Last April, Rina Navarro and Bea Alonzo co-founded a passion project called “I AM HOPE”. Their mission, is to augment support for the immediate and long term needs of the frontliners; our first line of defense.
On Saturday, June 20th, Bea took to social media to share that her charitable organisation I AM HOPE donated relief bags and disinfectants for Pasig’s garbage collectors and street sweepers.

“Hi Mama! Nakilala ko na ang paborito mo! Joke,” Bea began her post, referencing a line from her hit film Four Sisters and A Wedding, where she played the daughter of Vico’s real-life mother, actress Coney Reyes.
Bea also said that the donation was in line with the celebration of Father’s Day this Sunday.
“In line with Father’s Day, we intend to celebrate the fathers who choose to serve the community by cleaning the streets and picking up our garbage. MARAMING SALAMAT PO sa mga tatay na street sweepers at garbage collectors sa pagtulong sa ating kumunidad at sa pagttrabaho ng marangal para sa kanilang pamilya. From the I AM HOPE FAMILY, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!”
Friends and fans of Bea where quick to comment how the Mayor and the actress are “bagay”.

In 2013, Bea Alonzo co-starred with Vicos mom Ms. Coney Reyes in Four Sisters and a Wedding. Her role was Coneys second daughter Bobbie who is a succesful corporate communications manager in NY.
In an Instagram post in May, 2020, the group shared: “@iamhope_org reached a new milestone in our donations today, day 70. We have raised a total of P9,000,000 in cash and in kind. We are GRATEFUL for the generosity of our donors.”
Aside from helping frontliners, I am Hope also partnered with the Office of the Vice President to distirbute hygiene kits and relief goods to Cardona, Rizal residents affected by Typhoon Ambo.
