Digital donations to give desks and chairs to students


Imagine your kids going to a school in a neatly-pressed uniform, new school books and notebooks inside their new bookbag, only to have to sit uncomfortably on the floor and find a way to concentrate more on their lessons than on their crouching and squatting. For most of us, this can only be imagined. But for more than 5 million Filipino students, it’s as real as life can get.

Thankfully, donations are becoming easier and easier to do. And with the launch of iGiveBackNow to be held on August 23 at the Dusit Thani in Makati, the school chairs donation project in honor of former President and global democracy icon Cory Aquino can now continue on in hopes of helping our young students have a chair and desk of their own. With Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), a non-profit organization for social development, in partnership with UnionBank, the President Corazon C. Aquino School Desk Project will become the primary beneficiary.

So what are you waiting for? Get on your computer, tablet, or smartphone and go to igivebacknow and give back… to our future.
