In order to help more students avail of online education, Edu Manzano and his friends have started a donation drive to help provide more computers to schools and different organizations who can help children shift to online learning. In his Instagram post last July 20, Edu shared that their first batch of donations included 10 computers which was turned over to the Philippine Foundation of Tahanan ng Panginoon, Inc., a non-profit, tax exempt Christian ministry associated with Ligaya ng Panginoon in Quezon City.

In the same post, the 64-year-old actor and politician also thanked the people who pitched in to help support the ongoing computer donation drive.

He wrote, “First batch of 10 computers for the less-fortunate children of Tahanan ng Panginoon. With online/e-learning inevitable children need computers to continue their education and be able to contribute positively to society. Thanks to those who have shared their blessings. More to follow. #goodvibeslang @nolialleje @elsubastahero @jtr FYI, the computer sets will go to schools and different organizations para mas marami ang makikinabang.”
