The SOLD Project

We believe that education is the key to preventing child exploitation. Our mission is to prevent child prostitution through culturally relevant programs for vulnerable children and to share their stories to empower creative, compassionate people to act. Beginning as a documentary, we are now a grassroots non-profit offering scholarship and resources to at-risk children in rural northern Thailand. Our work is two-fold: prevention through education in Thailand and raising global awareness.

We're fully funded!

Thank you! On June 13 we set out to raise the remaining $1,310 needed to provide our Resource Center with consistent access to running water. Before Noon, you'd helped us reach that goal...and you kept on giving!

We ended up exceeding our goal by more than $2,000! As soon as weather conditions permit (Chiang Rai is in the middle of rainy season) we'll complete construction on the water tank, tower, and filter system, and any funds left over will go to help fund our second classroom building (Project #8308—see link below). We can't wait to send you photos when it's all finished!

Thank you for your continued support of our work and mission to prevent child exploitation through education. By providing something as basic as clean running water, you allow us to continue investing in the lives of these children and their families. Together, we're changing the future.

With hope,

Michael Colletto

June 13 only--new gifts matched at 40 percent!

Hi everyone!

This Wednesday, June 13, GlobalGiving is literally giving away money. Every gift you make to The SOLD Project on GlobalGiving will be matched at an incredible 40 percent, up to $1,000 per person, per project!

We're just $1,310 away from our final goal, which means all it takes to finish this project this week is...

  • ONE $1000 gift, or
  • TWO $500 gifts, or
  • FOUR $250 gifts, or
  • TEN $100 gifts

June 13 is a great time to step out and give generously. Whether you can give $10 or $1000, the return on your investment is truly incredible. Matching gifts aside, you're providing more than 120 kids and their families access to consistent clean running water at our facilities.

Thank you for you ongoing support of The SOLD Project's work to prevent the exploitation of children through education!

New milestone! (Plus, your gifts matched at 40%!)

Hi everyone!

This Wednesday, June 13, GlobalGiving is literally giving away money. Every gift you make to The SOLD Project on GlobalGiving will be matched at an incredible 40 percent, up to $1,000 per person, per project! That means:

  • $50 becomes $70
  • $100 becomes $140
  • $250 becomes $350
  • $500 becomes $700
  • $1000 becomes $1,400

We're especially excited because, thanks in large part to a generous one-time gift, we're able to start construction on Phase 1 of our second classroom building! As soon as weather conditions permit (we're in rainy season right now), we'll prepare the land and lay the foundation. From there, we need just $4,300 to fund Phase 2, when we'll start framing and building the exterior walls and roof.

That's why this matching gift opportunity is so exciting. Not only does it significantly increase the financial impact of your gifts, it has the potential to accelerate the construction timeline of this whole project.

June 13 is a great time to step out and give generously. Whether you can give $10 or $1000, the return on your investment is truly incredible. Matching gifts aside, you're giving more than 120 kids the opportunity to learn and grow up to live in freedom.

Thank you for you ongoing support of The SOLD Project's work to prevent the exploitation of children through education!
