Before fulfilling her role as the iconic Filipino superhero Darna, Jane De Leon is already a hero through her act of generosity at the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball last September 14.

The actress, who won the special award of Belo Beauty On the Rise, opted to donate the cash prize that came with the coveted award directly to Bantay Bata 163, the ball's beneficiary, without hesitation.

In an interview with Metro.Style, Jane stated her reason for donating for the social welfare program.

“I really want to help Bantay Bata especially Bantay Edukasyon para makatulong talaga na matapos 'yung pag-aaral nila. It’s really important kasi mga bata 'yan ehnangangarap 'yan. Hindi natin alam kung nasaan 'yung mga magulang nila, at kung ano 'yung mga gusto nilang gawin para sa buhay nila in the future. Mas maganda na maging ehemplo tayo para mas makatulong sa kanila,”  she said.

Jane was chosen as the next Darna last July 17, 2019, replacing Liza Soberano. She is not the first star to announce her donation fot Bantay Bata. Angel Locsin, who chose not to attend the ball, opted to donate her supposed ball expenses directly to the social welfare program.
