Malaking porsyento ng Filipino Families ay may kamag-anak or kakilala na nasa abroad para mag hanap-buhay.
Sa aming pamilya, may mga tito at tita kaming nasa abroad din. Kaya nakakatuwa nung nalaman ko na may MoneyGram Idol Awards pala na para sa mga OFW.
Last June 19, I was privileged to be invited as of one guests during a ceremony at Solaire Resort. The second annual MoneyGram Idol Awards honoured twelve OFW families and their relatives who work tirelessly in other countries to send money back home.
All of their stories are inspiring and really heart-warming. Hindi ko napigilan mapaluha habang nanonood sakanila.
The twelve main prize winners received P30,000 Philippine pesos in cash, and an all-expense-paid trip to Manila where they will spend three days with their loved ones at a luxury resort. In addition, 30 winners also won Php 5,000 in cash.
The awards were handed over during the celebration attended by MoneyGram’s key regional leaders and Filipino star and MoneyGram’s brand ambassador, Robin Padilla.
“We are here for the OFWs not only to enable them to send money to their families back home in a convenient and fast manner but we also want to bring them closer to their relatives. We established the MoneyGram Idol Awards to recognize the everyday struggles of families of 12 million Filipinos living and working abroad” said Yogesh Sangle, MoneyGram’s head of Asia Pacific, Middle East and South Asia who handed over awards at the gala ceremony.
I am amazed on how this company helps our kababayan not only through company’s service but also in recognizing our hardworking OFWs.
