When’s the last time you did something kind for a friend? Will you join the #PayMayaItForward movement?

Spread love and kindness this Holiday Season! Will you join the #PayMayaItForward movement?

Often, it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of holiday shopping madness—what with all the discounts and special edition releases happening here and there. And while it’s true that it’s rewarding to splurge your hard-earned bucks to buy things you deserve for all your hard work, let’s not forget that this season is also the perfect time to give back to our friends and family, as well as people who touched our lives no matter how small their actions may be.

PayMaya recently launched #PayMayaItForward, a social movement initiative that aims to inspire Filipinos to “pay it forward” this holiday season by doing random acts of kindness.

After reading about #PayMayaItForward movement, I never had second thoughts of joining the cause in my own little way.

While waiting for my flight at Cebu Airport, I decided to use my PayMaya cashbacks to buy several packs of dried mangoes. After all, this is the best pasalubong from Cebu apart from Lechon and Otap.

As a way of giving back, I decided to send these dried mangoes to selected Out of Town Blog contributors who are also instrumental in the blog’s growing readership. I also bought extra packs of dried mangoes to surprise a friend who will visit the country for the holiday season.

On my way to meet my friends, I had an interesting conversation with my Grab Car driver about how the driving business fares for him lately, and how different Christmas today is from years back. It was a pleasant way to connect to someone, and since I have an extra pack of dried mango, I also gave one to him.

PayMaya encourages its users to take concrete steps to “PayMaya It Forward” in their own little ways. It can be as simple as doing an act of kindness this holiday season–it can be by buying coffee for a stranger, helping out a person carry his shopping bags, cooking for your family or simply sharing treats to your Grab Car driver.

PayMaya realizes how incredibly impactful these small gestures are, and saw this as an opportunity to encourage its users to join in on the spirit of giving, as well as to give back to the community by supporting the next generation of agri-entrepreneurs enrolled at the School for Experiential and Entrepreneurial Development (SEED Philippines), through “PayMaya It Forward.”

PayMaya Philippines’ own act of kindness is to match the amount of cashback given to its users in the ongoing 1-10-100 QR promo from December 16-31, 2019. Funds from this event will be donated to SEED Philippines, which was also the company’s chosen beneficiary last year.

You’ll receive an SMS confirmation each time a cashback is matched, for donation to Gawad Kalinga-SEED. By simply paying via PayMaya QR, not only do you get cashback, you’re also able to help donate funds to SEED, in your own little way.

SEED Philippines under Gawad Kalinga provides an education-based solution to rural development. It is the first school for social entrepreneurship for the poor which serves as a model for rural development through education and hands-on learning mentored by an international team of social entrepreneurs and innovators. SEED prepares students to create social enterprises that will develop rural areas through rural jobs and wealth creation. It serves as a pilot that will be replicated to provide quality education to thousands of kids in various communities across the Philippines.
