17 Sep – The upcoming "Darna" star Jane de Leon recently won internet praise for her decision to donate the proceeds of her award to charity.

As reported on ABS-CBN, the young actress, who won the Belo Beauty Special Award at the ABS-CBN Ball over the weekend, revealed that instead of taking the proceeds from the award, she decided to give it all to the beneficiary of the said Ball - the social welfare programme, Bantay Bata 163.

"I really want to help Bantay Kids especially Bantay Education, so that these kids can really finish their studies. It's really important because that's what those kids are dreaming about," she said when asked about the decision.

de Leon said that it is better to be an example to help these children, who may have their own ideas on what they want for the future lives.

On the other hand, another "Darna" star Angel Locsin revealed that she skipped the whole Ball and donated to the Bantay Bata programme directly instead.
