Sir Wilbert Tolentino, Living The Concept of Pay It Forward with His Sir Wil Online Challenge


Finally, I was able to watch the movie "Pay It Forward" in full length. I always hear the title in different financial literacy seminars, and it did lift my interest to know more about the concept. Repaying the help that you get by helping others. Looking at it closely, the young boy character named Trevor created the diagram about the idea, and it is somehow similar to the concept of the networking companies that we know. Each person will have to help three different people, and each of the three persons must help three other people. In a much simpler explanation, it is a matter of cascading down the kind of help to people who are in need.

Help! That's where we all right now we're in a situation that people need help. Probably it is natural for us, Filipinos, extending aid to someone in need, the only difference in today's position is that we are battling a pandemic crisis, in a situation where viruses are unknown and without an antidote.

I'm not sure if Sir Wilbert Tolentino has watched or heard about the phrase 'pay it forward' because I am pretty sure that his deeds are similar to that concept. He is helping more than the three persons through his different initiatives. Only a person gifted with a big heart can do something like this.


If others are moving their help into the physical environment where there is still the scare of being affected by the virus, Sir Wil's aid is running online. Yes, most of his current initiatives are online and it is tagged as Sir Wil Online Challenge. This is his way of doing his advocacy, which is dubbed as “Stay Home, Save Lives. We Will Beat COVID 19.”

The Online Challenges run by Sir Wil does not only help people financially, but it also helps in terms of keeping the mental and emotional state of a person, plus the awareness of how to fight COVID 19. Through these challenges, people get creative and talented. Keeping away their minds from stress, worry, and fear.




Wait, who is Sir Wilbert Tolentino or Sir Wil, by the way? Well, first he's not Prince Ali from Aladdin or a Chieftain of Tribal group from centuries ago and not even the Pharaoh of Egypt.


Sir Wil or Wilbert Tolentino is a simple Filipino who aspire success not only for himself but for his fellow Pinoys. For his records, he is the first Pinoy who wins the title of Mr. Gay World. He is also one of the successful entrepreneurs in the country, a prominent personality leading in the upliftment of the LGBTQIA community, an influencer, and a generous person who is willing to give aid and assistance to different sectors of the society.
