Ladies and ladies at heart, brace yourselves for this breaking news.
GABRIEL MACHT, known the world over as legendary law practitioner HARVEY SPECTER in the provocative television drama SUITS will arrive in the Philippines on March 8, 2014 to visit Ormoc City in Leyte.
Macht’s visit is for Globe Telecom’s ‘Project Wonderful’ in the province. The project is part of Globe’s nation-building efforts helping Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) survivors.
In partnership with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Globe has been granting business to beneficiaries identified by DSWD as part of its Sustainable Livelihood Program, a community-based capacity-building program that seeks to improve the socio-economic status of program participants.
Globe Vice President for Prepaid Business Issa Cabreira said in a press statement received by Ely’s Planet, “We are committed to contribute to nation-building by providing relevant entrepreneurship and livelihood opportunities among typhoon Yolanda survivors in Ormoc so they can rise again and move forward.”
“We hope that through this project, we will be able to teach them to manage sustainable micro-enterprises that will help them move from survival to self-efficiency,” she added.
“Project Wonderful is thankful to Mr. Gabriel Macht for coming in to support us,” Cabreira said.
As part of its Project Wonderful program, Globe takes strides in rebuilding the nation with initiatives that will benefit schools, homes, and livelihood opportunities. Bringing global attention to its commitment to livelihood, Project Wonderful is hoping that through the support of a high caliber actor such as Gabriel Macht, more support will come in months to come.
Macht, for his part said, “Witnessing the devastation of typhoon Haiyan, I felt compelled to raise awareness and financial aid to help thousands of people still struggling to get back on their feet.”
“There is so much work still to do. I’m excited to be a part of rebuilding and I’m hoping that so many more will join the effort,” the actor added.
Project Wonderful is a program that reinforces Globe Telecom’s commitment to subscribers, businesses, and the nation. Project Wonderful has three (3) pillars: Nation-building, which aims to build a wonderful and resilient country with programs that will rebuild homes and schools as well as provide livelihood opportunities to individuals and families in need, Culture-building, which shapes Globe to become a more customer-centric organization, fueled by a common passion to help and live a culture of service guided by its renewed mission, vision, and values, and Brand-building, which brings to life the telco’s passion and commitment to the customer as a strong challenger brand that leads the industry with innovative and relevant products and services.
