Zilingo, the leading fashion technology platform in association with Caritas Manila Foundation launched a fundraising campaign, ‘Love, Zilingo’ in an attempt to lend a helping hand to the healthcare workers and the disadvantaged greatly affected by the prolonged community quarantine owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a part of the initiative, citizens can come together to assist the Filipino community at large opting to donate Goody bags worth Php 700 and Php 2000 or choose from the donation vouchers valued at Php 50, Php 100, Php 500 and Php 1000 from www.zilingotrade.com or www.zilingoshopping.com.
Proceeds from ‘Love, Zilingo’ will be donated to Caritas Manila Foundation and utilized in buying necessary provisions like instant and ready-to-make food items, water, medicines, maternal and child healthcare supplies, rubbing alcohol and face masks among others. These items will be distributed to select municipalities in Metro Manila, like Quezon City, Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, San Juan, Taguig, and Valenzuela, to name a few.
“Despite the challenges of social distancing and limited resources during this difficult time, solidarity and the ability to work together coherently is of foremost importance now,” said Shiela Mauricio, Zilingo Head of Commercial. “And through this campaign, we are trying to utilize Zilingo’s e-commerce platform to the best of its ability to reach out and help our health workers and those who are in need,” she added.
The eDonation drive gives an opportunity to the people who are confined to their homes to contribute and provide assistance even in a small way for the welfare of the frontline workers who are battling the spread of the COVID-19 daily as well as to those deprived who are unable to sustain their families in this difficult period.
The e-commerce company has also dished out and posted words of encouragement on their Instagram account to boost the morale of fellow Filipinos.
“We believe that we can get through this crisis, through everyone’s generosity and kindness. Let us share the love in this critical moment and extend our care to fellow countrymen. Together #WeCanDoThis,” concluded Ryza Dipatuan, Zilingo Marketing Director.
