"OLX Gives Back' Raises N746,000 for Pacelli School

‘OLX Gives Back’ initiative in partnership with Dan Foster and Olisa Adibua makes charitable donation of N746,000 to Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted.

The two personalities sold items on OLX and proceeds from the sale of the item were donated to Pacelli School for the blind.

Speaking at the event, Lola Masha, OLX country manager, said “We are the number one classified site in Nigeria and we recognize the importance of supporting our local communities. Masha also added that we partnered with Olisa and Dan because we appreciate their commitment to supporting the youth through their work on radio.

Radio personality Dan Foster stated that he joined the OLX Gives Back Campaign because it is important for Nigerians to know that items that are no longer needed at home can be traded for cash and used for a good cause. “With OLX, everyone's a winner”, said Olisa Adibua “I was able to sell my TV and washing machine to folks who bought them on OLX at a very good deal and I get to support Pacelli where visually impaired children go to school for free”.

Sister Jane Onyeneri, Matron/Teacher, Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted while expressing her gratitude towards OLX and the radio personalities for their generous donation said, “we rely on generous donations like these to keep the school going and we are very grateful to OLX for this initiative”.

The OLX Gives Back Campaign began in 2014, with fellow on-air personalities Manny, of Cool FM & Wazobia FM’s Yaw donating to the Modupe Cole Foundation, The Down Syndrome Foundation, Bethesda Home for the Blind and the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy for early cancer testing.
