I am going to a small orphanage in the Phang Nga region of Thailand next summer to volunteer. All of the children there have been directly affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. I will be helping out the extremely hard-working staff there by giving them some time off while I (and other volunteers) take over with the day-to-day running of the orphanage. I am also doing a TEFL course (Teaching English as a Foreign Language course) so that I can help teach the children english. I am fundraising my way to Thaildand and back so any donations would be so greatfully appreciated. Your money will go towards getting me there, which will benefit the children and staff immensely. I hope to raise even more money to give a healthy donation to the orphanage itself to employ more staff, take the children on more educational trips, buy more school books, clothes etc. A small amount of money to you will be putting a huge smile on the faces of disadvantaged children on the other side of the world so please, give generously!
