DOCOMO's supertyphoon contributions top $8M

Posted: Updated:

In true 'Better Together' spirit, DOCOMO PACIFIC and its loyal customers and community and business partners are making a meaningful contribution to families affected by Supertyphoon Yutu.

Through a collective effort, DOCOMO PACIFIC has helped contribute more than $8 million worth of services, donations, and public outreach to the rebuilding and recovery process of the Marianas following the typhoon.

The company's CEO and President Roderick Boss states, "Just as we believe that communication transforms lives, more importantly, we know the tremendous responsibility we have to our community to utilize our resources, technology, and services in times of need. We continue to stand with the CNMI and offer our full support as we rebuild and recover. Meanwhile, the power of technology, especially the use of mobile devices, has helped highlight a new generation of philanthropists who want to make a difference. We are extremely touched by the generosity of our customers and community & business partners and thank them for their contributions.

"The CNMI holds a special place in our hearts, so we're appreciative of all the collective efforts by our island communities."Immediately following the typhoon, DOCOMO PACIFIC pledged its full support to the recovery process by offering free mobile, internet, TV and phone services including free data top-ups from October 24 to December 31 last year. Thanks to their generous contributions, DOCOMO PACIFIC customers have raised $4,300 to be donated to the American Red Cross Relief Efforts in Saipan and Tinian. The funds were generated strictly through a text-to-donate fundraising initiative that allowed DOCOMO PACIFIC customers to use their mobile devices to provide immediate support."
