Habitat for Humanity Philippines, BPI and Zalora helps Yolanda victims
March 18, 2014
Charitable institution Habitat for Humanity Philippines, banking giant Bank of the Philippine Islands, and online store Zalora Philippines recently launched a promo that encourages BPI Cardholders to help Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) survivors by shopping online.
“People have the heart to help, but sometimes don’t know how,” says Habitat CEO & Managing Director Charlie Ayco. “This partnership with BPI and Zalora is a good and easy way of doing so as we now move towards rebuilding the lives of those affected by Haiyan. We have a long way to go and every amount helps in giving these families back their homes.” ends Ayco.
Habitat aims to distribute 30,000 Shelter Repair Kits and build 30,000 core shelters for those affected by Haiyan depending on availability of funding.
“With BPI’s more than 1 million credit cardholders, and Zalora being the leading online fashion store in the country, we hope to generate a lot of donations while they shop,” says BPI VP for Marketing Strategy and Development Angie Florentino. “Thank you, Habitat and Zalora for undertaking this role with us as we continue to help those who survived Haiyan.”
“Thank you for letting us be a part of this initiative,” says Zalora Philippines Co-Founder and Managing Director Paulo L. Campos III. “We are very excited in launching the promo with BPI. I’m sure our online shoppers will be thrilled with the 15% discount voucher they will receive when they donate to Habitat.” ends Campos.
The BPI-Zalora promo is open to all qualified BPI credit card holders. BPI cardholders may donate a minimum of P1,000.00 using any BPI Card variant thru Habitat for Humanity’s website.
Then, they will then receive a 15% ZALORA discount voucher code via e-mail which may be used upon checkout when they shop at Zalora.
