Last Saturday, Nov 16, 2013, The Belo Medical Group held a garage sale at The Residences at Greenbelt clinic. It was swiftly organized in order to respond quickly and address the need for relief goods. Belo endorsers donated their “pre-loved” things like clothes, bags and shoes which were sold at low prices. The group raised P650,000 from the garage sale and Dr Vicki Belo’s online auction of luxury bags in Instagram.
Luxury and designer bags, shoes and clothes such as Dolce and Gabanna, Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Bvlgari, Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Diane Von Furstenberg and Louis Vuitton were just some of the items sold during the garage sale. Prices went from as low as P100 to P5,000.
?Some of Belo endorsers who donated their pre-loved items are: Christopher de Leon, Sandy Andulong, Alden Richards, Christian Bautista, Toni Gonzaga, Karylle, Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, Angeline Quinto, Derek Ramsay, Jennylyn Mercado, Hayden Kho, Daiana Menezes, Alodia Gosiengfiao, Iza Calzado, Bing Loyzaga, Edu Manzano and Grace Lee.
?Dr. Vicki Belo herself was hands-on during the event, helping out the cashier and bagging the items into biodegradable plastic bags. In addition to the garage sale, Dr. Vicki auctioned off some of her designer bags through her instagram account. Belo Medical Group also donated used tarpaulins, and Belo employees donated their Christmas basket budgets to the cause.
