Downplaying their iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch unlike in the previous years, Globe instead use its launch event to also extend assistance to the victim of Typhoon Yolanda on top of their existing relief efforts.
During the launch, Globe has set up a booth where subscribers can register to GCASH to send monetary donations to the Philippine Red Cross. Additionally, Globe matched the total GCASH donations made by its customers. In-kind donations are also being collected in special areas during the launch event.
“œAs part of our commitment to help in nation-building efforts after the onslaught of Typhoon Yolanda that affected millions of lives, we are doing away with the usual grand launch event for the iPhone and instead use this platform to augment what we’re doing for our kababayans using our GCASH facility,” said Peter Bithos, Chief Operating Advisor for Consumer Business at Globe. “œThis year’s launch will also focus on providing a delightful customer experience for subscribers who have trusted our expertise in iPhone and leadership in postpaid.”
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.
