MANILA, Philippines, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sustaining its nation-building efforts under its Project Wonderful program, Globe Telecom hosted a visit for U.S. actor Gabriel Macht of the hit TV series SUITS to the Philippines to help bring to life its advocacy of rebuilding sustainable livelihood programs for typhoon Haiyan-affected families and communities.
Macht, best known for his role as Harvey Specter in the U.S. TV drama, visited Ormoc, Leyte, one of the most impacted areas in Central Philippines to fulfill the rebuilding livelihood pillar of Project Wonderful. "Witnessing the devastation of typhoon Haiyan, I felt compelled to raise awareness and financial aid to help thousands of people still struggling to get back on their feet. There is so much work still to do. I'm excited to be a part of rebuilding and I'm hoping that so many more will join the effort," Macht shared.
Present to welcome Macht was Ormoc Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez who also showed the international celebrity around Ormoc. And his visit to the province was made more meaningful as he led the ceremonial rebuilding and reconstruction of sari-sari stores upon the endorsement of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) under its Sustainable Livelihood Program.
As beneficiaries, the stores will serve as retail distribution channels of Globe that will operate a prepaid load business powered by Globe AutoloadMax (AMAX), an electronic reloading service that allows retailers to automatically top-up prepaid credits to a Globe or TM cellphone.
"We are very honored to host Gabriel Macht's meaningful and cause-worthy visit to the Philippines. We are thankful for Gabriel's participation in Project Wonderful, as he will definitely help create global awareness which will in turn generate more help to benefit the affected families get back on their feet," said Globe Vice President for Prepaid Business Issa Cabreira.
Macht, Congresswoman Gomez and Cabreira were also joined by Globe Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto and some friends from the media who all got a chance to personally have a hand in transforming the stores by repairing it and putting up some posters to signal its official opening for business.
Soon, more stores in the community will receive the same livelihood package from the telco company.
Project Wonderful, Globe Telecom's rehabilitation initiative is part of a unified platform for the company's brand, culture, and nation-building efforts.
