This holiday season MoneyGram launches two campaigns to recognize millions of Filipinos working overseas and their families back home as modern day heroes.
“We understand the challenges and emotional stress experienced by families that are set apart. We want to bring them together not only thanks to our reliable and convenient money transfers but also give them a chance to reunite for the holidays,” says Alex Chan Lim, country manager for the Philippines at MoneyGram.
In the spirit of “Welcome Home Kabayan” promotion, MoneyGram aims to bring home an Overseas Filipino Worker living in Japan to meet with family and friends in the Philippines. The promotion is open to all customers who send money with MoneyGram either in a SBI Remit location or online until December 31.
“MoneyGram Idol Awards” are designed to honor our modern day heroes with one-of-a-kind gathering to take place in May 2017.

“Philippines is one of the world’s largest remittance markets, according to the World Bank. In 2015 over $28 billion flowed into the country constituting for 9.6% of its’s GDP. At MoneyGram, we firmly believe that the money OFWs send back home provide not only for everyday needs of their families but also support them in achieving their dreams linked to education and investments,” added Lim.
