Mark Anthony Perez, a young computer programmer from Tarlac, has been a trending topic on social media for the past few days. He is also known in his vlogs as Mr. Kapanalig. He offered his service for free to those who are in need and can’t afford costly repairs nor augment their own laptops or desktops for their online classes.
Mark previously shared on a Facebook post that he wanted to help in the simplest way he can. He said when he was in need, many people helped him and he is just returning the goodness he received.
“Hindi ko alam kung bakit ko to ginagawa, ang alam ko lang gusto ko lang makatulong kahit sa simple bagay lang na ganito. Minsan na din akong nahirapan at may mga taong tumulong sa’kin. Panahon na para ako naman ang magbalik ng tulong para sa iba.”- Mark Anthony Perez
Free Repair Service of Devices for Student’s Online Learning Campaign.
Netizens laud the efforts of Mark and he also inspired fellow programmers to join his Free Repair Service of Devices for Student’s Online Learning Campaign. He even called for donations of broken laptops; saying he is willing to repair those for the benefit of the students.
“Priority po natin yung mga hirap talaga, if wala kang pampagawa at wala kang laptop, ikaw ang priority. Inuulit ko yung mga hirap talaga yung priority. If may PC or laptop po kayo na sira na o hindi na ginagamit donate n’yo na lang po para masubukan ko pong ayusin at maibigay natin sa mga student na nangangailangan,” Mark said on his post.
From there, many have already donated laptops that need repairs. And recently, he proudly announced “Gigahertz Manila Donated 49 Laptops” which also comes with 43 pieces of 2-gigabyte (GB) random-access memory (RAM), four pieces of 4-GB RAM, and eight pieces of 8-GB RAM.
Indeed, Mark’s effort already reached many people and will be a big contributing factor for the education of many students.
Hats off to a man with a good heart.
