No Bank or Credit Accounts? Use MoneyGram International.

It maybe hard to believe that an adult in this day and age does not have a bank or credit card account to his/her name, but it is possible and is perfectly understandable. A lot of people, and clever ones I think, are investing/re-investing their money instead of putting them in savings accounts. Investments provide far greater return than interests earned from regular bank savings accounts. On the other hand, credit cards, when used uncontrollably, will give more harm than good and convenience to its user.

So if you are this kind of person, or simply does not want to provide access to your accounts to send money internationally to the Philippines, you may use the money transfer service providers like MoneyGram International. Similar to Western Union, the sender goes to an authorized agent, fill out some forms, add complimentary message -I suppose to make the transaction more personal, and in few minutes, your recipient may go to his/her local agent and cash out the money and receive your message.
