Globe Telecom encourages its customers to share inspiring stories and messages of upliftment to those suffering from fear, stress, anxiety, and depression especially in light of the current pandemic that the world is battling.
Globe’s Hope Bank Facebook Community, aims to serve as an empowering channel for those who are trying to cope with the emotional and mental challenges caused by COVID-19 and to boost the morale of frontliners, patients who are being treated for COVID-19, as well as their families and friends.
Through this online space, community members may share messages of hope for encouragement, strength, and inspiration.
“We want to rally people into becoming a community support group to make others realize that they are not alone, that there are people who are willing to provide empathy and emotional connection virtually. This is the time for each of us to reinforce one another, even if only to provide support to those who need them the most,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.
To contribute to the platform, members may post using the hashtag #SpreadHOPE, both on their personal profiles and in the group. The messages may be in the form of photos, artworks, quotes, songs/lyrics, video or anything that reflects their expression of hope and positivity. They may tag family members and friends or anyone who may benefit from such support.
Hope Bank was first introduced by Globe two years ago as a platform for people with mental health illness seeking help and support.
