LINE, the world’s leading mobile platform with 330-million users, has donated funds raised by its “Pray for the Philippines” special-edition sticker set to victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda.
Mr Morikawa was given updates about ongoing relief operations in the country. And with the assistance of the Japanese Red Cross, the donations were transferred to the Philippine Red Cross last January 10, 2013.
“We are grateful for our donors from around the world for making this generous contribution possible,” said Greg Kim, Senior Manager at LINE Plus Corporation. “LINE has been in the Philippines for two years now, and our relationship with the country and its people will be strong through thick and thin."
LINE offers free text and voice messaging, voice calling and group chat with up to 100 people. It integrates various interactive elements such as Stickers, Home & Timeline and Official Accounts in its mobile messaging platform. This cross-platform mobile messenger has been releasing a series of add-on apps that range from games to an anti-virus app since its release in June 2011.
Today, LINE has become a hot cultural icon with 330 million users in 230 countries. LINE has also held the coveted No. 1 spot in the 'free apps' category of app stores in 60 countries.
