Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera were seen together in Roxas District, Quezon City distributing food to victims. The food was supposed to be for the crew of the soap Genesis, but they decided to distribute the items. After this, Marian returned to GMA Network Center to volunteer for a telethon organized by the network. Marian again volunteered the following day in a relief operation in Pasay City. She has refused to give an interview on why she’s been joining volunteer efforts.
