#GavaGives: A Convenient Online Platform for Kindhearted Campaign Makers

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Giving, in its sincerest form, not only brightens up the lives of people (from a simple smile to the loudest laughter), especially the needy, but also our own hearts knowing we, in our own little way, are able to remember and give hope especially when most needed.

It is touching and heartwarming to reach out and give." 

Those words were what I conceived when asked why giving was important. This question was raised during the media event for Gava - an online donor community, that's likely to be a big hit for those who wish to extend their generosity towards an advocacy or outreach that they could easily initiate suing the platform that Gava offers. 

Gava aims to help out the needy in many kinds, shapes and forms, whether it's for a community located at far-flung areas unreachable by vehicles, or just for your neighbor who's having problems in financing his much required medical operation to prolong his life.

The organization is composed of passionate and highly technical professionals exposed in various charity foundations, marketplace and donation processing systems, and is led by Anna Cuisia Lindayag, the CEO and founder.

In August 2016, Gava was piloted as a crowdfunding platform that puts fun and purpose into the act of giving.

With the hashtag #GavaGives, Gava aims to be a lifestyle, most probably to also get the attention of Millennials who has embraced the digital age as their lifestyle.

Gava Marketing Staff Ria Rabajante hosted the media event, and facilitated the interview with some Gava campaign makers, like Kythe Foundation's Ivy Sausto and Noel Soriano, who both provided some testimonies on how they used Gava for their campaigns.

Gava ambassadors include Interior Designer Carla Peña, GMA Actress Marlann Flores, and Bb. Pilipinas - International 2014 Bianca Guidotti.

PAGCOR Assistant Vice-President Jimmy Bondoc is also a Celebrity Ambassador but had to go ealier before the main program started.

Bloomberg PH Host and Library Renewal Partnership Head Quintin Pastrana and Gava CEO Ann Lindayag also signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on Library Renewal Partnership which aims to build 200 libraries all over the country by 2020.

We have exclusive video interviews with the some of the mentioned parties, including the Gava founder herself. Please check them out at our official social media pages like Facebook at

Suy Galvez, The Voice Season 2 Finalist, serenaded the crowd with two songs numbers at the beginning of the event while everyone was having lunch at Chef and Brewer restaurant located at Circulo Verde, Calle Industria in Quezon City.

Below is the official press release from the media event:

In this screen age where people across all generations are completely mobile and social, Gava, envisions to make generosity a lifestyle among netizens.

Developed by Gava Tech Pte Ltd, Gava, which everyone can visit thru URL,, enables users to easily create crowd-funding campaigns for various personal events and social causes and to promote these campaigns through social media. Its simple and elegant interface allows users smooth navigation, and the availability of several payment options — both online and offline — makes it easier for contributors to support the campaigns that they want.

With its partnerships with a thriving number of organizations like World Vision, Operation Blessing, Save the Children, WWF, CARA, Haribon Foundation, Children’s Hour and Make Your Nanay Proud Foundation, Gava aims to help the people who want to donate to charities but do not know where or how to start.

On its short run, Gava has raised millions of donations already from various campaigns including its most successful ongoing campaign by far, the University of Santo Thomas College of Science’ “Project AGham” which aims to advance the academic and research capability of the College. The project raised an amount of $52,606 or 2.6 million pesos to date. 

Gava’s vision is to be top of mind when it comes to gifting, celebration of life and helping more people help more people.
