2nd Wish 107.5 Music Awards Gives Over Php 1 Million to Charity

Posted on: January 16th, 2017

For a station that puts charity at its core, the 2nd Wish 107.5 Music Awards is nothing but a great avenue to harmoniously blend two of its advocacies — sharing good music and granting wishes.

“Everything that you have witnessed tonight started with just a wish and of course a fervent prayer that we will always be able to take the first step to complete a noble deed, that we will be able to introduce innovations and transform them into something more rewarding for a greater number of individuals,” Mr. Daniel Razon, Chairman and CEO of Breakthrough and Milestones Productions International – Wish 107.5, remarked in a special audio-visual presentation.

Just like in the inaugural year of the music awards, the 2nd WMA has granted Php 100,000 to the chosen beneficiaries of the winners of the major categories.

Morissette, who bagged four of the major awards — Best WISHclusive Performance by a Female Artist, Best WISHclusive Collaboration (with Arnel Pineda), Wish Original Song of the Year by a Female Artist, and Wish Female Artist of the Year — donated Php 350,000 to Meritxell Children’s World Foundation, Inc.

Pineda, on the other hand, gave out Php 50,000 to his beneficiary, the Arnel Pineda Foundation.

Darren Espanto, another big winner, was able to give Php 300,000 to his beneficiary, World Vision, for bagging the Best WISHclusive Performance by a Young Artist, Wish Original Song by a Male Artist, and Wish Young Artist awards.

Meanwhile, RnB crooner Jason Dy gave a total of Php 200,000 to Food for the Hungry Philippines, Inc. after scooping two major awards — Wish Male Artist of the Year and Best WISHclusive Performance by a Male Artist.

Anawim Lay Mission and Real Life Foundation each received Php 100,000 as the chosen charitable groups of 4th Impact (Best WISHclusive Performance by a Group or a Duo) and The Juans (Wish Original Song of the Year by a Group or a Duo), respectively.

These cash donations were separate from the Php 25,000 given to the winners per major category.
