MANILA, Philippines, July 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MoneyGram, a global money transfer company, continues its legacy of connecting consumers to their loved ones with fast and reliable transaction by launching its new global campaign "MoneyGram – Bringing Our Customers Closer". The remittance company renewed also contract with multi-talented Filipino actor Robin Padilla acting as its global brand ambassador.
MoneyGram recognizes that modern-day Filipino heroes or "Heroes of the Sea" don't need to do great feats or wear capes to be called heroes. They battle bouts of loneliness and nostalgia each day as they are separated from their loved ones. At the same time they continuously strive to work hard to be able to provide a better life for their families back in the Philippines. This is already a legitimate reason to salute and celebrate them.
"For more than 70 years, MoneyGram has been helping people around the world and their families to stay connected across borders and boundaries, oceans and countries. It is our honor to be able to assist and support our Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) in sending money to their loved ones and becoming their bridge to a better life," says Yogesh Sangle, senior regional director of MoneyGram for Asia & Pacific.
MoneyGram offers global network of approximately 350,000 locations in 200 countries and territories worldwide and more than 12,000 locations across the Philippines. This allows Filipinos to send cash from anywhere in the world.
Receivers can conveniently claim their remittances in the Philippines through trusted partner locations. Additionally, OFW family members can now send their remittances directly to loved ones' bank accounts at any of the participating 20 banks in the Philippines through MoneyGram's cash-to-account service.
Each family member plays an active and vital role in pulling the family closer together in the absence of one or both OFW's parents. The amount of emotional devotion that is required from them is something that both MoneyGram and Robin Padilla admire.
"I am delighted to be a part of MoneyGram once more because I believe in what they stand for. OFWs are there for their family and friends to assist them with every live situation," shares Padilla.
"MoneyGram's priority is to connect our consumers with their loved ones by providing convenient and reliable financial connection for life's essentials and daily needs. We allow them to be as close as possible by providing support and financial needs for their children," adds Sangle.
