Today, Filipinos celebrates National Heroes Day. This is for those who fight for the freedom of our country against foreign invasions. Sacrifices like what Andres Bonifacio or Apolinario Mabini’s did for the nation are truly deserve a salute and gratitude from every Filipino.
New heroes came into surface. They also give reasons for the country to be proud and secure, in terms of economic stability. Overseas Filipino Workers are now our modern-day hero.
Admit it or not, the country relied on remittances of hard-earned money of around 11 million OFWs.
As a way of thanking them, Commission of Filipinos Overseas, Duty Free Philippines, Good News Pilipinas, Kraft Asia and Toblerone launched the Thank You Global Pinoy Awards.
It is an initiative that seeks to search for the most outstanding global Filipino workers who deserve the gratitude of most Filipinos.
Participants need to log on www.thankyouglobalpinoy.com to register, nominate and vote for the ultimate Global Pinoy. The 10 best stories will be awarded in January next year.
