Leading digital money transfer service WorldRemit (http://bit.ly/Philmrate) celebrates the work and achievements of unspoken heroes in communities around the world, and the Blacktown Ponds Lions Club is just one group of many working hard to better the lives of others across Australia and the world.
The Blacktown Ponds’ Christmas in July dinner is one of their highly anticipated annual events, and this year the proceeds will support the upgrade of The Healing Garden in the Blacktown Mt Druitt Hospital Children’s Ward.
“Upgrading the garden would encourage the children and their families to interact with nature through the use of outdoor aids and it would also encourage peer support and interaction with other families, allowing for shared experiences and reducing feelings of isolation,” Rissa said.
The Christmas in July dinner was fully booked around two months prior to the date of the event, and Rissa said the local community is always wanting to get involved because they want to support the Blacktown Ponds in their mission to help others.
“When we transfer money with WorldRemit ((http://bit.ly/Philmrate) we actually post the transactional documentation on our Facebook and on our website so people can see exactly where all their money went,” Rissa said.
In the past, the Lions Club helped raise money to provide upgraded playground equipment for the local special school and they also raised around $20,000 to assist in the rebuilding of three schools in Caritas in the Philippines, following the Typhoon Haiyan disaster in 2013.
“We are very happy to be dealing with WorldRemit (http://bit.ly/Philmrate) because we really need a really good and reliable remittance service, especially when we raise big amounts of money,” Rissa explained.
Partnered with local Philippine businesses from Aparri to Jolo, WorldRemit (http://bit.ly/Philmrate) ensures receivers can instantly pick up cash remittances without having to travel so far or worry about an internet connection.
By connecting with leading names such as M Lhuillier, Cebuana Lhuillier, BDO, Metrobank and Palawan Pawnshops, WorldRemit (http://bit.ly/Philmrate) has created more ways for organisations such as the Blacktown Ponds to continue to support charities without concern.
“I have struggled previously with sending money back home with other companies where the money has been taken out of my account but my family still had not received anything, despite two months having already transpired
since the initial transaction,” Rissa said.
“But, with WorldRemit (http://bit.ly/Philmrate) we feel a great sense of security knowing we are in good hands.”
