103

To help those in the Philippines devastated by Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses, IT&E Guam is hosting a text-to-donate campaign from November 18 to 26, 2020. All funds raised will support the Filipino Community of Guam’s relief efforts for the typhoon victims.

According to news reports, Super Typhoon Rolly (also known as Typhoon Goni) was the strongest typhoon of 2020 when it hit the Philippines on October 31, affecting an estimated 1.6 million people. Just 11 days later, Typhoon Ulysses (also known as Typhoon Vamco) battered the same area, causing extreme flooding that destroyed homes and displaced hundreds of thousands.

IT&E postpaid and prepaid subscribers can help those in need by donating in increments of $1, $3, and $5 by texting their donation to 4357 (HELP).

To donate, subscribers can text:

GIVE1 for $1
GIVE3 for $3
GIVE5 for $5

“Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses have left their mark in the Philippines and their people need help urgently. By uniting with our subscribers, the Filipino Community of Guam and the entire community of Guam, we can help alleviate the impacts of these disasters,” said Jim Oehlerking, CEO of IT&E.

More information about the text-to-donate drive can be found at ite.net.

IT&E unites with organizations like the Filipino Community of Guam to build a strong community dedicated to alleviating hardships and helping all people thrive.
