ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., July 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The online money transfer service Sharemoney ( announced an online essay contest for people who send money to a student in Vietnam.

Benefactors who live in the United States are invited to visit the "Help a Student in Vietnam" contest tab on the Sharemoney Facebook page and submit a short essay about the student in Vietnam that they financially support. The essay submission that gets the most "likes" will win the student a 13-inch Apple MacBook Air in time for the new semester.

Established in April 2014, Sharemoney is the online money transfer service of Omnex Group, Inc.

The number of university students in Vietnam has roughly doubled since 1990. This time of year, many Vietnamese-Americans send money to Vietnam to help with tuition, books, and other education costs.
