PHLPost also launched the “Salamat Po Teacher” letter writing for young people to effectively promote the value of gratitude to teachers and the important role they play in the lives of the students and society.

Despite the existence of modern means of communications like mobile phones and the social network, PHLPost hopes to bring back the passion of letter writing in today’s generation through a nationwide campaign involving students, teachers and educators who shaped the country’s future.

“Through letters and stamps, we pay tribute to our beloved and hardworking teachers who play an important role in shaping the future of the students under their guidance and care”, Postmaster General Joel Otarra said.

The cartoon-style colored postage stamps were designed by PHLPost graphic artist Rodine Teodoro illustrating a teacher “patiently guiding and teaching her student for a better future”. PHLPost has printed 50,000 copies of the stamp to be sold at P12 each. The stamps are now available at the Postshop, Manila Central Post Office in Liwasang Bonifacio.
