MANILA, Philippines — Last Friday Globe Telecom and The Walt Disney Company launched “Time Please,” a nationwide volunteering program that encourages and empowers Filipinos including companies, organizations, employees, families and friends to provide volunteer activities or participate in existing volunteer programs. Time Please supports Globe’s commitment to nine of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and appeals to the Filipinos’ strong culture of volunteerism rooted in the bayanihan spirit to contribute to social development.

Through the volunteer matching portal www.timeplease.ph, developed with Globe Future Maker iVolunteer Philippines and the volunteer portal of Gawad Kalinga, Time Please strives to match individuals or groups of volunteers with various volunteering opportunities around the country.

 “We look at Time Please to extend Globe Telecom’s purpose-led culture to our customers. With the help of technology, we wish to make volunteering more accessible to many Filipinos, thereby making it easier for our partners and customers to contribute to nation building,” said Ernest Cu, president and CEO of Globe Telecom.

“Disney VoluntEARS are committed to supporting and inspiring communities by dedicating our time and skills to help kids and families in need. Time Please is a unique platform that allows kids and families to spend meaningful time together for social good,” shared Veronica Cabalinan, country manager of The Walt Disney Company, Philippines. “We believe that it is our collective responsibility to be at the service of the community where we live.”

Time Please will run from May 25 to Aug. 19 and is open to individuals willing and capable to do volunteer work. Each group should have a minimum of two and a maximum of four individuals to be able to join. The group should also nominate a team leader who is at least 18 years of age with an active Globe or TM number to register the group.

 The group with the most number of volunteer-hour credits at the end of the program will win an all-expense-paid trip to Hong Kong Disneyland.

 Globe customers, partners, and other organizations are invited to register and volunteer at www.timeplease.ph and at the volunteer portal of Gawad Kalinga.
