Smart PayITFwd

"If you have something good to share, then share it." This is an excerpt of an adage by Rey Bufi of The Storytelling Project (TSP). This adage perfectly elaborates what PayITFwd is.

PayITFwd is a new social development initiative of Smart Communications that aims to to enable the spread of social good acts using technology. With payITfwd, social good advocates can scale up and even encourage the public to support their cause.

Through this initiative, Smart is looking for individuals of groups that are already doing communicty-based projects that contribute to learning or expansion of knowledge in various fields such as eucation, environment, disaster preparedness, health, livelihood and sports.

Entries must be submitted in video format showing an overview of the project, its impact to the recipient community, and how technology can enable the project or further spread its benefits.

Smart will be selecting the best 20 entries in a two-round selection process that will run from May 21, up to July 31, and August 16 to October 31 this year. Entries will be judged based on the impact of the project in the community, its novelty and proposed use of technology. Voting the best entries via social media will also have bearning on the final score of the entries.

Each of the selected social good advocates, 10 for each round, will recieve a technology package comprising five tablets, 1 Smart Bro Pocket Wi-Fi , Smart Bro load worth P3,000.00, and a cash of P50.000.00.
