AirAsia partners with World Vision to celebrate the season of giving through a joint Christmas fundraising and awareness building campaign for the benefit of Filipino children.
Launched yesterday (November 18) at the Arctic Bay and Hall of H2O Hotel Manila, the SEE THE WORLD campaign is aimed at raising at least one million pesos to provide sponsorship program for as many Filipino child beneficiaries as possible.
For every AirAsia seats booked or sold in the Philippines from December 1 to 31, this year, five (5) pesos will be automatically donated to World Vision Child Sponsorship Program.
World Vision Philippines National Director Rommel Fuerte, meanwhile, said,
“As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of World Vision here in the Philippines, we are very thankful to have this milestone partnership with AirAsia Philippines. With this significant initiative, we can ensure that every peso that will be donated to World Vision will help a lot of underprivileged Filipino children attain their dreams.”
AirAsia Regional Chief Operating Officer Pete Chareonwongsak said,
“The collaboration between AirAsia and World Vision represents another step forward in our commitment to the philosophy that no corporation can live apart from the community it serves. As a truly Filipino airline, we will always extend a helping hand to the communities we serve.”
Joining the grand launch of the SEE THE WORLD initiative are World Vision Philippines ambassadors Asiansation Christian Bautista, rapper Quest and DJ/Host Gelli Victor.
“Working with World Vision in the Philippines is really a joy for me. Yes, I am able to touch the lives of these children when we reach out to them. But they don’t know how their smiles are able to change me as a person. And with the wonderful ‘See the World’ collaboration of AirAsia and World Vision, each one can have that chance to touch each other’s hearts and celebrate Christmas in a different way.” – Christian Bautista
“I don’t feel any burden being a child sponsor. In fact, it makes me feel wonderful being able to help. And through this ‘See the World’ campaign of AirAsia and World Vision in the Philippines, it will be easier for anyone to help.” – Quest
World Vision Philippines Media and Communications Director Gjeff Lamigo also explains how the Child Sponsorship Program of the organization works to help uplift the lives of many Filipino children and families.
Aside from fundraising efforts, SEE THE WORLD will feature inspiring stories of children from impoverished communities around the country whose lives have changed and caused other children and communities to aspire for better living conditions.
AirAsia Philippines will run a web series online and available in AirAsiaPhilippines facebook starting November 20.
