Ateneo Orgs Do Online Giving Through

06 Dec 2010 - 16:57 by RodCoronel in Announcement

There's a new way of sharing your blessings this Christmas season. An online "giving platform" called Pasagoods is now available at starting November 29, 2010. Pasagoods allows its users to select from a list of screened charity programs and make a contribution via credit card or Smart Money. Aside from this, other main features include sharing your donation activity on popular social networks, and tracking your donation through updates from the charity organization.

The principle behind Pasagoods is that giving is for everyone. Charity is not only for those who can donate thousands nor is it for those who have lots of time and energy to spare. Pasagoods emphasizes that small individual contributions can actually add up to address particular needs in our community. Pasagoods is the epitomy of Bayanihan 2.0 -- networked individuals making postive changes happen.

Pioneer projects on Pasagoods are projects of the Sector-Based Cluster organizations namely, Krismusmos of Musmos, Wishlist Program of Speed, Book Drive of Kaingin, and Christmas Party of Kythe-Ateneo. These projects by accredited organizations of Ateneo de Manila University are screened based on relevance and previous successes.

Pasagoods is brought to you by a group of innovators called Infini Technology Partners of the Ateneo Innovation Center, in cooperation with Smart Communications.
