IO, Jakarta – After organizing the Tiket.com Healthy Sharing donation movement in the first phase of March 28 to April 5, 2020, Tiket.com symbolically handed over 800 Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) units to medical personnel, the results of exchanging TIX Points for customers and CSR funds Tiket.com to the Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) team at ACT Menara 165 headquarters, East Cilandak, South Jakarta, on April 15, 2020. 

Continuing the spirit of sharing, Tiket.com implemented the second phase of the Healthy Ticket.com movement starting on April 15-22, 2020. In this second phase, Tiket. com invites customers to donate their TIX Points to be exchanged for various donations starting from IDR 10,000, IDR 20,000, IDR 50,000, IDR 100,000, IDR 200,000, and IDR 500,000. The results of this donation will be combined with Tiket.com’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds to purchase basic food needs for daily workers in the tourism sector affected by COVID-19. 

The second phase of TIX Point raising is focused on easing the burdens of the daily needs of the tourism sector workers such as station porters, pedicab drivers, small traders, local tour guides who are currently experiencing a decline, and even loss of income. With the adoption of the Large- Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) policy and a call to stay at home, this has increasingly impacted the tourism sector, especially day-to-day workers whose livelihoods depend on this industrial sector. 

“We will continue to invite our customers to spread the good by participating in the Tiket.com campaign. The second phase is devoted to day-to-day workers in the tourism sector. However, the daily workers in the tourism sector also contribute to advancing Indonesian tourism. We are sure that the small movements made by each customer will have a big impact if done together,” said Muhammad Anugraha Arisha, the Campaign Manager of Tiket.com. 

In this second phase, Tiket.com once again cooperated with social organization Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) in distributing food packages to daily workers in the tourism sector in several regions throughout Indonesia. ACT’s Strategic Partnership Director Mukti welcomes this synergy as a form of national cooperation in finding the best solution in awaiting the end of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

“The support from Tiket.com for APD assistance is very helpful for the medical team. Tiket.com is one of the corporations that care about humanitarian issues and problems. This collaboration with ACT aims to be able to help those who still need it. Hopefully, this will be a positive good that can be followed by other private sector firms in creating a greater impact,” said Mukti.
