Globe is celebrating National G Day or 917 Day a little differently this year. As a way of giving back to the community, Globe is encouraging its customers to support various advocacies and communities.
Together with Globe’s over 85 million customers nationwide, it hopes to pass on the rewards to communities that have been greatly affected by the pandemic.
Bianca Wong, Head of Globe’s Feel Valued Tribe shared, “Every year, we make this celebration meaningful for our customers, but as the local situation progresses, we want to extend the rewards to our communities, as well. By providing unique experiences for our customers, we can help uplift their lives and the wider community we live in.”
September 17 or 917 is the time of the year when Globe shows its appreciation to its loyal customers. It is inspired by the company’s original and longstanding 917 prefixes.
Since its launch, Globe Rewards’ donation platform has raised almost 40 million pesos worth of cash donations and Rewards points that benefited health workers, frontliners, and medical institutions, as well as communities in need — showing that the Filipino Bayanihan spirit lives on amid these trying times.
As the month-long celebration continues, Globe still has several more activities for their customers that will allow them to give back to partner organizations, communities, or groups that they want to help.
For instance, winners of the G Legends Cup amateur mobile gaming tournament, which culminates on September 22, will have the chance to share their prize with their beneficiary of choice. Music fans can also contribute to the collective support of our partner beneficiaries when they attend the G Music Fest on September 25 and 26.
Likewise, every spends at the first-ever G Super Sale, an exclusive marketplace partnership with Lazada and GLife, from September 15 to 19 will have a corresponding contribution to community-uplifting beneficiaries. All-year-round, customers can also donate their excess or unused points on the new GlobeOne app.
Among the different partner beneficiaries include, Ayala Foundation, GMA Kapuso Foundation, Hero Foundation, Hineleban Foundation, Moments with Fr. Jerry Orbos, Natasha Goulbourn Foundation (Hopeline), the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), PGH Medical Foundation, Inc (PGH MFI), Rise Against Hunger, Rotary Foundation, Save Philippine Seas, Teach for the Philippines, Virtualahan, Walang Iwanan Alliance.
The advocacies they aim to reach include health and wellness, education, environment protection, fighting joblessness and hunger, disaster response, and child safety.
This 917, Atin ang kakayahan para tumulong. Atin ang #GDayEveryday.
