SendwaveTHE Miss Universe pageant finals will be held in Israel this Sunday (Monday morning in Manila) and to cheer our representative, Bea Gomez, her batchmates in Miss Universe Philippines (MUP) all showed up at the zoom presscon of MUP announcing their partnership with Sendwave.

Those who greeted Bea and sent encouraging messages for her are MUP Tourism Katrina Dimaranan, MUP Charity Victoria Velasquez Vincent, first runner up Maureen Wroblewitz and second runner up Steffi Aberasturi. They say they’re all happy because Bea is making quite an impression in Israel. They all cheer her up, saying they root and pray for her to shine in the Miss Universe coronation night.

They add that they truly believe in her and they know she will do her utmost best to bring home the crown. They’re likewise happy that MUP has partnered with Sendwave as many of them have relatives here and abroad to whom they transmit or send money.

Sendwave is thrilled to announce their sponsorship of Miss Universe Philippines. Sendwave, which just expanded their service in the Philippines, chose to support the service-driven mission of this global pageant by helping Miss Universe Philippines, Bea Gomez, on her road to the crown.

“Filipinos are passionate about beauty pageants and love to show support for their contestants — no matter where they are in the world,” said Gazini Ganados, Miss Universe Philippines 2019 and Sendwave brand ambassador. “I’m proud to represent a company that truly cares about the community it serves.”

Sendwave entered the market at a time when many Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) were facing instability due to the pandemic. They saw a need in the Filipino community for a fee-free service with high exchange rates, and they worked quickly to provide that.

“The pandemic revealed a need to shift toward more digital options for sending money,” said Will Fogel, CEO of Sendwave. “We wanted to help address that for the Filipino community and provide them with a more affordable way to send funds to the people they care about.”

Using the app is simple and intuitive. Users can download Sendwave from the App Store or Google Play (look for the friendly little penguin). After entering their information at sign up, they can select the country they wish to send funds to. From there, users can add a new recipient, select the payout method, and enter the required information for the recipient. After entering the amount they wish to transfer, all they have to do is click the send button, confirm their transaction, and voila! The money is on its way.
