Help us find THE ONE PHILIPPINES: The Search for Unsung Heroes

Since I was a kid, it has always been my desire to help. I have a dream to build my own orphanage. I have know idea how, but I know I will get there. Same with THE ONE, the goal to serving humanity is such a humble experience to many people who we do not know about. They are just around doing their thing to help without anything in return.

THE ONE Philippines Humanitarian Award (TOP), a subsidiary project of THE ONE International Humanitarian Award, recently launched its search for unsung heroes in the Philippines who are doing good for and within the community.
 
 
By recognizing these unsung heroes, TOP aims to further their good work with monetary reward, at the same time boosting the spirit and morel of Philippines residents to serve and encourage more selfless good work. This is in line with Rotary motto "Service above Self".
 
THE ONE, conceptualized and founded by David Harilela, a successful businessman and past district governor of Rotary in Hongkong, THE ONE has been recognizing and awarding these heroes since 2012. I was so honored to have met this man of good heart. I also met one of its first finalist, Cecilia Oebanda-Flores who was recognized for providing shelter for human trafficking victims in the Philippines.
 
The search will happen in August 2017 and will end in January 2018. The Gala Awards Night is scheduled in May or June 2018, the special evening dedicated the amazing men and women on of whom will be the first TOP.
 
 
The winner of the first TOP will receive Php 1,500,000.00 and a trophy. He or she will also automatically represent the Philippines in THE ONE International Awards and get a chance to win again.

Two runners-up will also be chosen and each will receive Php 500,000.00. The award money must be used to further the winners' humanitarian cause and service projects. 
 
TOP will donate, in the name of the nominator who nominates the winner, Php 150,000.00 to a Philippine Government-approved charitable organization or a Rotary club in the Philippines designated by this nominator.
