The move makes it easier for millions of customers across the Philippines to unite for a good cause and contribute in their own little way by simply sending a text message.

To donate, Smart, Sun and TNT subscribers have to text DONATE<space><Amount>and send to 3456.

Subscribers may donate in the amounts of 10, 25, 50, 100, and 500. The donation drive runs from April 22 to July 16, 2020. Customers with successful donations will get a text notification.

Donations will be deducted from a prepaid subscriber’s load or will be posted on the next monthly bill for postpaid customers.

Proceeds will be donated on behalf of subscribers to the PSF, which has been mobilizing relief and response efforts for health workers, frontliners, hospitals, and poor communities affected by the pandemic

This is just one of the many ways Smart enables its customers to help those who are most affected by the pandemic with just a few taps on their smartphone.
