- An architecture student helped raise funds to buy his best friend a new gadget for their online class
- John Christian Turla said his best friend Adrian Erestain doesn’t have any gadget since the first semester and has only been borrowing from them
- Due to the lockdown, they won’t be able to lend their laptop to Adrian but John Christian is determined to help his friend buy his own gadget
An architecture and fine arts student’s appeal for his best friend online has gone viral.
John Christian Turla wrote a lengthy post asking the public for donations to help raise funds to buy his best friend, Adrian Erestain, a new gadget.
According to John Christian, Adrian doesn’t have any cellphone or laptop at all and has only been borrowing from him or from their other classmates. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s lockdown, they are now having trouble sharing their gadgets with Adrian.
He wrote, “Simula po 1st sem wala po siyang sariling cellphone /gadget na ginagamit pang eskwela. Ngunit kahit na ganoon, nakakagawa siya ng paraan para makapagpasa ng mga requirements sa lahat ng subjects na meron kami. Ang galing ‘di ba? Pinapahiram namin siya ng cellphone/laptop before kapag kailangan niya ito para sa aming mga asignatura. Ngunit ngayong panahon ng pandemya, hindi namin siya mapapahiram.”
John Christian said his best friend is one resourceful and hardworking student and deserves to be supported.
“Kaya po taos-puso po akong nanghihingi ng tulong na financial sa inyo para sa best friend ko. Ayaw ko pong maging hadlang ang situation na mayroon ang mundo ngayon para masira ang kanyang pangarap,” John Christian said.
John Christian also promised to shoulder the weekly cellphone load of Adrian. He also shared photos of the plates made by Adrian where he got a high score in class.
