Heart Evangelista has been one of the most active celebrities in helping people fight COVID-19 related problems.
Her selfless acts have garnered praise from the public and rightfully so.
The actress doesn’t care much for politics as long as she is able to help out, as seen in her recent tweets.
Politics is not for me 🙏🏻❤️ I can help without that kind of power . ❤️ https://t.co/DjETMxfk1g

Late in April when ECQ was still implemented, she was able to help out more than 200 people who were in “really bad situations,” and those who were “in immediate need” due to medical issues. Mothers were also given milk for their children.
Her status as a celebrity was significant. She even sent Vitamin C to health workers for added immunity against disease. Husband Chiz Escudero helped out Sorsogon residents who were stranded as well.
“[Yes,] I do get overwhelmed, so I just tell myself to breathe and take it one day at a time,” she said. “On some days, it gets difficult because online banking goes down, but again, I just try to keep things going no matter how slowly,” Heart previously said in one of her posts.
Classes remain suspended with online learning emerging as the new way to continue education. However, this upcoming initiative has raised a lot of questions, mainly whether or not it would be possible for every student to experience it since the Philippines has one the slowest internet connections in the world. Not only that, but not every student has a gadget to even access the internet, and this is where Heart stepped in to help.
She went on Twitter and asked people to directly message her on Instagram so she can give away free tablets for online learning.
For those who don’t have tablets for online school please dm me on ig… I will be giving away as much tablets as I can 🙏🏻 pic.twitter.com/0hi8DlCxql

Heart recently launched “Big Heart Ph” to help equip students in need with tools for them to be able to continue their education.”
“This pandemic has affected so many people in [sic] 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. Something bigger,” Heart said on her Instagram post.
“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,” the Kapuso actress added.
She also previously sold one of her paintings to aid frontliners.
