• Uplifting ways on helping out communities

      Year 2020 truly has been a year of ceaseless challenges, foodpanda, the on-demand food delivery service, embraced the opportunity to make a difference by delivering much-needed help to those in need. Its fleet of golden-hearted riders answered calls for help and led the charge in assisting people through various efforts all year round, from serving those affected by natural disasters to supporting medical frontliners in the COVID-19 pandemic.

      “Through thick and thin, foodpanda takes care of its community of customers, riders, and vendors with its core business and Corporate Social Advocacy programs. We desire to help underserved populations and move toward economic empowerment and inclusion through equal access to every possible opportunity,” said Daniel Marogy, foodpanda Philippines’ managing director.


      When Taal Volcano erupted early in the year, for example, foodpanda riders in the area were quick to respond and scrapped their schedules that day to bring immediate help to affected families. The company also mobilized relief efforts for the victims of the series of typhoons in recent months, providing relief packages to affected communities all over the country.

      Moreover, foodpanda rolled out several initiatives to support medical workers nationwide who were manning the front lines against COVID-19. In April, the company partnered with restaurants in Baguio, Cebu, and Cagayan de Oro to deliver warm meals and refreshments to healthcare workers in hospitals and checkpoints. The following month, foodpanda joined hands with The Philippine Army to provide food assistance to COVID-19 response teams and frontline workers such as street sweepers, garbage collectors, waste management teams, and local government unit personnel in Quezon City, Mandaluyong City, and Taguig City.

      The company also introduced the PandaTODA project to welcome tricycle drivers, whose livelihood was severely affected by the pandemic, into the foodpanda family as delivery riders. Tricycle drivers under the program were given the option to work on their own hours or be part of the foodpanda full-time. With the support of local government units like Manila, Pasig, and Quezon City, displaced drivers were able to find a sustainable source of income during this time of crisis.

      “foodpanda raised the bar by reaching out and extending help to everyone, especially to those in need,” Marogy said. “Our goal with these initiatives goes beyond providing immediate relief. We hope to leave a lasting and inspirational impact on communities all over the country.”

      Despite having achieved much this year, foodpanda recognizes that more can always be done in terms of helping people and building stronger communities. The company remains committed to improve its efforts to deliver the promise of embracing a local responsibility and a unique opportunity to be a force of good.

        What you should know when buying a memorial lot as an investment?

        The traditional investor would usually invest in a real estate investment like a residential property. Or in other real estate property, he could focus on when he retires. After all, real estate investments provide passive income. But there’s an asset that can also help stabilize your finances aside from the ones you’re familiar with. Memorial lots. This article will walk you through what you need to know when buying a memorial lot as an investment.

        Things to consider when buying a memorial lot as an investment
        Death is a deeply emotional topic that most family members feel uncomfortable talking about. The thought of losing someone prevents people from confronting this harsh reality of life. That the idea of investing in a memorial lot sounds taboo.

        From an investor’s point of view, buying a memorial lot early allows the property to grow its price and appreciation value.
        A memorial lot is a good investment because it requires low capitalization, and yet it has a high appreciation rate.
        You’ll be guaranteed perpetual ownership once you have the amount of the memorial lot fully paid. It’s yours unless you choose to sell it for a higher price, or transfer ownership to someone else.
