Bikes for Livelihood started in 2021 with the support of MVP Group Chairman Manuel V Pangilinan, who provided 500 bicycles to Donate A Bike, Save A Job which aims to deploy bicycles to essential and frontline workers amid the pandemic. 

PSF has also been actively supporting the initiative and has since turned over bicycles to a number of local government units. “We believe in the extraordinary ways that we can help other people. Our Chairman MVP has inspired us to give back to communities and provide help to those most in need,” said PSF President Esther Santos.

“These bicycles are a sustainable way for us to provide help. When we ride our bicycles, it allows us to travel and commute safely going to and from work or school, or start our own livelihood like a small business of selling balut. We hope that this will go a long way for the people of La Union,” said Donate A Bike, Save A Job Founder Gretchen Ho.

It is our aim to uplift the lives of our fellow Filipinos who have lost their jobs amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Cathy Yang, PLDT and Smart First Vice President and Head of Corporate Communications.

“These ‘Joyful Bikes’ serve as a reminder for the people of La Union that there is hope amid life’s difficulties. We are grateful for the generosity of our partners as these bikes will greatly help our community and bring a sense of comfort into their lives,” said Joy Ortega, Sangguniang Panlalawigan of La Union Board Member.
