TFC launches “Pamilya Ko, Buhay Ko,” stories of hope and inspiration

supported by myREMIT

October 1, 2013 (QUEZON CITY, PHILIPPINES) – The Filipino Channel (TFC), the only network truly in the service of Filipinos wherever they may be, launches “Pamilya Ko, Buhay Ko,” stories of hope and inspiration, in partnership with the network’s remittance arm in the Philippines, E-Moneyplus, Inc. under its brand myREMIT.

TFC will search the world for stories of overseas Filipinos (OFs) who have inspired others with their success stories, making them worthy of admiration and emulation. These include Filipinos who have triumphed over adversity, paid it forward and built their dreams especially for their kapamilyas or family and including for their communities.

“Pamilya Ko, Buhay Ko,” stories of hope and inspiration supported by myREMIT,” is open to all Filipinos of legal age and who are based in any part of the world, where there is TFC. They can visit TFC facebook pages worldwide and simply follow the instructions. Supporting photos of these worthy Pinoys and their families or beneficiaries are highly encouraged.

At least one winner will be chosen from each of the identified continents: U.S.A., Canada, Europe, Australia, Middle East, Japan, and some parts of Asia like Hong Kong and Singapore. A total of twenty winners who struggled and succeeded and then shared their blessings with their family, friends and communities in the Philippines will be chosen as winners. The winners will be featured in one of the exclusive shows of TFC. Each of the twenty winners’ designated beneficiaries in the Philippines will receive Php 20,000.00 through myRemit.

According to myREMIT Business Unit Head Raymund Abog, “Both TFC and myREMIT believe that anywhere they are in the world, OFs’ success stories showcase how best Filipinos work and struggle to make it in a foreign land and sometimes go beyond by extending the help not just to their families but to their kababayans. Moreover, these inspiring narratives will motivate their fellow Filipinos to create their own success stories. We are expecting a lot of touching entries from all walks of life, from every part of the world.”
