akawnTHANKS, Arlan V.

This is a thank you letter from the akawnTHINK's founder.


We are in the process of setting up a foundation which we'll call ‘akawnTHINK cares’ along with several other NGOs. Collectively, it will be the main beneficiary of the time and money contributions as it seeks to advance causes such as, but not limited to, financial literacy, mental health and environmental initiatives.

I thank the Almighty for calling me to do this – may this be a start of somebody’s abundance and trickle down to all the stakeholders; thanks to my ever-beautiful wife-to-be, Krizelle (Yes, I’ve put a ring on her…and a headgear for safety purposes, lol!), for inspiring me to be at my best and see the best of me even if I’m not and in times that I can’t; thanks to my Mom and the rest of my family for the continued love and support; thanks to the man behind the scene – one of my most trusted friends, Evan, who managed to bring my spiral thoughts into a platform; thanks to the A.T.M. contributors (i.e., article, time and money) – all of them I consider as my friends – who didn’t say no and pretended that I’m up to something worthy (You guys are the best!); and to our mentors who are going to be there (Yes sirs/ma'ams, it's mandatory!) to guide us and pick us up along the way, many thanks!


Con mucho respeto to all who signed up for the 'Spiritual Journeys' column. Each coming from a completely different belief system which should bring diversity and, hopefully, a sense of inclusivity in the process. I appreciate the privacy of your journeys and you've only proven that your souls are way bigger than yourselves.

May each of us holistically account for our blessings, and purposely think outside of our self-interests. And, when your time comes, please remember to pay it forward. Gratitude through servitude.

Since you're here...

... we have a small favour to ask. And unlike many new organisations, we have chosen an approach that allows us to keep our journalism accessible to all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.

We will engage with the most critical issues of our time – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.

Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Our journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.

We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism, to maintain our openness and to protect our precious independence. Every reader contribution, big or small, is so valuable. Support akawnTHINK from as little as Php100 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

akawnTHINK.
