We are long overdue a company effort to raise donations for a local charity. Many of us donate privately and support various charities, we also support many charity events as a company (city hall and police ask us often, mostly children’s stuff).
We have chosen the Boon Choo Special Needs center near Sattahip who have many children and adults in their care with special needs. They need clothes, food and cash. They have a “live in” home around the corner and a day shelter with a school attached to it, also a mini work area.
We have spoken to them and they do not have any donation boxes, so we got 30 of them made up, labelled them and they will have the keys to empty and do a count if needed.
If anyone wants to join us, we can get more donation boxes made!
We will have a donation box in each of our bars. If you are not a bar person, you are more than welcome to pop in and drop some money in the box anyway.
We have a “Top Donators” board in each bar and we will try and get the bars competing to see who can generate the most donations (just for some fun). We will give a prize of some sort to each top donator in each bar that the company will pay for.
We have suggested to managers they give a free something or T-shirt, they can be creative but there will be a minimum donation for a tshirt/gift. I will update later if we get problems.
We will update our thread with ideas and there should be some parties coming up also.
I have done this thread just to let people know the boxes are out there and we are starting to raise the funds for this awesome cause..
Any practical suggestions, or anyone willing to pledge a certain amount for something special or funny, you are welcome to message me! Perhaps there will be a lot of cross-dressing going on soon to raise donations lol
The donation boxes are in our bars listed below
