OLX, PPCRV partner to promote responsible voting

OLX - PPCRV

As part of its commitment to promote responsible voting among Filipinos, OLX partnered with the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV), the citizen arm that helps monitor the country’s elections.

The partnership was forged by the shared vision of OLX and PPCRV of a free, fair, and fraud-free elections in the Philippines.

Donations

OLX donated cash and merchandise to support volunteers working numerous shifts at the PPCRV Command Center in Paco, Manila. OLX’s donation helped run the PPCRV Command Center, which hosted hundreds of volunteers, some as young as eight years old, who all hope to make a difference in the Philippines.

“We are glad to have found like-minded partners who share the mission of helping Filipinos understand the importance and impact of an individual vote. OLX’s ‘Ibenta mo na ang gamit mo, ‘wag lang boto mo’ campaign resonated well with the thousands of volunteers throughout the country working on educating voters against vote buying and vote selling,” said Ana De Villa Singson, PPCRV national communications and media director.

Win Together Fist Bump

Voter education campaign

Last April, OLX empowered Filipinos with their voter education campaign “Ibenta mo na ang gamit mo, ‘wag lang boto mo” to encourage voting responsibly. Its aim was to cultivate an informed and responsible electorate for the 2016 national elections for May 9. This campaign educated Filipinos on the value of voting and encouraged them to take part in spreading this message through online content and on-ground initiatives.

“As enablers of win-win exchanges that improve the lives of Filipinos, we at OLX feel a responsibility for helping remind Filipinos about the importance of understanding the impact of each individual in shaping the nation. Like PPCRV, OLX believes that only through an informed, responsible electorate can we achieve true democracy and win together as a nation,” said Jean Magboo, Brand Marketing Manager of OLX.
