I’ve been consumed the last few weeks with hosting the Bangkok Twestival celebration (see Twestival, Fusing Social Media With Global Change for more on this event). Feels great to raise money for charity in conjuction with so many other cities around the world, but YES–it was exhausting.
Here’s a special thank you from Baan Dada orphanage in Sangklaburi, Thailand.
To fundraise in Bangkok we threw a big party with over three hundred attendees. This was the work of over thirty volunteers. Thanks to Mark and Emily from Digital Democracy who made the following video so you could see what the party was like:
The result of our twitter-festival?
A $600 donation to Baan Dada and $600 to Baan Unrak orphanages.
$380 for carbon offsetting.
That’s a total $1572 for good.
There are more cool photos from the party and the orphanages available in the ISOS facebook group.
ISOS relies 100% on the generous donations of our supporters. Even a small donation can go a long ways to make a difference here in Bangkok and throughout Thailand. Make a quick donation through PayPal below or see our Donation page to make a recurring payment. Thank you!
