Packing Love to the Needy

Sorting the Blankets
Sorting the Blankets

During the Pre-Christmas season, after the exhibition that the Foundation had put up in November, not much responses came in, but nearing Christmas, donations started pouring  in as our local network sent out urgent messages for the need as the temperature around the country decreased .

Together with the donations collected via the Global Giving connection, a total of 140 Blankets were collected, bought, sorted, packed, and sent to those in the North and North-Eastern Thailand, namely in Chiangdao,  Samerng, RoiEt and Sisaket.

The Foundation would like to take this opportunity to thank all who have donated generously towards this project, thus enabling 140 underprivileged persons including the children and the elderly keep warm with the Blankets of Love!

Any suggestions and feedbacks are most welcomed, as we continue this project for the year 2011.

LEADERSHIP TRAINING FOR YOUTHS

"Shining Together" emphasizing teamwork
"Shining Together" emphasizing teamwork

This year’s leadership training for youths was on the Theme of “Together We Can” from 12-15 October. The campers were sub-divided into 3 groups to cater specifically to the Girls of primary school-age, Girls of secondary school-age and the Boys, so that they would receive training appropriate to their genders and age group. Topics aimed at adding value in a wholistic fashion, e.g. in their physical, emotional, intellectual and social aspects were employed. About 300 campers from the local communities in Bangkok and upcountry provinces like Khon Kaen, Chonburi, Chiangrai, Chiangmai, Rayong,etc. gathered to better themselves in skills like teamwork using activities like ‘Shining Together’ to learn about social responsibilities, leading small groups, management and planning principles, handicrafts, adventure events like forest trekking, tenting and outdoor cooking, and last but not least, they were taught in how to keep up their good performance by learning the habit of “Sharpening their Saws”.

Meow, a teenager from Wiang Papao district in Chiangrai (northern Thailand) said,"I have never ever enjoyed any activity more than the "Shining Together" game that we played tonight. I learnt the invaluable lesson that we all need to work as a team and look out for each other"

Kong another camper from Chonburi recalled the time when all the boys in the camp helped the public water works vehicle that got really stuck in the mud after refilling the campgrounds water tanks, saying, "I am really impressed that when all of us guys put our hearts, minds and strength together, we can get that huge truck out of the mud. I believe that really, Together We CAN!"

Indeed, this year's camp was a Character Building event - as it was a year when it rained everyday at camp, YET, all outdoor activities that was planned for was carried out during times of intermitten sunshine. All campers were thankful as they gained tenacity in their attitudes and learnt to remain of good cheer despite facing obstacles in their way. On top of it all, when the camp was over and all campers went their various ways back to the provinces from which they came, it rained so hard around the campsite, that there was a metre-high flood on the main Highway, due to the run-off from the surrounding hills. Had we delayed a day, we would have been stranded with no way out of the campsite. It was certainly a camp to remember for years to come!

The Foundation is ever mindful of the challenges facing all of us and we are grateful for your support towards our work to instill the character of integrity and tenacity into the youths of tomorrow, so that they may carry on the good works that you have ignited in their lives.

Thank you from our hearts and may you and your families have a Blessed and Fruitful New Year in 2011!

Any suggestions or feedback regarding our project is most welcome.

Setting up Booths for Blanket Donations

Generous Donors

The Foundation was determined to collect as much donations as possible, so as to distribute planned blankets for those who were about to face the cold season in the north. So when the opportunity came for her to set up booth in the Central World (the former World Trade Centre in Bangkok), she seized the moment.

On 21 November, which was the onset of the "winter season" in Thailand, it was forecast to be a dry and cool day, and the booth stand was set up by 4pm out in the open area, to catch the after-work crowd, during the pre-Christmas period.

Donation boxes, photographs and displays were put up to catch the attention of the passing crowd, and volunteers also came after work to help out. What was unexpected was the sudden downpour that drenched all the exhibits, but not the spirits of the staff and volunteers, who continued to attract the attention of passers-by.

By the end of the night, at about 9pm, a total of 5 blankets were collected! But we believed that more will come in by Christmas time.

Thanks you for your support, as we are encouraged each time  we see an increase in the giving by the generous hearts like yours.
