It’s that most wonderful time of the year once again. Parols and lights are set up, Noche Buenas are prepared, and perhaps most noticeably, Christmas songs are played practically everywhere.
This year, Globe is giving customers a chance to create new traditions with their favorite holiday music, while supporting a good cause. Three young local artists — Karencitta, Kiana V, and Reese Lansangan — place their own twist on caroling by reinventing classic Christmas songs complete with music videos. And just like caroling here in the Philippines, viewers can give Aguinaldos in the form of donations to Smile Train, an international children’s charity for kids with cleft lip and palate, via Globe Rewards or GCash.
After reaching over 17 million views on YouTube for her viral hit song, Cebuana, and rising to international stardom, Karencitta takes her signature style and mixes it with the timeless, “Ang Pasko ay Sumapit.” True to the message of creating new traditions, Kiana V adds a contemporary twist to the iconic “Pasko Na Sinta Ko,” popularized by her dad, Mr. Pure Energy himself, Gary Valenciano. Popular recording artist from Elements Music Camp, Reese Lansangan, takes on a more indie pop approach to the beloved, fun classic, “Kumukutikutitap.”
In the spirit of sharing and giving this holiday season, Globe is counting on your generous hearts to help the kids of Smile Train. Donations of any amount can be made via Globe Rewards and GCash. To donate using points, download the Globe Rewards app and select DONATE at the home screen. Choose from the following denominations: 2, 10, 50, and 100 points. Each point is equivalent to P1. Meanwhile, GCash users can donate by downloading the app, choosing the Pay QR option on the home screen, scanning the QR code here, and entering their preferred amount. These blessings will help give kids with cleft lip and palate a merrier Christmas and a brighter future.
Founded in 1999, Smile Train has grown into the world’s leading cleft charity. They advance a sustainable solution and scalable global health model for cleft treatment, drastically improving children’s lives, including their ability to eat, breathe, speak, and ultimately thrive. Since 2001, they have provided over 50,000 surgeries in the Philippines. Every year, they support 6,000+ cleft treatments for Filipinos.
