Toblerone's Thank You Day Contest


There are more than a thousand reasons why I should be thankful for - my family, friends, blessings, studies, career, etc; and at the same time, there are that much ways I can express my thanks and gratitude for all of these. Chocolates, flowers, thank you card, a kiss, what have you.

I guess, I would like to thank my cousins, for being always there, in good times and in bad times, for sticking with each other always. :) (P.S. Happy Birthday Lujean!)

Once again, October 20 marks the National Thank You Day, an event spearheaded and sponsored by Toblerone, a popular international Swiss chocolate brand, for the third (3rd) time.

This event highlights two simple yet powerful words - THANK YOU. We have seen how the Filipino people have expressed their love and gratitude to an international icon of democracy. Thank you President Cory Aquino. This is why, the thought that we, Filipinos, are well known to be very accommodating and hospitable people in the globe.

In the previous National Thank You Day, the Filipinos proved to the world that the country is united in gratefulness – debunking the Reader’s Digest survey which claimed that the Philippines is one of the least courteo
us nations in the world.

In line with this, The Philippines and Beyond, with Kraft Foods (Toblerone) and GeiserMaclang, Inc. will be launching this contest, "Spread the Sweetness of Gratitude Photo Contest," on how Filipinos can come up with creative ways to spread the gratitude fever by getting people to say ‘thank you’.

Toblerone wants this spirit of thankfulness to extend further to the whole country. And you can join in by showing us how you say Thank You.
