About the filipino.com


It is thefilipino.com’s goal to connect Filipinos in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, and worldwide. TheFilipino.com started in Dec 1999 when AOL was the popular social site, Lycos and Netscape where the popular search engines, dial-up internet connection, and when internet was still on a per hour rate.

TheFilipino.com’s vision has always been connecting Filipinos online and has served the Filipino Community for the last 13 years. Though it has seen changes on the internet through the years, thefilipino.com is still for Filipinos wherever they are.

There are over 8 million Filipinos outside the Philippines working or migrating throughout the world with 3 million in the US. Filipinos are generally industrious and caring people and willing to contribute to the society or country they are in. Filipinos send balikbayan boxes containing anywhere from candies, diapers, coffee, or any household items which they share with their families left behind in the Philippines. Filipinos also send money back to the Philippines to help their families. This is common practice. So, if you’re married to one, don’t be surprised why your spouse has to support their family in the Philippines. It’s just customary and the Filipino’s soft and caring heart.

So, welcome to TheFilipino.com’s site and hope we can help you.

Maraming Salamat Po. (Thank You)

    Are there any Filipino-American social groups in Las Vegas? My husband is Filipino. We retired in Las Vegas in March 2014. We’d like to join a community so we could make some friends here. We were members of the FilAm Association in Colorado Springs, CO for years and we miss it.

  3. Good afternoon,

    Cuso International, a development organization that is one of North America’s largest non-profit groups promoting long-term development through volunteers, is seeking skilled Diaspora professionals to place in the Philippines

    In order to help us recruit Filipinos interested in volunteering their skills in their native country, we will be hosting two live information sessions, one June 27th in Los Angeles and one July 1 in Houston (http://cusointernational.org/content/diaspora-development-information-sessions-los-angeles-and-houston) and 5 online webinars (http://cusointernational.org/sites/default/files/poster%20for%20webinars.pdf) , where interested candidates can attend to get more information about Cuso International’s work and our Diaspora project.

    I was wondering whether your organization would be willing to share this great opportunity with its Filipino network and contacts,

    For more information, please contact me directly (josee.perron@cusointernational.org)

    Thank you kindly,

  4. Hi,

    I’m Emilie Batard, working with Justin Garrido, the co-founder of SocialProject.PH – crowdfunding a better Philippines. I’m emailing you to see if you or the Filipino journal will be interested in featuring any of our exciting projects and partners as well as learning more about our platform and what we’re trying to do to help alleviate poverty in the Philippines. I’ve attached our press kit as well as info about our project partners. Below is more information.

    http://www.socialproject.ph has launched the (beta) website May 23 with five social good projects in the Philippines.

    Our Dropbox link to the press kit: http://bit.ly/10wMC7V

    SocialProject.PH is a US-registered platform for Philippine social enterprises and non-profit organizations to raise funds for compelling and relevant social projects that will help to alleviate poverty in the Philippines, as well as to address other social and environmental challenges in this beautiful country of 7,107 islands. We connect inspiring initiatives to advocates, partners in building communities.

    We are looking to engage overseas Filipinos, local Filipinos, and friends of the Philippines as supporters for our projects and partners. In this regard we have developed a strategic partnership with the Commission on Filipinos Overseas under the Office of the President of the Philippines for cross-promotions with our related programs to engage the Filipino diaspora and those interested in the Philippines.

    Background of Justin Garrido- Why

    As a FilAm I moved back to the Philippines to pursue this venture with my FilAus former MBA classmate, as a way to address poverty by supporting the current eco-system of non-profits, social enterprises, and corporations here in the country. With over 1/3 of our people still in poverty, and despite the positive economic progress of the Philippines, we felt more had to be done in regards to inclusive growth at the base of the pyramid. Hence, we feature projects related to education, livelihood, environmental sustainability, as well as health-related initiatives in a fun, transparent, and engaging way via a donation & rewards based crowdfunding platform.

    Our five awesome pilot projects are:
    Hapinoy: Kayang-Kayang Kumita sa Hapinoy – A financial literacy and skills training for 600 sari-sari store Nanays in provinces in Bicol.

    Bambowtie (Bambike company) and Gawad Kalinga (GK): Look cool, send kids to school! Developing bamboo products with the GK Tarlac community which provide them livelihood and with a portion of the proceeds going towards an education fund for the children in Victoria, Tarlac.

    Stiftung Solar Energy Foundation: Solar Power to the People – Providing 600 solar beneficiaries with 90 solar lamps to support livelihood and education in the off-the-grid rural community in Apia, Antipolo.

    Gifts & Graces Foundation: Design workshops and lab for Social Innovation – Bringing in top designers to train 30 co-op partners from across the Philippines on making higher value products for workshops in Manila.

    Ayala Foundation: Support the education of our bright CENTEX students – Providing up to 10 grade school scholarships for underprivileged youth scholars in Tondo, Manila and Bauan, Batangas.

    Plus we have over 50 credible social enterprise and NGO partners in the pipeline with an estimated 100+ potential social good projects for throughout the Philippines.

    Below is a Financial Times article that gives some background about us and this initiative.

    Maraming salamat po!

    Dear Friends at The Philipino,

    Would you be interested in printing a short article to inform people from the Philippines about how oil palm plantations in the Palawan are destroying the farmlands, hunting grounds and forest products of indigenous people there. Their water sources are being polluted and they are being impoverished to an unprecedented level.

    I am trying to help ALDAW (Ancestral Land/Domain Watch) who would write the article. They need to know how long the article should be.

    In their words:

    “Few places in Southeast Asia can match the distinction of Palawan, in the Philippines. This is home to seven protected areas, a declared “Game Refuge and Bird Sanctuary” since 1967 and a “Mangrove Reserve” since 1981. UNESCO declared the whole Province a ‘Man and Biosphere Reserve’ in 1990. Our friends at ALDAW (Ancestral Land/Domain Watch) have brought a very worrying issue to our attention: the massive destruction that is ongoing on the Philippine island of Palawan at the hands of the oil palm industry.

    Please let me know if you are interested.
