She gave away the skirt she wore to her Valentine’s Day date with Jericho Rosales.

Power couple Jericho Rosales and Kim Jones recently made headlines because of their rescue efforts in a flooded subdivision in Marikina. Using their surfboards, the couple waded through flooded streets hoping to help residents trapped in their homes because of Typhoon Ulysses. Netizens couldn’t help but upload the couple’s good will and quite heroic efforts to help their neighbors.

In a throwback post  on Preview’s official Facebook account, one user shared about another act of kindness of Kim Jones did back in 2013. It was November 8, 2013 when Typhoon Yolanda struck the Philippines, and it’s still considered as the strongest tropical cyclone to have made landfall in recorded history.

According to Pau Mojica, she found out about the auction through Kim's Facebook page back in 2013. "I have been fangirling over her since college because of her lovely voice, wit, and looks.  I constantly visited and still visit her website (www.kimcamjones.com) just to read her blogs," Pau tells Preview. "When the super Typhoon Yolanda hit the country in 2013, she announced on her Facebook page that she’d auction her clothes and #missjones outfits on eBay.ph to be donated to relief efforts.  I was screaming because her pieces were all pretty. I wanted them all."

"My heart leapt when I learned that I had won the Forever21 red leatherette skirt for P550. For sure those lucky ladies who got the rest of the items felt the same.  She was so sweet and such an accommodating seller.  It thrilled me even more when she sent the item because it came with a handwritten letter.  Her penmanship is also as beautiful as her heart. She wrote that she wore the skirt once to a Valentine’s Day dinner with actor Jericho Rosales, who's now her husband. Kinilig ako!"
