"I am truly thankful toward the Philippines, being the very source of my most sincere contentment in life."
Inspired by hospitality, and paid back with sincerity, the Salamat Philippines fan page is a token of our gratitude. Officially founded in 2015, and released as a gift to the Philippines in 2018, Salamat Philippines aims to become the Philippines fan page for all. So weather your a patriotic Filipino, a seasoned vacationer, or new to the Philippines entirely, if your passionate about the Philippines, then this website was built for you.
What do we offer?
The backbone of our Philippines fan page is the official Philippines Guest Book! This is where people from all around the world are given the opportunity to make leave their mark on the Philippines by signing the official Guest Book with their own tokens of gratitude. Additionally, in an effort to familiarize our members with Philippine geography, our interactive map of the Philippines islands makes it easy to explore it's administrative regions. Each region on our map is outlined in it's own separate page, just click on the region your interested in, and the site will load a detailed page about that entire area. Each regions page is complete with links to it's respective forum.
We are not only a fan page, but we are also a fundraising vehicle driven by our passionate members. It's our intention to avoid accidentally contributing to already existing problems by carefully selecting who we partner with. It's also our well intention to help the Philippines move forward by both education, and proper, non-harmful, financial assistance.
This is not your typical Philippines tourism website! Pulling a lot of our inspiration from Jose Rizal, and more recently President Duterte; we've set out on a mission to shine a unique light on the Philippines and it's people. We wanted to provide you with something different, something true, and well intended. For a fan site that meant keeping our content clean, unique, and as non-bias as possible.
Additionally, we wanted to dispel the many myths and falsehoods about the Philippines and it's people. Throughout the years many of these falsehoods have unintentionally harmed the country in many different ways. The truth is that there has long been a silent exploitation of the Philippines and it's people. We believe it's time for a new light to shine upon the Philippines. That is why we made it our humble mission to help the Philippines and it's amazing people in our own way, by organizing and connecting those who truly love the country for the right reasons.
- Show the Philippines some LOVE by giving thanks!
- Think outside the box.
- Eliminate falsehoods that negatively effect the Philippines.
- Encourage new tourism in the Philippines.
- Educate tourists to maximize their experience.
- Build a community of experts on the Philippines.
- Connect the community with trusted charities.
Tools for Fundraising & Nonprofit Organizations
How can we help?
With a community built on true love of country and culture, we provide an optimistic audience base that is motivated to give back in the Philippines. Additionally, our regional fundraising forums provide a means for members to reach out and organize charitable events in particular areas. This means you can easily attract more quality specific attention to your charity or fundraiser. It's our goal to bring attention to small charities and fundraisers like yours that are both transparent, time-tested, and trustworthy. This is why we offer a free review of your charitable program for possible inclusion on our charities and fundraisers page.
How does it work?
After contacting us for further instructions, upon review, a account will be created for your organization along with a complete listing on our page, and a user-review topic under the fundraising forum for the closest region you serve. Members will be able to contact you via personal message, or by visiting your website link. Your account will remain active with us as long as our community reviews of your organization remain positive, and/or fraud is not suspected by our admins. The purpose behind this is to fulfill one of our site goals, and that is to connect the community with trusted charities.
The Salamat Philippines Gift Shop and Fundraiser exists to serve many purposes, but perhaps its most useful purpose being its fundraising potential. 100% of our shop proceeds are saved in a fund that disperses emergency payments in $50 increments to organizations like yours who are registered with Salamat Philippines. Funds are currently limited, but we are constantly trying to come up with new ways raise money for those who are doing such wonderful work in the Philippines. Salamat!
