Smart's PayITfwd: A chance to give social good a boost

I know of doctors and medical student groups who find time to do social good in various ways. Some do free clinics. I know of one doctor who is passionate about educating people about organic farming. On the other hand, some of my students volunteer for a known advocacy group helping build houses.

Technology can actually bolster social good efforts to help bring more benefits to communities. For these individuals or groups including school organizations (excluding those foundations or companies with CSR programs) which have projects for social good, grab this opportunity to give your project a technological boost.

Smart Communications has this #PayITfwd initiative, a contest shall I say, which you might want to consider. Winners will be given a technology package consisting of:

  • 1 Smart Bro Pocket Wifi
  • 5 tablets
  • Smart Bro load worth P 3,000
  • Cash prize of P 50,000
All you have to do is make a 3-minute video describing you and your project, its mission, the impact of your project on your community, how you envision it in the future and how technology could help you attain your goals regarding this project.

The competition will have 2 rounds before the final winners are selected.
