The youth is the hope of our nation.
I am just an individual who wanted to help my fellow countrymen specially the kids in need. The video that I used is not mine but it is from one of the biggest broadcasting network here in the Philippines and the video is about a grandmother who used her earnings just to buy her grandson a smartphone that he can use to participate in online classes.
This is just one sample of the situation here in the Philippines and not everyone can afford to buy a new phone, tablet, or laptop even with the local government's aid it is still not enough for everyone specially in Metro Manila that has a 27.7 million students.
Imagine that most of the students here in the Philippines can't even afford to buy a phone or if they can it will cost them all of their savings just to buy a $100 phone. Out educational system doesn't want to postpone the start of classes and will enforce online classes because if they do chances are the amount of COVID19 patients here in the Philippines will go much higher than we are expecting.
I am reaching out to you guys for your assistance or is there someone out there that can also donate phones, tablets, laptops here in the Philippines for the students to use please feel free to contact me or you can also go directly to some LGU here in the Philippines specially Metro Manila so that they will be the one handling the items for safety purposes also.
If I can raise $5000 here that can buy 50 pieces of decent phones (I think because some phones cost only $100) for studying or online classes here in the Philippines. I wanted to start small and will see the impact of this cause and if it did reach out to your hearts I will let the LGU from Metro Manila handle the money that will be coming from here.

Video reference of a family struggling buy a phone.
Video reference of our mayor Isko Moreno who will be giving tablets to students and laptops for teachers but this amount is still not enough.
PS: Originally wanted to post this to GoFundMe but that website is only for America and since I am not American and I have no bank account in America I found this site more helpful for this case. I am asking for your help guys because this is our chance even just a small amount it will be big if each and everyone of us helped.
