It came as good news to me that a Filipino company promotes a unique advocacy of spreading a "Happy-demic".
Cebuana Lhullier Insurance Solutions, Inc. (CLIS) launched the Happiest Pinoy search which "seeks and recognizes the country's most optimistic and passionate Filipino who overcame difficulties and exhibited resilience amidst life's challenges without losing their cheerful attitude."
It is bringing this nationwide search to Cebu to give chance to Cebuanos to nominate also.
Any Filipino residing in the Philippines, of legal age and good moral character may be nominated.
Nominations are still open until May 30, 2012.
There are online nomination forms which can be downloaded, accomplished then uploaded back to http://www.happiest-pinoy.com/.
Accomplished forms may also be sent to Cebuana Lhullier Insurance Solutions Head Office, 821A Spring corner J. P. Rizal Streets, Makati City.
Criteria for selecting the Happiest Pinoy include:
- A constantly cheerful face and optimistic outlook
- Proven ability to rise above life's challenges.
- Positive impact on the lives of others.
The grand winner will receive P250,000 tax-free and a trophy. The nine runners-up will receive P25,000 (tax-free) each aside from a trophy.
For more information, follow Happiest Pinoy in Facebook, Twitter, and in their website and submit your nominations.
Spread the Happy-demic. And smile despite the challenges of having PKD!
