Mineski, PBA stars intensify donation campaign for medical frontliners
MANILA, Philippines—ESports company Mineski Global ramped up its charity drive to the medical frontliners battling the COVID-19 pandemic in Metro Manila.
After launching Lockdown Games on March 24, Mineski Global amassed P460,000 from participating players, ESports partners, and viewers who watched at MineskiTV’s Facebook channel.
Mineski Global’s goal is to collect P1 million in donations that will then be given to the Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation.
“We are thankful for the generosity and kindness of the esports community to the Philippine General Hospital. Your donation will go a long way in empowering our frontliners against COVID-19,” said Dr. Jonas Del Rosario, spokesperson and public affairs coordinator of PGH.
Helping Mineski Global in its goal are PBA stars and avid gamers June Mar Fajardo, Marc Pingris, Japeth Aguilar, and Kiefer Ravena with the foursome set to play in a DoTA 2 showmatch on April 6.
Those who’ve already helped the ESports company in its campaign are Mountain Dew, Enervon Activ, Tostas, ASUS Republic of Gamers, and Good Game Digital.
“I am humbly calling our entire community, especially those who will take part in the Lockdown Games and our partners, to lend us their hand in what we think is the bigger battle: that of providing immediate help to our friends in the health sector who are manning the frontlines against this pandemic through your donations,” said Ronald Robins, Mineski Global CEO and founder.
Those who are interested in donating may send an email pledge sent to [email protected], via text at 09272798615, or through Mineski Global’s GCash, via 09178747768.
