks of rice and innumerable boxes of canned goods. Sadly, her purchases left only a few goods for people in the line that day and many went home unable to buy what they needed for the quarantine.

‘But selfish isn't necessarily a bad thing. It only means you take care of yourself and you have to do that to be able to take care of others.’ ― Tera Lynn Childs

  5. Naisip ko rin yan. Ako kasi ang runner na lumalabas para maggrocery ng kailangan. Nahihirapan ako kasi ang daming wala. Naintindihan ko naman kasi pandemic talagang mataas demand pero ayun nga sa dami ng bumibili ng bulk na napakarami parang minsan maiirita ka. Katulad alcohol, ok naman sa kin na dalawa lang ang allowed na mabili pero waley talaga ako mabili eversince magsimula ecq. Nung nagtanong ako, meron naman daw dumating, may bumili raw ng bulk na citizen na may barangay permit. Idodonate raw. Yung anti bacterial soap wala na rin parang puro beauty soap madalas andun. Yung stock pa namin before ecq ang ginagamit namin.

    Wala naman masama magdonate pero sana maregulate rin yung mga bumibili ng bulk. Kasi naregulate na sa anti hoarding yung mga shoppers eh sana sa mga nagbabulk buying rin. Imbis na may essentials pa para sa iba wala. Imbis na marami mapoprotect ng alcohol and soap waley. Buti sana kung yung binibigyan nila eh di pa nabigyan ng iba kahit isang beses.

    1. 4:03, you don't need an anti-bacterial soap. As advised medically, regular soap for hand washing is more than adequate.

    2. 4:03, tama si 10:48, nag google pa talaga ako dati tungkol dyan. Ndi naman needed anti bacterial kasi in the first place virus siya. Yung bula effect pagka intindi ko nagaalis ng virus sa kamay. Kahit ano pa sabon gamitin mo okay na pabulain mo mabuti saka scrub scrub mo buong kamay mo.

  6. Halata tuloy na pakitang tao lang ang pagtulong. Kasi yung mga bukal sa loob na gustong tumulong, hindi sila selfish. Ayaw nilang mamerwisyo ng iba, hndi kagaya ni VT.

    1. True. It says "VT wanted to join the trend and help as well". This is not A cause A has been helping since then and is doing it constantly.

  13. Sure okay lang mag-bulk buy para magdonate pero yung sisingit ka sa pila pagpasok dahil kakilala mo yung owner? Wow ha! Pati owner ng supermart may mali tsk tsk

  14. Dapat pumila pa rin siya. Gusto niya daw tumulong pero tingin niya sa sarili nya mas mataas kesa sa mga taong pumila ng matagal.
