Share the Love this Holiday Season with Carousell #Preloved Campaign

Manila, Philippines - Carousell, one of the world's largest and fastest growing classifieds marketplaces, today launched #PrelovedWithLove, a charitable movement which aims to encourage the act of gifting and giving in a meaningful way. The campaign was developed in collaboration with non-profit organization, Hands On Manila.

The proceeds will go to the ongoing social entrepreneurship program we are running in Mandaluyong Addition Hills Elementary School." said Emmanuel Bienvenido Marquez, Executive Director, Hands on Manila 

"On top of raising funds for our beneficiary, we hope this can kick-start a movement where our community can give away items they no longer need. With more than 11 million listings on our marketplace, Carousell is the platform to connect like-minded individuals to buy, sell, and also give away their items this Christmas," said Marita Galvez, Marketing Executive, Carousell Philippines. 

To inspire the community during this season of giving, Carousell has teamed up with local celebrities and personalities such Laureen Uy, Martine Cajucom, Angel Dei Peralta and more.
