Fencer Maxine Esteban launches another fundraiser, this time for family e-learning kits

Nov 25, 2020

INSTEAD of accepting personal gifts for her 20th birthday, Filipina foil fencer Maxine Esteban is encouraging family and friends to donate to a new fundraiser she's putting up.


    This time, she wants to help out in the e-learning needs of kids who may not yet have the tools they need to keep up in their online studies.

    Her mini-project will cater to the children of security guards, administration and maintenance staff of certain private institutions. (She asked not to disclose the names of these institutions for now.) The national team fencer will work closely with stakeholders for the list of possible beneficiaries.

    In this way, the Ateneo student believes she can continue serving her country in her own little way, even while sports is still on pause.

    "Given the economic condition of our country, and the financial repercussion on the masses. It is really not appropriate to engage in any merry making. I ask from the people around me to donate to this cause in lieu of gifts," she shared with SPIN Life.

    "Donations will be used to purchase 10.1" HD Display Android tablets (4GB RAM, 64GB ROM, and 8000 mAh battery). Each tablet costs P5,995 or $120," she wrote in her post.

    Earlier in the year, Esteban launched a successful donation drive for frontliners.

    Last April, she was able to collect over P300,000, which she used to buy PPEs, food, and groceries for frontliners and affected barangays during the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

    She celebrates her 20th birthday on November 26. Esteban hopes to purchase at least 50 gadgets, and help at least 20 children.
