To win is to give back for "Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10" Big Winner Anji Salvacion, who aims to help other people with her PHP 2 million prize money from the reality show.
“'Yung gagawin ko sa premyo, I’ll do good things with it and I can’t wait to help," the singer said in a report by ABS-CBN Entertainment.
"Thank you to God for giving me this opportunity and for giving me this biggest blessing in life," she added.

More than her win, the singer said she's most grateful for the support and trust she received from the public. "It is not the title but it is how people trusted me. That’s my biggest, biggest blessing, how people look up to me," she stated.
Anji's mom, Melisa Gorbulev, also couldn't be more grateful for the support her daughter received throughout her "PBB" journey.
“There’s no words to explain or to express how much I am proud of (Anji). Glory to God. And also salamat sa lahat ng sumusuporta sa anak ko. Thank you for believing in her, thank you sa lahat ng sumusuporta,” she said.
Anji is no stranger to helping other people. Prior to re-entering "PBB" earlier this month, the 19-year-old singer went home to her hometown in Siargao island to give back to her kababayans heavily devastated by Typhoon Odette.
"It's actually a part of me din na going home to give back to my kababayans. And I'm so glad na ito ‘yung parang naging bonding namin ng family ko to give back who are in need of help," she said.
Dubbed as the "Singing Sweetheart ng Siargao," Anji bested four other housemates during the Big Night held on Sunday, May 29. She won a total of 40.42% of the combined votes to save and evict.
