The annual Valentine’s Day love fest is nearly here with flowers, cards and heart-shaped chocolates selling like crazy across the globe. But instead of splashing out on the same predictable treats as everyone else, why not try something a little different in 2017 – and do some good for a wonderful charity at the same time?

Azimo recently signed former football legend Kanu as our new brand ambassador, and to celebrate we’ve pledged to donate a percentage of every transaction to Nigeria to support the Kanu Heart Foundation.

Kanu’s playing career was interrupted by a serious heart defect and he had to have surgery in 1996. The experience inspired him to set up the foundation in 2000 to help children in Nigeria and other African countries get the life-saving heart surgery and cardiac treatment they so desperately need but so often can’t afford. To date, the foundation has helped to fund more than 500 operations.

So every time you make a transfer to Nigeria with Azimo, you’ll be helping to save a life as well. Oh, and don’t forget that you’ll also enjoy zero fees, brilliant rates and a lightning-fast service every time – and with transfers taking as little as six seconds, you’ve still got enough time left to make this Valentine’s Day truly special with Azimo!

Simply click here to visit Azimo’s dedicated Nigeria country page and start saving money and lives today. And as an added treat, we’re giving you an extra £10 off your next transfer to Nigeria when you use the promo code PAPILO before the end of February 2017 – all of which means that you can afford to send a little extra back home to your nearest and dearest. It beats an overpriced bunch of roses any day!
