Alden Richards clarifies that 'Imagine You & Me' block screening proceeds go to charity
July 28 2016
Alden Richards counts himself blessed to have fans that support him through and through. One of the efforts he lauds his fan club Aldendatics for is their tirelessness in arranging block screenings for his and Maine Mendoza’s movie Imagine You & Me.
During the thanksgiving party he threw for members of the entertainment press, he shared that he tried to drop by each screening if his work schedule permits.
“The purpose po talaga of the block screening is for the fans to see the movie exclusively po so nag-organize [ang] Aldenatics ng block screening. There were a lot of fan clubs po. Since it was shown, I made an effort to visit every single block screening po na kaya naman daanan,” he said.
He noted that the reason why ticket prices cost a little bit more than usual was because proceeds would be donated to charity.
“Kaya nasilip po siya na medyo overpriced is hindi po nasabi na sa charity po talaga pumupunta 'yung kinikita po ng mga block screenings po and I really don’t receive anything from any of that,” he added.
The Pambansang Bae also clarified that he didn’t and wouldn’t charge anyone to be able to meet him.
“And kung may lumalabas man po na nagpapabayad po ako ng certain amount for the people to meet me, alam n'yo naman po 'yan na hindi po kailangan, mayaman o mahirap, may pera o wala, para po ma-meet ako,” he declared.
