Toblerone's National Thank You Day

“Thank you”. I know we don’t say it enough, but these two words sometimes is all it takes to make somebody’s day. Be it the security guard who opens the door for you; the waiter who serves your lunch; the brother who helps you with your homework; the mother who loves you unconditionally; even your yaya who takes care of everything for you. These people who we interact with on a daily basis, most often than not, do not receive the gratitude that is due them–we often take for granted what they do for us. I guess everyone is guilty of that.

It’s time to change all that. Bring a smile to someone today by serving some gratitude in return. A simple, but heartfelt, “thank you” is all it takes.

To start this off, let me say a big thank you to all of you, our readers, for your continuous patronage of It’s been year since we first went online, and we probably wouldn’t have made the one year mark if it weren’t for all of you. Thank you so much!

  1. Pwede pa rin po ba i-upload ang photo kahit andun po ko mismo sa photo? Is that still considered as “original work?” Thanks. I really would like to join.
