Netizens gladly helped a student’s “Piso Para sa Laptop” fund drive – and he was able to buy a new laptop for himself and his siblings!

Alvin Francisco Eusebio II is an incoming second year BS biology student at Catanduanes State University — College of Arts and Sciences in Virac, Catanduanes. Because online learning is being implemented in schools this year, he and his siblings needed to have a computer and internet connection at home.

With the family struggling with their finances, Alvin decided to ask help from netizens so they can buy a laptop they all can use for school. Launching what he calls as ““Piso Para sa Laptop” fund drive, Alvin asked his friends and also netizens to support them by sending him even just Php1 (piso) to his GCASH account.

Alvin pleaded for netizens’ help, explaining that his family is poor and he has three other siblings who would be sharing the laptop.

Kami po ay apat sa pamilya na mag-aaral. Ako po ay 2nd year College. [Mga] kapatid ko po ay 1st year College, isang Grade 10, at isang Grade 7 ngayong pasukan… Kumakatok po ko sa inyong mga puso para sa mga gagamitin namin sa darating na pasukan,” Alvin wrote in a post that has since gone viral, with a number of netizens responding to his plea.

Indeed, thousands of people helped. Some sent Php1 and others more – and everyone was happy to see that Alvin was later able to buy the laptop they needed for school.

Yung sira din laptop ko pero willing ako mag send din ng konting halaga para sa students na gusto mag aral. Malayo ang mararating ng piso natin basta tulong tulong,” another wrote.
