AFTER revealing that its much-awaited AIRism face masks will finally go on sale in the Philippines, Uniqlo revealed that it will also be donating 500,000 pieces to frontliners.
“As the fight against COVID-19 goes on, we are committed to continue support and help Filipinos, most especially those who are severely affected by this plight,” it said in a statement posted on social media.
“To help the frontliners, who have been working hard to save our fellow countrymen, and the communities highly affected by the pandemic, Uniqlo has pledged to provide support by giving 500,000 pieces of AIRism masks,” the statement continued.
AIRism masks are made with Uniqlo’s signature fabric.
This charitable effort echoes the Japanese company’s global initiative last April, where its parent firm Fast Retailing pledged to donate 10 million masks worldwide at the height of the pandemic.
As recently as July, Uniqlo teamed up with the SM Foundation to donate 79,000 face masks to 30 Philippine hospitals.
