This digital age has uncovered hidden Filipino talents for the rest of the world to see. And they, too, wanted their voices be heard to raise awareness and ask for help. Viral artists Zendee (aka Random Girl in the Mall) and Aldrich Talonding (of “Dance With My Father” fame) led more than a dozen talented Pinoy singers from Austria to Australia for this unique collaboration for a common cause.

WORK HARD, EARN, SAVE, INVEST AND SPEND WISELY. THIS IS THE HABIT OF RICH AND SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE.

Ganito ba ang nangyayari sa iyo? Tanggap ng sweldo, Bayad ng Utang, Gastos ng Natira, Trabaho then Tanggap uli ng Sweldo, then ulit na naman and so on and so forth. We call this as "Rat Race" kung saan ang daga ay paikot-ikot lamang ang habol sakeso at hindi maka-alis sa cycle o paikot-ikot na buhay ng Sweldo-Bayad-Utang.

You work hard and yet you feel that you are still in debt and your income is still insufficient for you. To some, the solution is to ask for a raise in their salaries from their employer. Sabi ni Robert Kiyosaki sa kanyang librong "Retire Rich and Retire Young", "if you want to get rich, don't ask for a raise. Instead of asking for a raise, begin to ask how you can serve more people. In fact, if you are serious about becoming rich, you don't really want a raise.  "Most people are not aware that there is good income and bad income, and most people do not become rich because they work hard for bad income. When you ask for a raise, you ask an increase in bad income. If you want to retire young and retire rich, you need to work hard for the right kind of income."
