Bantay Bata makes donation easier
Bantay Bata 163, in partnership with Globe Telecom through its subsidiary G-Xchange Inc. (GXI), has created a more convenient way for people to give assistance.
Paolo Baltao, GXI president, said GCash subscribers can donate any amount, even as low as P1.
He said donors do not need to go to the bank to deposit their donations.
“By donating to Bantay Bata through GCash, more people can help the needy children,” Baltao said.
GCash subscribers can use the GCash Android and BlackBerry Mobile App and dial *143# for free (and select GCash) on their phones to donate to Bantay Bata.
The GCash wallet may be loaded through online bank transfers (www.globe.com.ph/gcash), mobile banking with BPI (by dialing *119#) and Unionbank, BancNet ATMs or any of the more than 7,000 GCash outlets nationwide.
Bantay Bata 163 is giving away 12 Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s to lucky donors.
From April 26 to June 26, every donation of at least P10 via GCash earns one electronic entry for the raffle draw on June 28.
Since 1997, Bantay Bata has done more than 1,700 rescue missions, addressed over 40,000 medical cases, and handled more than 1,600 legal cases.
More than 51,000 children benefitted from its feeding program, while 3,355 kids became Bantay Edukasyon scholars.
