Two Philippine Presidents on PCSO stamp

The latest Philippine stamp issue featuring the 75th anniversary of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) shows two Philippine presidents.

This is the second time that two presidents are shown together in a stamp. The first was the issue released on June 12, 1992 that featured President Corazon Aquino and President Fidel Ramos.

The December 18, 2009 PCSO stamp features President Manuel Quezon and President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. This is another welcome addition to those who collect Philippine Presidents on stamps.

Since 1934, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office has "lived up to the challenge of its mandated mission and purpose and has remained unwavering in carrying out its vision of uplifting the quality of life of the Filipino people. The agency has well established itself as a model government institution with its unquestioned dedication to serve the disadvantaged sectors of society. With these, the PCSO has developed a strong credence and incontestable acceptance from Filipinos who have all come to believe and get comfort on the fact that the PCSO will always be there for them, as long as needs need to be satisfied and hopes and dreams need to be given life and fulfilment."
