Radio personality Dan Foster stated that he joined the OLX Gives Back Campaign because it is important for Nigerians to know that items that are no longer needed at home can be traded for cash and used for a good cause.

“With OLX, everyone's a winner, I was able to sell my TV and washing machine to folks who bought them on OLX at a very good deal and I get to support Pacelli where visually impaired children go to school for free,” said Olisa Adibua.

Expressing her gratitude towards OLX and the radio personalities for their generous donation, the principal Pacelli School for the Blind, Sister Jane Onyeneri said “we rely on generous donations like this to keep the school going and we are very grateful to OLX for this initiative.”

The OLX Gives Back Campaign began in 2014, with fellow on-air personalities Manny, of Cool FM & Wazobia FM’s Yaw donating to the Modupe Cole Foundation, The Down Syndrome Foundation, Bethesda Home for the Blind and the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy for early cancer testing.

OLX is the world’s leading classifieds platform in growth markets and is available in more than 40 countries and over 50 languages.
