Sorsogon’s first lady Heart Evangelista is not letting up in her efforts to help people affected by COVID 19, and this time, she is focusing on students.

In a Facebook post, Evangelista shared that she had sold a painting to raise funds so that she could buy tablets for students who will undergo distance learning amid the pandemic.

The tablets are necessary because they have to access the internet for their learning materials.

She said many people had messaged her for help for the students who don’t have gadgets and access to the internet, and she knew she had to do something.

She also said that on July 1, she will launch her Big Heart PH project that aims to give students the tools they need to for their schooling.

Her project not be able to provide for each and every student in need, but it would make a big difference in the lives of those it will reach, she said.

Big heart is all heart!

“A few weeks ago, I sold this painting of mine in hopes to raise funds to do something that my heart was calling me to. ❤️

This pandemic has affected so many people in all walks of life and some of those most affected are the students— under the new normal, they would be required to comply with distance learning or forced to stop their education if they couldn’t. That means that each student would need access to their own tablet and internet. This project of mine started when people were messaging me on Twitter asking for assistance. I knew then in my heart that I had to do something. Someting bigger.

On July 1, I will officially be launching Big Heart PH— a project that will help equip students in need with tools for them to be able to continue their education. ❤️ I know this little project of mine will not be able to help everyone, but I know it will change the lives of those we are able to. ✨ #BigHeartPH @phbigheart,” Evangelista posted.
