Western Union Rewards Customers For Sending Money Home

The Arab American News, Posted: Dec 30, 2009

DEARBORN, Mich. Leading international money transfer company, Western Union, has rewarded its customers in the United States for sending remittances to their home countries, reports The Arab American News. The report references the companys recent "Fly Home" sweepstakes promotion that began during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, in late August, primarily targeting customers who send money to the Muslim world.

Amin Nadi, who owns a cell phone shop in Dearborn and regularly sends money to family in Lebanon via Western Union, was entered into the sweepstakes automatically and recently received a $1,800 travel voucher good for airfare to the destination of his choice. Nadi was among 14 Arab American winners who also represented New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida who sent money to Yemen, Jordan and Sudan. Western Union Market Development Director Darrin Russell asserted, Our motto is really to appeal to the new migrants today and to give back.
