We are actually surprised being nominated and being one is already a blessing. Until later, we receive advice from the organizers that we are now an awardee. Wow! It’s really more than just the award that we are very thankful, it is how we, as a couple have been inspiring fellow OFWs and families improve their lives through our blog. It is with so much joy that we know we are able to impact many Kababayan to understand the value of being an OFW.
We thought, writing articles on improving finances ends there. But it’s not, countless emails are received from our subscribers asking further if their financial decision is right. Of course, we are not in the position to tell what is right or wrong, we based our judgment on the financial condition of the person before giving advice. That every decision is their responsibility, we are only here to guide.
Being recognized with such an award has fueled us more to write and provide relevant and practical stories of OFWs and families in order to improve their lives. “We aim to reach more people, to be able to connect with more OFWs who needs guidance in order to eventually go back home and be with their families, bringing with them the success story of being n OFW.”
