Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are our modern-day heroes. Even without sword or gun, their sacrifices for the love of their family and helping the country’s economy are inevitable.

They are inspirations to many Filipinos and deserve to be recognized.

And with this reason that the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, Duty Free Philippines, and Kraft Asia paid tribute to the Global Pinoys that have showed excellence not only in their careers, but also in the initiatives to help their fellowmen in the country, through the Thank You Global Pinoy Awards.


The Thank You Global Pinoy Awards is an initiative to search for the most outstanding global Filipino workers who deserve the gratitude not only of their loved ones; but also of the nation as a whole. It was primarily led by the Commission of Filipinos Overseas, the government agency tasked to promote and uphold the interests of Filipino emigrants and permanent residents abroad.

The online nominations ran from October 2011 to February 2012, and 10 outstanding overseas Filipino workers have been chosen and will be announced during the Awards Night on March 15, 2012.

Be part of a grateful nation. Join the rest of the country as it honors the ultimate global Pinoy, whom a grateful nation will say a resounding thank you to. For more information, visit www.thankyouglobalpinoy.com.
