The event is a combination of workout meditation and a discussion about mental health and wellness.

Hilario will provide mental healthcare tips while Los Angeles trainer Leah Recania will conduct a 35-minute workout. Recania also runs an organization called “Hey Strong Babe” which aims to empower women “from the inside out.”

Hilario is inviting everyone to join the session via Zoom on April 25 at 5:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)/ April 26 at 10:30 a.m. (Saipan Time). See

The session is free but donation is optional, Hilario said, adding that she will match donations up to $500 and all proceeds will go to Karidat.

“I approached Karidat as the recipient because I’ve heard many good things about the non-profit through multiple sources. I wanted to choose a trustworthy organization that serves the people directly,” Hilario said in an email to Variety.

A church-based charitable group, Karidat is also providing food and rental assistance to people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

After Super Typhoon Yutu hit Tinian and Saipan in Oct. 2018, Hilario and her parents shipped 60 boxes of relief goods to the typhoon victims.

Hilario, who resides in San Jose, California, is the daughter of Robert Hilario and Lucille Camacho Hilario. Her grandparents are Luis Salas Camacho (familian Mang) and Fermina Mendiola Camacho.

Aside from raising money for Karidat, Ana Hilario also wants to help people “manage their emotions during this pandemic, and practice self-care for mental and physical wellness.”

“I’m a crisis counselor for CrisisTextline as well,” she added, “so I offer a listening ear for those who want to reach out.”

Asia Hilario blogs at Isla Honey blog and advocates for women empowerment and participating in humanitarian community projects. In 2019, she received a recognition as Woman of the Year by Women on the Rise, an organization based in South San Francisco, California.
