Here’s a Simple Way to Send Love to Our Frontliners

It’s been months since the country started its fight against COVID-19, but many will agree that the working conditions of those at its front lines—be it in hospitals, at checkpoints, or in supermarkets—still leave a lot to be desired.

The truth is clear: many frontliners are in need of as much help as they can get, especially as quarantine restrictions are being lifted and COVID-19 cases are rising within the country. To aid them, some good samaritans are going above and beyond by organizing donation drives and relief operations, while others are helping from the safety of their homes by chipping in what they can to feed, move, and equip frontliners as they work to contain the pandemic.

Others have small gifts delivered—not an easy task, with mobility currently limited in most cities—just to brighten their days. For Globe Platinum subscribers, however, it’s a lot easier: Sending frontliners a treat to show appreciation for their hard work is as simple as shooting a message over Facebook Messenger.

With the network’s new Thank-A-Hero program, subscribers need only chat with Thea, Globe Platinum’s exclusive concierge for premium services ranging from dining and hotel reservations to travel planning and access to events.

Ask Thea about the Thank-A-Hero program, and you’ll be allowed to choose beneficiaries among Globe’s partner institutions. These include COVID-19 medical staff and health workers from partner hospitals such as the Veterans Memorial Medical Center, the Philippine Children's Medical Center, and the Pasig City General Hospital; police staff deployed in various checkpoints around Metro Manila; and essential workers from key branches of supermarket chain Puregold.

Simply choose your beneficiary and select a gift—it can be anything from CoCo's Panda Milk Tea to half a dozen assorted doughnuts from J. Co—and it's done. The first token you give to essential workers is on Globe Platinum, and they even take care of the delivery. You can get more gifts for your chosen beneficiary by paying through GCash or bank transfers.

Showing your appreciation to frontliners and essential workers all over the country is as easy as that—and helping them so conveniently is made possible with Globe Platinum.

To join Globe in showing appreciation to frontliners through its Thank-A-Hero program—or to start sending gifts to frontliners—you can message Thea on Facebook Messenger. And if you’d like to upgrade to a Globe Platinum Plan, visit the network’s official website.
