We have a reason to celebrate today!
I admire Susan "Toots" Ople, the youngest daughter of Blas Ople, also a blogger, and the president of the Ople Policy Center. She graduated in UST and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University where she received a Vernon Award for Excellence in Communication.
We have had several emails already through the effort of Pete, the Area Coordinator of PEBA in Metro Manila, after she decided to support this OFW event and lending Carlo, her Nephew to act as PEBA project Coordinator.
Why we are so happy about this partnership?
Toots Ople is an OFW friend, OFW defender in the truest sense.
She assisted the repatriation of 6 distressed OFW's in Syria, and assisted repatriated OFW.
She lead the filing of charges to the agency of the 137 drivers stranded in Dubai.
She fights for OFW's welfare, and support OFW causes.
Thank you. Thank you very much!

We are overwhelmed, but we are grateful for the positive things that has been going at PEBA.
The one and only place where blogging advocates of our nation gathered to be honored, to be proclaimed as the best and inspiring Pinoy Expats and OFW bloggers.
We thought we were stuck to 32 nominees, but in the last 3 days, we have added two more OFW bloggers, a male hospital administrative staff in Dammam, and a hotel attendant in Canada. Galing! Wag niyo ng paabutin sa 50 ha, maawa kayo, haha! We don't know we still have 20 days to go before the end of the submission of entries.
