I have been a customer of RemitHome for many years now. When I first moved here to live full time, they were our money ‘life line’ who kept us afloat during the time it took to getting our bank accounts set up here and ‘aging’ deposits until there was enough “in the bank” here to take care of day-to-day living as well as emergencies.
Many in my family use them regularly as well. In short, I trust them, they have always been responsive, secure, scrupulously honest, and unlike some of the more popular “name brand” services, they are fully licensed and legal in all 50 US states.
What they are offering here is essentially a twofer. If you make a donation direct to the bank of the Philippine Red Cross they will also give you a free transfer, to be used when you wish, to someone else, like a family member here in the Philippines.
Sounds like a good deal to me. I high recommend this company, disaster or no disaster, and for those who need to know, I have no commercial connection and this is not an affiliate or commercial link. It’s just a way to give to people who are needy in ways most of us rich Americans can’t begin to believe.
By the way … the International Red Cross, governing authority of the Philippine Red Cross is a real non-profit, unlike some who pop up from time to time in disasters, and I can’t say enough for the Philippine Red Cross. It is headed by a true Philippine Hero, Senator Dick Gordon, (yes he is Filipino), a man whom I could do several blog posts about … he gets things done for the country and he isn’t getting rich along the way …. I can highly recommend the Philippine Red cross as well … they were on the job Saturday virtually from the first rainfall, along with the Armed Forces of the Philippines and support from US Forces … amazing how much faster disaster relief is without politicians in blue shirts like FEMA.
