Willie Revillame to give away 1,000 tablets to students


Willie Revillame is giving away tablets to students as classes move online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The celebrity TV host announced via his GMA variety show Wowowin on Wednesday that he will be distributing 1,000 android tablets to students who cannot afford to buy one. Each tablet will also come with a stand to hold the device. 

“Ito ho ipapamigay po ito sa mga batang walang pambili ng tablet,” he said. 

“Umorder ako ng marami ho para sa pasukan ng mga bata. Kasi maraming nakikiusap sa akin, ‘Pwede ba ‘yung para sa pag-aaral ng mga anak namin?’ ‘Di ba? Siguro naman tama naman ‘yung ginawa natin,” he added.

Fondly called Kuya Wil by his viewers, Revillame earlier distributed cash donations, sacks of rice and jackets to jeepney drivers.
