AirAsia collaborated with social enterprise Sunny Sonny Story to bring hope and illumination to communities in need, an initiative they launched along with the airline’s holiday catalogue.
Keeping in mind about the need for a renewable and reliable light source particularly in remote areas and in impoverished communities, AirAsia and Sunny Sonny Story came up with a meaningful gift that would last its receivers way beyond the holidays.
The Sunny Sonny Story Lantern is now available on all Philippines AirAsia flights for only P650 with 10% of the total sales to be donated to impoverished communities affected by typhoons or natural calamities. You can also buy one lantern and donate another to a community in need for P1,050.
Aside from this unique item, AirAsia also offers a variety of vacation essentials featured in their holiday catalogue. AirAsia’s in-flight merchandise includes items from Sunnies sunglasses, Human Nature personal care products, and, of course, Air Asia’s own brand of merchandise ranging from stationery to toys and gift sets.
About Sunny Sonny Story Lantern
The Sunny Sonny Story Lantern is an inflatable, solar-powered lantern that can provide light for up to 8 hours. It was inspired by and named after a young boy who survived typhoon Haiyan three years ago. The lantern is also waterproof, making it a dependable and renewable source of light. And since it is inflatable, it also floats on water and is portable. The Sunny Sonny Story Lantern is a safer alternative to candles and kerosene lamps, so it’s ideal for outdoor use, for use during power outages and during travel emergencies.
