Sending money to loved ones in the Philippines is a long-standing tradition for OFW's around the world. Back in the days you send using mostly bank transfers and Western Unions that you have to go to a physical location to get it done.

Here in the US, we have some options to choose from, two of the options I usually use is Remitly and recently I stumble upon Cebuana Quikz. Here is a brief video comparing both services, enjoy!
