Grab Gifts Riders with Surprise Delivery on Labor Day

Warning: Get your tissues ready!

Imagine working 24/7, under the scorching heat of the sun and through the coldness of the night just to provide for your family and add to that the dangers of being on the road and of course, the pandemic. Ang hirap! BUT STILL, Grab’s Ate and Kuya Riders continue to work tirelessly to ensure that our essentials are brought to us in the comfort of our homes.

We are one of the families who rely on Grab for deliveries. There are times when we can’t really go out for groceries and Grab’s Kuya Riders do it for us. I’d usually give a 5% tip and walang palya kahit barya they always say thank you for it.

That’s why this heartwarming video of Grab giving back to the Kuya Riders made me shed a tear or two! Kainis kayo! 😅

It was a typical day for the 3 Kuya Riders, working on their deliveries and upon arriving at the drop-off point, they see a huge green box with their name on it. Puzzled, they started calling the contact person of the booked delivery. And SURPRISE! A Grab representive tells them that the green box is theirs and they can take it home to their family.

Surprise!

Then one by one they started crying. Hay nako Grab, I started crying too! The feeling that after all their hard work, they are now being recognized and thanked for. They were really thankful of the big surprise for them and their family.

The part where I also started crying. Kuya naman eh! 🤣
Box full of surprise! Now how did the Kuya Riders brought everything home? 😅

“Umulan man o umaraw, sisiguruhin po namin na safe po yung ipinapadala ninyo sa amin.”, said one of the surprised Kuya Riders so that made me cry again! 😅

We can also help them in our own little way! Aside from the generous tip you are giving them, Grab has launched Groceries For Your Rider, and upcoming feature on GrabMart where you can purchase groceries from participating GrabMart stores for your designated Ate and Kuya Riders. It’s not just Ate and Kuya Rider we are helping here but their family as well.

Groceries For Your Rider feature now on GrabMart
Groceries For Your Rider is made possible with the support of Robinsons Supermarket, Nestlé, Unilever, Eden, Bioflu and Pepsico

If this didn’t tug your heartstrings, I don’t know what will guys! Have you seen the video? Comment down below!
