Thank You

Thank you very much for the donations you've sent to those affected by the recent typhoon storms. The outpouring of generosity has been overwhelming!

We are still accepting your donations at all of our branches.

The Greatness of Gratitude

Smiling and saying thanks does a lot more than you think.

  • Makes you look a lot better. Erase those frown lines and replace them with laugh lines. It will give your face a more relaxed and pleasant look. This will draw people to spend time with you.
  • Scientifically proven! Dr. Robert Emmons, a Professor of Psychology at the University of California at Davis, conducted a study on being grateful. Respondents who were tasked to be more grateful during a period of 3 weeks reported better sleep and exercise patterns. They were more optimistic about the coming week and fewer reported physical symptoms, such as pain. Moreover, his team observed an increase in reported connectedness to other people and in the likelihood of helping another person deal with a personal problem.
  • Stress relief. The dog ate your homework? Instead of taking it out on the dog, think of 4 or 5 things you are thankful for. You'll notice an instant change of perspective and feel emotionally better.
  • Helps other become better people too! Gratitude when expressed unleashes a cycle of kindness and caring in others too. People just have to reciprocate when you are kind to them! So go ahead say "thank you"!
  • If you're still not convinced, think of this. Holding a grudge or negative emotion releases toxic chemicals inside your system which when felt repeatedly leads to chronic illness.

How did you fare? If you want to increase your score, practice the attitude of gratitude every day by being conscious of your blessings. Write them down in a journal at the end of each day.
Make a habit of sharing the things you're thankful for with your best friend or spouse.

A nice tradition every Sunday before dinner is to say a simple thanksgiving prayer for something that happened the past week. Be sure to let the kids join!

If you consistently do this for 2-3 weeks, you would have developed this into a habit. Keep at it, it will do wonders!


Dear Friend,

I'm sure you'll agree that every day can be a day to celebrate and to give thanks. It's always time well spent when we look back and remember both the easy times and the times when we've had to overcome our fiercest obstacles.

The American pilgrims back in the 1600s had a painstaking journey on a vessel where many lost their lives. Arriving at Plymouth Rock, they faced an extreme winter cold that took it's toll on many more lives. Fortunately, a native Indian taught them how to grow their own food and this saved the people from starvation.

That summer, a severe drought came so the people turned to fasting and prayer, bringing down rain showers at the end of the day. If those people were not grateful, we would not have known their stories which were passed down from generation to generation.

Do we have a story to tell and to celebrate during this season?

One single grateful thought raised to heaven is the most perfect prayer.-G. E. Lessing
