WorldRemit, the international payments company is celebrating Diwali by giving away 100 tablets to recipients in India! Also known as the festival of lights, Diwali symbolises the triumph of good over evil and is celebrated by the Hindu, Jain and Sikh communities.
Falling in the month of Kartika, celebrations last for 5 days whereby prayers are offered in temples, families exchange gifts and decorate their homes with candles and lanterns. WorldRemit wants to spread the love with this generous offer.
Customers in Australia and New Zealand will have the chance to win a tablet for their chosen recipient by simply making a transfer of at least $10 (in local AUD or NZD currency) to India using the WorldRemit app or website between 23rd October and 31st December 2020 and ensuring that they have registered for the offer online at: https://www.worldremit.com/en/promotions/india-win-a-tablet Terms and Conditions apply. Every week, WorldRemit will randomly select winners. A tablet will then be sent to the winners’ chosen recipient in India.
Ruzan Ahamed, Country Director of South Asia at WorldRemit, said, “We recognise the importance of education in creating opportunities for people to fulfil their potential, and we know that funding education is one of the main reasons why our customers send money back home.”
“Like most places in the world, the education system in India has further embraced digital technology as a result of the global pandemic.”
“As COVID-19 has impacted many families and their finances, we want to ensure that more people can access learning resources online. This offer of an educational gift is our way of wishing our customers a happy Diwali and helping them to support their families and friends back home”, Ahamed said.
Diwali is certainly a time of celebration and togetherness. In response to a recent survey conducted on WorldRemit customers in Australia revealed the following:
- 37% of respondents typically travel abroad to see family and friends during Diwali though this will now not be possible for the majority due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions.
- 41% of respondents said they usually send money to family and friends back home during Diwali.
