Reading through all your stories makes it look like I have it easy. You guys are one tough bunch of Pinoys! Your stories reflect how we Filipinos are truly are hard-working individuals. But aside from being known for working hard, you show one common thing with each other and that is the drive to make a change for someone or something. It may be your family, your dream, your aspirations. Whatever the goal, all this creates a positive effect that lingers through our hearts and minds for both receiver and giver. My salute to all tough Pinoys!

It wasn't easy choosing the winners. Here are my top 3 picks in no particular order.

Jameela Malicdem - I envy the road you took at such a young age. If I could just turn back the hands of time, I would probably be more active in being involved in different organizations that made a change to myself and to others.

May Ann Saturno - Your work is literally a back breaking job! I can just imagine how strained your eyes and stiff your muscles must be at the end of every shift. On the bright side, it is a great feeling knowing you have made a positive difference somebody's life

Ferdinand Angeles - Micro-entrepreneurs is the solution to alleviating poverty. I admire you for being an instigator of entrepreneurship to our fellow countrymen who have little or no resources at all. The dangers that go with the work seems to be enveloped by your determination of helping others.

Thank you for all your entries. For the winners, please wait for an email on how to claim your prizes. Prizes will be released on August 15
