MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Since March 21, Lazada started rallying for Filipinos to help out in every way that they can through its digital giving platform, LazadaForGood, and has since raised a total of PHP 15 Million.
This comes after the hosting of Lazada’s second benefit concert #RadioGivesBack Charity Concert from Home on April 6.
Reflecting the Filipino spirit of Bayanihan, these donations go directly to LazadaForGood’s advocacy partners in the form of 13,578 personal protective equipment, 16,453 meals and food packs, as well as 1,821 hygiene supplies. This much needed aid goes towards supporting frontliners and providing relief to people affected by the virus in the country.
On top of the donations raised by partner organizations under LazadaForGood, Lazada will be donating PHP 5 Million to Caritas Manila, Kaya Natin Movement, and Philippine Red Cross as part of its commitment to give back to the Filipino community besides creating a platform where people can donate easily and securely.
Partner organizations under the LazadaForGood platform include UNICEF, Caritas Manila, Virlanie Foundation, Kaya Natin Movement, Philippine Red Cross, 2KK Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid, Project PEARLS, Tahanan ng Pagmamahal, World Vision, Save San Roque , Life Cycles PH, Spring Rain Global, UNHCR, Good Neighbors PHL, Habitat for Humanity Philippines, and McDo Kindness Kitchen whose aim is to help provide aid to health workers, daily wage earners, and the less fortunate.
Amping up the donation drive, Lazada has now enabled overseas donations, providing Filipinos living abroad or anyone with a foreign credit card a convenient and secured online payment method to assist the country in its fight against Covid-19.
