In celebration of her 15 million subscribers on YouTube, Ivana Alawi distributed 8,000 food packs with P150 each, giving away a total of P1.2 million cash to people who are in need.
Together with her family, the "A Family Affair" actress personally prepared the food packs, with each containing rice, canned goods, a Korean snack, and a soap bar from her very own skincare brand, as seen in a vlog uploaded n Sunday, August 7. They also cooked champorado, which they distributed along with the food packs.
While Ivana reached the milestone last February, the actress said she waited for her family to settle in with their new house first before pushing through with their initiative.
“It’s a good start sa aking paglipat na mag-share ng love kasi mas magaan sa bahay kapag lagi kang namimigay. Ice-celebrate natin ang pag-hit natin ng 15 million subscribers,” she said in the video.
The vlogger-actress then expressed her gratitude to everyone who have been continuously showing their support for her vlogs and her family for the past years.
Sobrang thank you sa inyo for watching and supporting us and loving us and subscribing to us. Sobrang blessed ako na nand'yan kayo. Super ibabalik namin lahat ng blessings na ibinibigay niyo sa amin, and also the love and support na ibinibigay niyo sa pamilya ko," she said.

This isn't the first time Ivana gave back to people who are in need. Last year, she went viral for giving a shopping spree to a street vendor who willingly helped her and gave her 20 pesos during their encounter.
