AS celebrations continued in September, dubbed as 917 month, Globe hoped to rally its customers to help in the fight against Covid-19 by encouraging them to donate their Globe Rewards points to provide support to frontliners, coronavirus patients and indigent families.
Globe has been supporting several initiatives that have directly impacted the ongoing battle against the dreaded disease. It has also customized its digital solutions and platforms such as the GlobeOne app to provide customers a way to show malasakit (compassion) and support for their chosen advocacies anytime and from the safety of their homes.
“As a company, we strive to do our part in contributing to the solution against this ongoing pandemic. Since the launch of the donation feature on Globe Rewards, the support from our customers has been nothing but overwhelming. Through our collective support for our partners in the healthcare sector, we hope to continue working together in alleviating the local health situation,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe chief sustainability officer and senior vice president for Corporate Communications.
Globe has spearheaded several donation drives that have helped organizations at the forefront of the global health crisis. Company employees have organized #OneGlobeVsCovid and have raised over P27.5 million in a fundraising initiative to provide much-need personal protective equipment (PPE), face shields and face masks to health-care workers in 60 hospitals.
“In the early days when resources were scarce, they were ready to lend a hand, making us equipped with ventilators, testing machines, [PPE] all until [we were] sufficiently supported by other groups for us to continue operating. Nagulat kami (We were surprised), even as we sleep, the Globe Rewards continue to pour in. Every time I check with the [PGH] foundation, may pera pa (there is still money). We have the opportunity, now, to put the attention on the most important resource of our hospital, which is our human resource,” said Dr. Legaspi of the initiatives that raised more than P23 million for the Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation.
