“They are from all over the country – we have some from Palawan, Mindanao and Cebu. So, it’s really a Philippine-wide sculpture shop, and what’s really nice is that all of the artists have joined because they want to support the Club and the Gift of Life,” said Delgado.
Tordesillas also lauded the Alay Sining artists calling them the “heroes” in this project.

“They are the real heroes of this program because they are the ones contributing their works, their artistry, and their hearts for this particular project. Without the artists, there will be no Alay Sining. We have had very generous artists who have contributed their talents to the cause over the years, so that the hearts of children are saved.”
Since hindi kami maka-contribute ng cash, kino-contribute namin ang aming works. Hindi din kasi magiging full ang pagka-artist namin kung wala kaming tinatawag na kawanggawa. So ‘yun lang ang maitutulong namin… ang aming mga sariling gawa
