    Hi Hans,
    We’ll see. Entire week is booked for a team building we’re conducting next week. ;-)

    Always happy to see how people are contributing in ways they know.
    Whether it’s volunteering in relief work, packing relief goods, retweeting or praying.
    Many ways to do our part.
    And if it’s an awarding ceremony, that’s a contribution, ain’t it? ;-)

    Para sa bayan!
