There were 83 blog nominees in the nomination list, but only 47 of you made it to the finals. Congratulations! In the coming days and month on the way to the awarding ceremony, we will introduce you in posts and videos for the world to know your extraordinary courage to come out and respond to a call - and share a part of you, your blog, and your stories to inspire the OFWs and their families and to inspire the world. It was a long journey since July 2010, when we first opened the nomination.
The photo submission of entries continues, at present, we have received from 8 countries and 15 contestants with over 40 unique and beautiful photos. We hope to receive a hundred photos or perhaps more by the end of November.
Our organization is run by volunteers, OFWs and bloggers worldwide, not a single cent is being paid to us, and sometimes we even use our own money and time and talent for PEBA. And yet PEBA is getting better and bigger. That's because of you. You are all winners. From the pool of these nominees will come some of our best and brightest volunteers who are motivated too, by the desire to reach out, and to share whatever good we have for others, for the world. This is run by Filipinos, by blood and by heart, thank you to our dear key persons from around the world, from Saudi Arabia, from the US, from South Korea, from Palau, from Qatar, from Kuwait, from Singapore, from Taiwan, from Ireland, from England... and many other countries. This is what makes this organization unique, it is run online, and it culminates in a grand awarding ceremony that some call, the great-great-bloggers EB! (Eyeball) What do you see PEBA after 5 years? 10 years? We don't know. Honestly, we don't know, but it just getting better and better. And we owe this from you, past and present nominees and winners, as well as our supporters from this world wide web!
