SKY, HBO and History Channel Mobilize Virtual Fundraiser for Odette Survivors

More than a million Filipinos are still struggling to get back on their feet after the devastation caused by Super Typhoon Odette. To provide assistance, SKY, with the support of distribution partners HBO and History Channel, is joining the ABS-CBN Foundation’s relief efforts with its own project.

Called “Isang Daang Hakbang Sa Pagtutulungan: Kapamilya Virtual Run”, the event starts today and participants can donate money and complete the “100 Hakbang Challenge” to help support Odette survivors.
