Gratitude Day-Tak til Støtten Danmark Fra Filippinerne

Dear kababayans in Denmark,

In the aftermath of the typhoon HAIYAN/YOLANDA, the strongest ever in recent world history which has rendered hundreds of thousands of our countrymen homeless, with over 5000 casualties even as rescue operations continue, it is affirming and heartwarming to see. the whole world reacting positively!   We have felt the empathy, the solidarity and sympathy of the Danish people. We saw how Denmark excelled as one of the first nations in the globe to respond with a monetary assistance of DKK 42  Million which is equivalent to roughly around  Php_336 Million  plus NGO’s that are based in Denmark are leading the relief effort and still doing their best to fundraise for the  the typhoon victims.

Then, on a cold December day 4 weeks ago at Rådhuspladsen/Copenhagen City Hall Square, we have seen strong Danish goodwill towards the Philippines manifest itself into significant donations of money and goods!   As well all the other Fundrasing from several Filipino Organizations, Churches as well as group of 2nd generation Filipinos and individuals who gave their time to support the our poor kababayan who were devastated by the typhoon Haiyan/Yoland. You can eventually inform us your fundariaising activities so we can include it to the ENFID register as well as the Commission on Filipinos Overseas. Gratitude Day is an ENFID initiative and now  Filipinos all over the world followed simultenous event will have a greater impact to the world to show our appreciation to our respective host country. This event is endorsed by Secretary Imelda Nicolas of Commission on Filipino Oversear (CFO).

Gratitude Day invitation

Gratitude Day invitation

So it is time to give back!   ENFID, the European Network for Filipinos in Diaspora DK invites everyone to

A DAY of GRATITUDE   where we can all come together to collectively say THANK YOU to the Danish people. We have chosen December 18 which is also International Migrants Day, to Our permit allows distribute small tasty morsels from our Philippine merienda table. Or flowers like roses. But hugs and kisses – kys og kram- will also be a new way of showing gratitude and costs nothing, so this will be our optimal weapon on that day. You can also bring cakes, pastries and placards with your name /group /organization plus your  message such as thank you Denmark, tak for støtten danmark,  god bless denmark the philippines etc.  We will show gratitude to Europe’s outpouring of massive support, both moral and financial, to our country in its time of need!  For your information this event is not a Fundaraisng event. We will not collect donation, just a plain show of appreciation. We hope you can invite your members, family and friends

Please dress warmly and Be there!

To those who cannot join Rådhuspladsen you can still join by taking a picture and your message and use it on you FB profile on the dayor make a video and post it Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, youtube  or blog about  and use #gratitudeph2dk or gratitudeph so it will be searchable in the social media.

ÅBENT BREV FRA DET FILIPPINSKE FOLK I Danmark

ÅBENT BREV FRA  DET FILIPPINSKE FOLK I Danmark

Til Redaktionerne

Grundet Megatyfonen Haiyan/Yolanda, som er den stærkeste nogensinde registreret i mands’ minde, kom hele verden til Filippinernes undsætning, især til den del af landet der var mest ødelagt, dvs. i den central del af øriget, Visayas regionen. Og dette skete straks efter at landet blev ramt af et jordskælv der ramte næsten den samme område i provinserne Cebu og Bohol. Den massiv udtryk af sympati der mundede ud i form af katastrofehjælp fra det internationale samfund: regeringer, NGOerne, internationale og lokale  lgørenheds organisationer, erhvervs sektoren samt almindelige borgere i de forskellige lande,  kan ikke går upåskønnet.. Derfor vil vi Filippinere verden over gerne afholde en Taknemmeligheds Uge (Week of Gratitude)  fra den 15  til 22. december 2013. Initiativet kommer fra  ENFID (European Network of Filipino Diaspora), netværket I Europa for  filippinere der har forladt hjemlandet af forskellige grunde, og meningen er at begivenheden skal få  alle filippinere til at stå sammen, være synlig i offentlighedens lys mens vi uddeler  KYS, KNUS og KRAM,  vise vore paroler der siger Mange Tak, og påberåber vor TAKNEMMELIGHED til Hele Verden Ligesom  i andre europaeiske lande har  vi filippinere i Danmark valgt at  holde denne special begivenhed samme dag som International Migrants Day (De internationale indvandringsdag)  den 18 December 2013.

Vi håber at se så mange danskere som muligt i Rådhuspladsen på onsdag, den 18e., fra kl. 17:00 til 19:30 for at kunne udveksle et par orde med os,  modtage vores taknemmelighed og varme. Tusinde Tak til hele befolkning i vores værtslande..

”Hvor end der er et menneske, eksisterer der en mulighed for venlighed.” -   Seneca.    The European Network of Filipino Diaspora www.enfid.org For yderligere info/ Pls. Contact:  Ana Lindenhann, mobil:  53500574
