I was writing my editor's note for the December issue of our magazine the other day and it was all about the power of sharing. You know how when you give someone a gift you know they really, really like, and it makes them so happy? And seeing that look on their face makes you even happier because you know you were able to make someone happy?
I hardly ever write about work here on my blog but for this I make an exception because I just want to share the good news about this project that's just so full of positivity!
Have you ever gotten those texts from Globe saying you have so-and-so number of points earned? I used to just delete those texts not knowing that I could redeem a "reward" for it. I could've gotten shopping gift certificates, Petron gas coupons, USBs, watches, even cellphones!
But this Christmas is different because our friends from Globe decided to have all these items at 50% off! You only need half the points to claim the reward. Plus, there is now an option to reward our loved ones with these gifts. Meaning we need not claim the gift for ourselves, we can surprise our family, friends, workmates, or special someone with a gift using our points! I asked around on Twitter and apparently so many other people have already made their loved ones happy!
I made this little cheat sheet for all you need to know about this promo to share with you. (I was told its only until October 31!)
If you won't do it to use the points you already have and earned, or if you won't use it to get a gift or give a gift, maybe you might want to use it for this reason: For the gifts you redeem, Globe is giving P1M to UNICEF Philippines on your behalf.
See why I couldn't NOT share the positive news? :)
Gifts that "keep on giving" are the best kind of gifts.
An early merry Christmas to all of you!
