Pacquiao recently signed a contract with Globe Telecom as a brand ambassador but instead of receiving a cheque for his talent fee, he decided to give a helping hand to those who need it the most after the recent devastating typhoon.

According to Globe, Pacquiao immediately made the decision shortly after the contract signing with Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu and Globe Chairman and Ayala Corporation Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala.

Pacquiao said that aside from trusting the brand, he wants to grab the “God-given opportunity” to help.

“I said yes to Globe because I believe in the company, and I use the company’s services. Not only that, I am given another God-given opportunity to be of help to our kababayans in any way I can. That is why my endorsement fee for this will go to relief efforts to help our kababayans who were affected by the devastation of typhoons Rolly and Ulysses,” he said.

The boxer-turned-senator added it is his commitment to help those who are poor, hungry and in need of shelter.

“Ibibigay natin sa mga taong ito ang ating income dito, ibabalik natin sa taumbayan para makatulong nang malaki sa ating mga kababayan na naghihirap at nagugutom ngayon at nawalan ng tahanan. Sama sama tayong babangon, that is my commitment,” said Pacquiao.

Globe Telecom couldn’t be more impressed with Pacquiao’s generosity. Cu described it as “a very gallant move and one that is so timely.”
