Extra-Ordinary Heroes

Be Inspired and Be Motivated!

Welcome to MY RANGGO’s Hospitality Heroes.

MY RANGGO noticed how many people we come across in our industry who are doing so much good work in their businesses or communities and we thought it would be great to acknowledge these Heroes.

We know how much the Hospitality Industry contributes to our society on the frontline of services, but often we do not realize the lengths that the hotel we just stayed at goes to be a good member of the community, or the volunteering the waiter who just served your lunch does in his barangay.

We believe these unsung heroes deserve some recognition and we hope they will serve as inspiration too!

Enjoy their stories and let us know if you are a local hero, or know one, or if these heroes inspire you to also act.
