Our new Darna, Jane De Leon, just proved that she has the heart and dedication of a superhero.
The actress, who was a total standout with her lilac dress at the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball last September 14, was awarded as the Belo Beauty On The Rise that night. Jane then decided to donate her prize to Bantay Bata’s latest project, "Bantay Edukasyon" right after the event.
“I really want to help Bantay Bata especially 'Bantay Edukasyon' para makatulong talaga na matapos 'yung pag-aaral nila," she revealed in an interview with Metro.Style.
"It’s really important kasi mga bata 'yan, eh—nangangarap 'yan. Hindi natin alam kung nasaan 'yung mga magulang nila, at kung ano 'yung mga gusto nilang gawin para sa buhay nila in the future. Mas maganda na maging ehemplo tayo para mas makatulong sa kanila,” she enthused.
