Smart Infinity gives back through charities
Steadfast in its commitment to provide world-class and exclusive services
to the Filipino people, Smart Infinity goes beyond being a premium service provider by enabling its members to “Lead The Change.”
Recently, the premium postpaid brand of Smart Communications Inc. hosted a private lunch honoring several subscribers at The Peninsula Manila. Smart Infinity took the opportunity not only to thank its loyal members, but also shared its advocacy to create positive opportunities for change for the Filipino community.
During the event, Smart Infinity extended its support to the Kalipay Negrense Foundation and Feed The Children Inc., on behalf of its members.
“As a Smart Infinity subscriber, I am honored to be with a brand that supports the things I believe in. I am happy that the brand leads the change by showing that it’s not only about connectivity but also about people,” shared one of the Infinity subscribers present at the event.
Sharing this commitment to lead the change by empowering and uplifting Filipinos are Infinity brand ambassadors Raul and Joanna Francisco, and Donnie and Crickette Tantoco. Both couples have been avid advocates for positive change in the lives of others.
Donnie, the president of Rustan’s Supercenters Inc., believes every Filipino has the right to a better quality of life. Through the Rustan’s Group, he and his wife Crickette want to bring superior customer service to all.
Raul and Joanna, fashion and art entrepreneurs and retailers, are strong supporters of Filipino artisans and artists. Through their businesses, they ensure that they are able to give back to the community, through Kalipay Negrense Foundation, a non-profit organization close to their hearts.
The Kalipay Negrense Foundation Inc. was founded to help the growing number of disadvantaged children in Negros Occidental. What is a now non-profit foundation working for the causes of disadvantaged children—the homeless, physically and sexually abused, malnourished, out of school and youngsters with special needs—started as an effort of a group of people who wanted to make a difference in the lives of these kids.
“Kalipay Negrense’s story is one that’s filled with miracles. We give disadvantaged children hope and a home. At Kalipay, these children are rehabilitated and educated to have a second chance in life and grow up to become productive citizens. We have rescued toddlers who have been so abused they could hardly walk. But there is always hope. We are very thankful to Smart Infinity and Raul and Joanna Francisco,” said Jay Abello, who represented the Negros Occidental-based organization.
“Our family, even our children, is involved with Kalipay Negrense. I am very proud to represent Smart Infinity, which leads the change and believes in things that matter,” said Joanna.
Donnie and Crickette Tantoco, on the other hand, supported Feed the Children, a nongovernment organization with this mission of ending hunger among children worldwide. The Tantocos are also Smart Infinity brand ambassadors.
Since 1984, Feed the Children has worked with kids in the Philippines, expanding their work beyond meals to developing community independence.
Smart Infinity also enjoined its subscribers present at the event to help the two non-profit organizations in any way they can.
“We are proud that Smart Infinity’s brand ambassadors are leading the change not only in their personal and professional lives, but with others as well. They are truly individuals who embody the core values of the brand” said Julie Carceller, Head of Smart Infinity and Smart’s Multi-Segment Marketing.
“Beyond that, they have become an icon of success and inspiration to others, a trait that is part of the brand’s DNA. We want to inspire others to follow suit by providing our members with excellent technology and services —tools they need to start leading the change,” added Carceller.
Smart Infinity curates plans and services according to the needs of members, whether you’re a frequent traveler who needs to be connected all the time, a family that needs the connection of a reliable and consistent network, or a young professional who is always on the go.
