Team Pinoy Inc, (TPI) a social enterprise focusing on bringing out the inherent greatness of every Filipino, while instilling an unwavering nationalistic pride for our country is launching a 2011 Planner entitled, “Our Country is in My Planner.”
In the pages of the planner, lie the candid hopes, as well as the ambitions of Filipinos united by the same passion for the country. The planner seeks to voice out what seems to be a hopeful, imminent future; a future that can only be molded by the cooperation of each and every Filipino.
For each month in the Team Pinoy planner, there is a compilation of suggestions from credible and highly regarded individuals and groups on how Filipinos can practice the theme in their everyday lives.
Among the 52 sharers/icons from various sectors include CheChe Lazaro, Dingdong Dantes, Grace Padaca, Reese Fernandez, Rico Hizon, Kara David, Maritess Vitug, Patis Tesoro, Alex Lacson, Chin-Chin Gutierrez, Father Fernando Suarez, Jim Paredes and many more.
The themes for each month are the following:
January | Follow traffic rules. Follow the Law. | Order
February | Whenever you buy or pay for anything, always ask for an official receipt. | Honesty and transparency
March | Don’t buy smuggled goods. Buy local. Buy Filipino. Heritage and Culture
April | When you talk to others, especially foreigners, speak positively about us and our country. |Good Filipino Representation
May | Respect your traffic officer, policeman, and soldier. | Respect for authority
June | Do not litter. Segregate. Recycle.Conserve | Care for the Environment

TPI believes in the strength of each Filipino in becoming a catalyst for positive change and in how we, in our individual ways, are a significant contributor to a better future for our country.
Although TPI has big dreams for the Philippines and our people, the ways by which it plans to achieve and promote change is through very small, simple acts of patriotism.
Helping the country need not be in the form of giving large sums of money to charitable causes, or making very big sacrifices for the good of the country. These grand things may be a big service to the nation but it should not be forgotten that small acts would be just as effective, inspiring, and capable of sparking change.
All of these points to how TPI’s main advocacy is to propagate a “Citizen Revolution”, wherein each Filipino can contribute to nation-building no matter what the circumstances are.
As one of its concrete channels, TPI showcases their mission for a better Pinoy and a better Philippines through the 2011 Team Pinoy Planner, “Our Country is in My Planner”.
