 “As Christmas is the most important time of the year for Filipinos, we take this opportunity to make a memorable homecoming for Overseas Filipinos.  It is not every year that they get a chance to celebrate Christmas the Filipino way, and through Pamaskong Handog, we make this happen.  The day is full of entertainment, fun, humor, and prizes.  They just have to enjoy the day, while we make it special for them,” said Joaquin San Agustin, SVP for Marketing of SM Supermalls

"Through the years, Pamaskong Handog has become our commitment to our kababayans as a way of giving back and thanking them for their hard work and sacrifice. It is our major event that we look forward to every year because it is our chance to make Overseas Filipinos feel honored and appreciated. It is a day of recognition, gratitude and honor, especially dedicated to our kababayans. Pamaskong Handog is also in line with all the other efforts of the bank for the Overseas Filipino market – from the easy opening of BDO Kabayan Savings, its long term benefits such as free life and accident insurance – to being present at Overseas Filipino events in order to reach out to them to our kababayans and communicate that BDO is their bank whether they’re here or abroad,” said Genie Gloria, senior vice president and head of BDO Remittance.

To be able to watch and join the fun at the Pamaskong Handog event, Overseas Filipinos and beneficiaries just need to present their BDO Kabayan Savings ATM card or passbook or SM Global Pinoy card. They are also entitled to bring one (1) companion to the event.
