Nigeria’s number 1 online classifieds site OLX, has given close to N2 million to charity in less than a year, raised by the OLX Gives Back initiative in partnership with Yaw, Mannie, Dan Foster and Olisa Adibua.
The radio personalities sold their personal items on OLX and proceeds from the sale of the items were donated to The Modupe Cole Foundation, The Down Syndrome Foundation, Bethesda Home for the Blind, the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy for early cancer testing and Pacelli School for the Blind.
Speaking at the event, the OLX country manager, Lola Masha said “We are the number one classified site in Nigeria and we recognize the importance of supporting our local communities“. She also added that “We partnered with them because we appreciate their commitment to supporting the youth through their work on radio.“
