It’s (almost) the Christmas season and most of us are in a mad rush to think of presents to give to our loved ones. Instead of buying any generic item just to be able to say that we gave a gift, why not put a little thought to our gift giving efforts?
Yabang Pinoy, through its launch of the PHmade movement, again encourages Filipinos to support Filipino ideas, business concepts, products and services. PHmade’s tagline is “It’s Worth Buying For.” Think of the positive impact that going local contributes to the economy. It’s the multiplier effect at work in our economy: the price you paid for an item goes not only to the seller, but also his employees, his suppliers and service providers, his supplier’s suppliers, employees, etc. As more entrepreneurs create, develop, and expand their businesses, more job opportunities are generated.
PHmade is a project of Yabang Pinoy, the pioneering Filipino pride movement that started in 2005. As it celebrates its 8th anniversary, the organization includes it among numerous Filipino pride projects, such as the Y.A.B.A.N.G. Camp (Youth Achievers Building A Nation of Greatness Camp), Yabang Pinoy Goes to School, Pinaka-mahabang Todo Patintero, Global Pinoy Bazaar, and many more. In the 8 years that Yabang Pinoy has immersed itself in various nation-building activities, it re-affirms its belief that true progress and development in our country will start once Filipinos begin living a proudly Filipino lifestyle.
