While there is still no mechanics for the giveaway, Revilla encouraged followers to like and subscribe to his social media pages.

Revilla, likewise, revealed that the revenue he earned from his social media pages will be used for raffle prizes.

“Yung mga kikitain dyan sa YouTube, kikitain dito (Facebook), lahat po yan itutulong natin,” he said.


(The earning that we will get from YouTube and Facebook, we will use that to help you.)

“Simula po nung nagkaroon ako ng Facebook page, in fact, na-monetize na po ‘to, malaki-laki na rin ‘yung kinikita natin. At ‘yun po ay idadagdag din natin sa mga ipapa-raffle natin. Malaki na rin ‘yun, I think more than $10,000,” he added.

(Since I started my Facebook page, in fact, it has already been monetized. We earned a big revenue. And we will include that in the raffle. That’s also a big amount, I think more than $10,000.)

Revilla previously contracted the new strain of the coronavirus in early August. He was rushed to the hospital on Aug. 18 after developing pneumonia and was discharged a week after.
