“Time Please” is a nationwide volunteering program that encourages and empowers Filipinos that include companies, organizations, employees, families, and friends that can provide volunteer activities or participate in existing volunteer programs.
The volunteering program supports the telco company’s commitment to 9 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It also mirrors the strong Filipino culture of volunteerism rooted in the Bayanihan spirit.
Individuals or groups of volunteers can be matched with various opportunities around the country via the matching portal TimePlease.ph ^(https://timeplease.ph/) developed with Globe Future Maker iVolunteer Philippines and the volunteer portal of Gawad Kalinga.
“Time Please” provides a wide menu of volunteering activities and united the volunteering ecosystem by connecting volunteer-to-volunteer organizations by using a simple, convenient, and easy to understand web platform.
If groups, companies, or organizations have existing volunteer programs already, they can enlist it in the platform and get their volunteer hours registered in this initiative.
We look at Time Please to extend Globe Telecom’s purpose-led culture to our customers. With the help of technology, we wish to make volunteering more accessible to many Filipinos, thereby, making it easier for our partners and customers to contribute to nation building, said Ernest Cu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Globe Telecom.
It’s an honor to note that the Philippines is ranked 7th globally for the highest number of people volunteering their time with 25 million Filipinos volunteering in 2018, according to Charities Aid Foundation [CAF] World Giving Index 2018.
Individuals from all regions in the Philippines can sign up for free via the portal and form their groups to join volunteer activities enrolled in “Time Please”.
