Globe iPhone launch supports Yolanda relief efforts!

Globe Telecom launch iPhone 5s and 5c in support of victims of recent typhoon Yolanda that affected millions of Filipinos in Visayas.

On top of its existing efforts to aid in disaster relief operations for communities and individuals affected by Typhoon Yolanda, Globe will use its launch event for the newest iPhone models to extend further assistance to the victims of the super typhoon.

Globe will accept monetary donations via GCASH, in-kind relief goods from subscribers. They will set up a booth where subscribers can register to GCASH to send monetary donations at the speed of sending a text message. Using GCASH as donation facility, subscribers can send money to support the relief operations of the Philippine National Red Cross. We are also encouraged to bring in-kind donations such as canned goods, noodles, usable clothes, blankets, and mosquito nets, where a special area at the event will accommodate the relief goods. 

Augmenting the donations received at the launch event, Globe will match the total GCASH donations made by its customers.

Globe recently launched the iPhone 5s and 5c under its suite of first-ever fully-customizable iPhone postpaid plans, including an exclusive upgrade program dubbed as Globe iPhone Forever that allows new and existing subscribers to swap their current devices with an iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c, allowing them to get a new iPhone every year for free or with minimal cashout.

For as low as Plan 1599 under the iPhone Forever suite of plans, subscribers can get the iPhone 5c 16GB for free over a 24-month contract period. Globe subscribers also get one-month free subscription to Globe Gadget Care and free access to Facebook mobile until January 2014. Subscribers who will avail of the newest iPhone devices on launch day are also eligible to avail of a free 1-year subscription to GCASH Virtual Pay and get up to 50% off on iPhone accessories.

The worthwhile move is part of the telco’s Bangon Pinoy program, an enterprise-wide disaster response initiative that aims to have a unified system for donations, relief efforts, and corporate social responsibility programs across products and services.
