Yours truly together with party folks gather and danced in an effort to provide relief for the victims of Supertyphoon “Yolanda”.
With three of the country’s biggest EDM event producers – Republiq, Worldwide Womb and Driven, they have teamed up with Viber to present UNITED REPUBLIQ: An Electronic Music Assembly For A Cause with all proceeds from the music festival to be donated to the typhoon victims.
I was a little bit late during the event but I am stiill lucky to see how DJ Axwell spin the party all night. Late but still spotted some celebrities like Daniel Matsunaga and Fabio Ide.
Three world-renowned DJs Axwell, Nicky Romero and Dutch duo NO_ID along with a few of Manila’s favorites Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Martin Pulgar and Marc Naval waved their talent fees for the beneficiary of this event.
An estimated P7,000,000 was raised including other efforts related to this project.
It is heartwarming to know that party lovers are also taking part on gathering money to help typhoon victims.
At the end of the show Viber CEO Talmon Marco leaves a simple message to all: “The Filipino spirit is strongest when we are one; as a united country”

Viber's other efforts:
On top of this initiative is its Viber Out, a new service that allows Viber users to make free calls to Globe mobile subscribers in the Philippines. The service was borne out of the pressing need to address the breakdown of communication services in the typhoon-stricken areas in the Visayas.
With the support of Globe Telecom, Viber was able to come up with a timely solution that should bridge the communication gap and allow affected families to get in touch with their relatives to and from the calamity zones.
In addition, Viber has also launched its “Sagip Tawag” relief communication centers in partnership with Ayala Malls. Strategically located all throughout the 14 Ayala Malls nationwide, these public service booths will be equipped with mobile phones and laptops which will give public access for free international and local calls.
