Dingdong to Launch Delivery App for Jobless Showbiz Workers

 

 By Rose de la Cruz

With the long quarantine that rendered jobless many people, including those in showbusiness, celebrity Dingdong Dantes has designed and will soon launch a new delivery app that will employ them as riders.

In a chat on Fireside last Thursday, Dantes said the app to be called Ding Dong PH was a result of his wife, Marian Rivera’s recent problem in delivering the flowers she prepared for a client.

After that, he improvised an alternative where he volunteered to use his scooter to bring the flower arrangements.

In the past weeks, after talking with friends who share the same vision and passion, an idea was developed, hence the birth of Doorbell Technologies,” the virtual roundtable — which also included Rico Blanco, Matteo Guidicelli, Nico Bolzico, and Drew Arellano. It was organized by the law firm Gorriceta Africa Caution & Saavedra.

Dantes has not shared any details of Ding Dong PH saying announcements are scheduled for later dates. He, however, shared what inspired the app’s development.

“Kung gagawa ako ng isang bagay, gusto ko klaro ‘yung kaniyang social impact and then kung ano man ang mangyayari later, we will see. That is why another inspiration behind this is the fact that I have several workmates who lost their jobs in the entertainment industry,” he said.

The riders we will use are those who lost their jobs in the showbiz industry, Dingdong said adding that the social impact is of paramount concern to him. “Everything else will follow.”
