Scattered around the globe from their humble but proud beginnings, the Filipino race continues to shine in little and big ways, mesmerizing the world along the way.

This blog is about the triumphs of Filipinos wherever they are as they contribute to national pride. This is about you, me and every Pinoy. This is the continuing story of the Filipino people. Ipagmalaki!

EveryJuan, a hero: When blogger Jay Jaboneta learned about the daily plight of around 200 young children in Zamboanga who have to SWIM half a mile everyday just to get to school, he knew he had to help out somehow. Using Facebook as a simple platform, he encouraged his friends to pitch in the effort, and a few days later, support for their small campaign snowballed, eventually raising P70,000 in funds.
Today, the young children from Layag-Layag, Zamboanga no longer have to struggle daily to keep their bags and school uniforms above their heads to prevent these from getting wet. Their new school boat, named Bagong Pag-Asa or New Hope, brings them safely to their destination.
Watch the story here.
Everyday, thousands of Filipino children have to face arduous treks through mountains, jungles and rivers just to get a taste of education. And, everyday a number of ordinary, but impassioned Filipinos, try to make a difference: showcasing modern-day heroism is well within everyone’s capacity.
