What makes World Top-up Day unique for immigrants
MobileRecharge team did all the work for immigrants and collected opinions of proud expats on Instagram. Public ones, of course. So enriching!
Humor is almost a condition when you’re an expat. It’s part of the adaptation for immigrants to the new environment and being relaxed to make it well. So, in 2022 we played around memes. Here’s a proof.
Let’s only mention some. Minority power is extremely valuable and empowering. Sharing your experience is a great way to help. It takes risk, courage and adventure to make it big.
In November 2020, the first year of the global pandemic, the MobileRecharge team created a context that facilitated expat intervention in remote and challenged communities hosted by Kiva.
By simply going along to doing their regular mobile top-up on November 10, World Top-up Day, expats in the community automatically donated a part of the price to local businesses via MobileRecharge.com or the MobileRecharge app. In a matter of seconds, a simple top-up of a family number splits value between top-up costs and a struggling fish seller in Haiti or a group of women in Tonga with their tiny tapa business. More about what happened then and about Kiva in an article from back then.
It was back in 2021 that we broke the ice. Not everyone finds it comfortable, but MobileRecharge team was the first to open up the topic. So, imagine a round table around the topic, everyone sharing in front of the psychologist. Very intimate for immigrants. Here are the expat stories.
And Instagram influencers followed. Here’s Rakesh Rawal’s story and personal images.
In other words, we represent expats in various facets of their lives – their needs, characteristics, and the people they support (another perspective on “work” and expat jobs, don’t you think?).

Since 2015, MobileRecharge dropped fees on November 10 to make room for more generosity. That is for international mobile top-ups from expats to their far-away families. Whether gifts or support, the day is dedicated to kindness.
Holidays are fun. But that doesn’t exclude a bonus buzz. It never ends on MobileRecharge.com, not even on World Top-up Day. Which is also the case in 2023.
