Let`s Show Our Support! Vote for the Philippine Nominees for the New 7 Wonders of Nature...

Leave a Comment
While browsing a friend`s blog earlier, I noticed a certain post which caught my interest and concern... And exactly the reason why I am posting the issue or the topic here at my blog.

There`s a new campaign in the world, and it`s
THE CHANGE FROM MAN-MADE STRUCTURES TO TREASURES OF NATURE... After the success of the first campaign of New7Wonders Foundation for choosing the "New 7 Wonders of the World", now they have organized the second campaign which is to choose the "New 7 Wonders of Nature". New7Wonders Founder and President Bernard Weber notes, "We are finding the New 7 Wonders of Nature campaign to be excitingly different from the first one. So many breathtakingly beautiful, natural places are still quite unknown to many. From waterfalls to fjords, rainforests to mountain peaks, freshwater lakes to salt flats, we are discovering together the incredible beauty and variety of our planet."

Now what`s the good news? Good news is, for about nearly 300 natural sites in the world which have been nominated for the campaign, four of them are our very own or should I say from Philippines. These nominees are clearly defined as Philippines natural sites or natural monuments that were not created or significantly altered by Filipinos for aesthetic reasons.

Below are the four [4]
Philippine Nominees for the New set of Seven [7] Wonders of Nature in no particular order [Mayon Volcano • Tubbataha Reef • Chocolate Hills • Puerto Princesa]...

According to the GMA News Report, the rank of the sites representing Philippines in the bid for the New Seven [7] Wonders of Nature has gone down... So to ensure that one of the sites will make it to the top 7, then we really need your help. So please support and vote.

For the benefit of other bloggers around and to my viewers/readers, to make it easier for you to support and vote for Philippine Sites which are nominees for the New 7 Wonders of Nature, I decided to post the current live ranking of the Philippine nominees here. All you need to do is to click the "vote now for _____" button inside those live ranking boxes above and presto, your vote[s] are in! But of course your vote[s] will only be officially counted after you fill-out some necessary information required to be filled-out. Anyway it will not take long, so just be patient enough... remember that it`s for our own good.

So what are we waiting for, let`s show them what we`ve got and how supportive Filipinos are! Let`s make a difference... Let`s make things happen for all of us Filipinos.
