Let ‘Bayanihan’ reign on Bonifacio Day with Tayô Táyo: A We The Youth Vote Online Fundraising Concert

 We The Youth Vote holds fundraising concert for the Samahan ng Nagkakaisang Pantawid ng Pamilya



Admit it or not, 2020 has been a hard year for everyone in the world. In the Philippines, it started with the eruption of Taal Volcano in January, followed by the still on-going COVID-19 outbreak which has been resulting to not just a health crisis but an economic damage, and just recently, a series of typhoons that hit several areas in the country.


It is not an easy task but who else will help and inspire each of the most affected ones to rise up and move forward? Us, Filipinos through our very own custom ‘bayanihan.’ This is what We The Youth Vote (WTYV) wants us to be reminded of as the non-partisan group holds an online fundraising concert for the benefit of the Samahan ng Nagkakaisang Pantawid ng Pamilya (SNPP), an organizational community that champions the continued implementation of expansion of the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.



Dubbed as ‘Tayô Táyo: A WTYV Online Fundraising Concert,’ the digital event is happening on November 30, 2020, in light of the commemoration of the birth of Filipino hero Andres Bonifacio. The phrase “Tayô Táyo” stands for “let’s rise up.”


Streaming live on WTYV’s official Facebook page and Kumu channel, the two-hour concert--from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. PST--is headlined by today’s most sought after acts such as Kean Cipriano, Unique, theater gems Phi Palmos and Gab Pangilinan, bird., Rice Lucido, Glaiza de Castro, Adrian Lindayag, Chai Fonacier, Earl Generao and Pappel, Biahana and a whole lot more.



We The Youth Vote


We The Youth Vote was officially launched in September, shorty after the voter’s registration period began.


“Since its launch, we have attracted the attention and participation of youth leaders nationwide, school organizations, and local celebrities and content creators, helping the movement gain traction, especially on social media,” says the group. “Some of those who have openly expressed support in our advocacy are Macoy Dubs, Ria Atayde, Direk Tonette Jadaone, Kean Cipriano; vloggers Laureen Uy, Kerwin King, and Benny Cua; theater artists Gabby Pangilinan and Phil Palmos, among others.”




Using the introductory hashtags #MasMaramiTayo and #40MStrong, the group taps the young Filipinos or the so-called GenZs and Millennials (18-39 years old) as they comprise the biggest voting population by next election season, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).
