The season of giving is upon us, and despite the challenges of life, Filipinos— as some of the most generous people in the world— will always find a way to give back and share their blessings. Because of that, leading superapp Grab maximizes its parcel delivery service, GrabExpress, to make it easier and more affordable to give back to fellow Filipinos.
In an effort to help spread the holiday cheer and give a Paskumpletong Pasko to more Filipinos, Grab partnered with organizations SOS Children’s Villages, Tahanang Walang Hagdanan, Inc., and Caritas Manila for its initiative ’Paskumpleto Para Sa Lahat: Give Back Through GrabExpress’. Through this, the superapp aims to use its technology for good by giving discounts and rewards to consumers who use GrabExpress to send donations to the partner organizations.
Donating is made easy via GrabExpress by using the promo code PARASALAHAT to get a 25% OFF on your delivery fee. Customers can also choose to send their donations via the new GrabExpress service: Instant – Saver which lines up deliveries in batches of other parcels, giving the same convenience of a regular GrabExpress delivery, but at a cheaper price.
