We Have Passed the 1,000,000 THB Mark !! - by Marco Gorin
While a number of fund raising activities are still in progress we have officially surpassed the ONE MILLION baht mark in our fundraising efforts – this means that over $36,000 USD have already been collected to support young lives at the orphanage this year!
As per originally announced, in the course of this edition of Charity Trek we have worked hard to differentiate and expand on the number of fund raising activities apart from the big trek and climb of Imja Tse this past November.
Our associates in San Diego (USA) raised well over USD 6,000 through a Comedy Show hosted earlier this year.
The Galileo Thailand team has been active with sales of the wonderful book for children " The Story of Baitong & Boon" 1,000 copies of which were donated by an acclaimed Thai writer.
In India we organized a mela where quality clothing was sold for charity (over USD 2,000 were raised then).
The dates for the next visit to the orphanage in Yasothon have now been set for 27 and 28 December 2012. On that day we will be delivering the final total amount raised by cheque along with presents for the children.
We will continue to raise funds up until only a few days from the visit so in case you have not yet extended support this is a good time to consider and reach out to make an even greater difference to the lives of the HIV+ orphans at the Suthasinee Noi-in Foundation.
This can be easily done through the on-line credit card donation gateway accessible through this site (see to the right of this post).
