Shopee’s New Initiative “Barangay Shopee” Aims To Better The Lives Of Underserved Communities
With its mission of bettering the lives of Filipinos across the country through technology, Shopee has helped millions of local buyers and sellers adopt e-commerce seamlessly through its meaningful campaigns and initiatives. In time for its much-awaited double day sale, the 9.9 Super Shopping Day, Shopee launches Barangay Shopee, the newest initiative under its Shopee Bayanihan CSR program, designed to help communities in need by enabling Filipinos to win a sponsored community project for their barangay.
Through this contest, Shopee users from all over the Philippines have the chance to win a community project that will help address the needs of their barangay. Winners of the contest can choose their own community project that all members of their barangay can benefit from, such as a new basketball court, multi-purpose hall renovation, public school supplies, and other community-building projects.
Starting August 25 up to September 9, users can join Barangay Shopee by posting video entries on Facebook and submitting the link via the Barangay Shopee page in the app. Joining the online contest can be done in three simple steps:
- Create a 1-2 minute video with at least 3 barangay members and answer the questions:
- Bakit kayo ang dapat tawagin na “Barangay Shopee”?
- Paano pwedeng tulungan ng Shopee ang inyong Barangay?
- Post the video on Facebook, following these requirements:
- Follow and tag @ShopeePH on Facebook
- Post is public
- Use the hashtag #BarangayShopee in the caption
- Submit the link to your video via the Barangay Shopee page in the Shopee app.
Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines, shared “We are thrilled to be launching our newest initiative, Barangay Shopee. In everything that we do, we work towards our main mission of bettering the lives of our users, sellers, and communities through technology. Through Barangay Shopee, our goal is to foster the community spirit of barangays from all over the Philippines, and uplift them by providing them with a community project that their whole barangay can benefit from. We look forward to crafting even more initiatives that will help make e-commerce more accessible for all.”
Barangay Shopee is the newest initiative under Shopee Bayanihan, the company’s umbrella CSR program that seeks to harness the power of technology to help communities benefit from digital transformation, wherever they are in the Philippines.
