Companies Help Yolanda Victims

I've been promoting via my Twitter and Instragram ways to help the Yolanda victims from time to time and did my part in helping as well. I need not mention what I have done but I do want to point out some of the efforts other companies have done.

Solaire Resort and Casino X Resorts World Manila
Interesting collaborations from companies who are known to be competitors are working together for the better good. Solaire, one of the newest and biggest hotel resort and casino in Manila collaborated with Resorts World Manila to help repack for the victims of typhoon Yolanda. This project was done under PAGCOR. Interested volunteers may proceed to Manila Marriot Hotel basement parking (Newport Blvd, Manila) on November 16, 2013 (Whole Day)

Here's the creative image they made for this project:

Sofitel Philippine Plaza

Sofitel Philippine Plaza targets to raise 5 million pesos for this cause. All Sofitel Ambassadors in Manila are also donating cash and preparing relief goods to deliver to legitimate foundations and designated government agencies by end of this week. Also, they also launched an international fundraising campaign to solicit donations from all over the world which could help raise funds that will help to deliver relief goods to the provinces ravaged by monstrous storm surge and massive flooding.

Smart X Globe X Sun
One of the rarest collaborations, Smart Sun and Globe jointly helped Yolanda victims by offering 25 free SMS per day for five days that may be used for local and international text messages. The joint offer will be available to subscribers in Tacloban City and the provinces of Aklan, Antique, Capiz, Leyte, northern Cebu and the Samar. This offer was valid from November 13 to 17.

Smart creates an easy way to help via load credits
Mobile phone users from over 40 countries can now directly donate to HelpPh ( by sending airtime load to PDRF through BayadLoad, a mobile money service of Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) approved by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (the Philippine Central Bank) for this purpose.

To contribute to HelpPh, mobile phone subscribers overseas must key-in +63-999-7-000-000 (12-digits) as the beneficiary mobile number and then send their donation using the airtime top-up procedure of their specific mobile network operator. The maximum amount per day is US$10. This fund-raising program will continue until December 31, 2013.
