Filinvest City's The Search: Full Contest Mechanics
October 30, 2020



With glaring clarity, 2020 has stripped off all the “trimmings” and made us focus on what’s important: the PEOPLE in our lives, the PEOPLE who make a difference in our community.

This Christmas, more than ever, we need to come together in a meaningful way. To honor these people who are worth celebrating. For when the night is dark, we look to the light to guide us.

INSPIRED by the everyday heroes all around us, may we realize that each one of us has it in him/her - to spark hope in those who think they have lost it. To ignite joy even in dark days. To be that light for others.



We are searching for the most inspiring stories of frontliners in Filinvest City – ordinary people who have gone above and beyond their duty to make a difference, even for just a moment in a person’s life.
