German Princess Maja von Hohenzollern, the goodwill ambassador for the Thailand Friends organization, debuted her new jewelry collection “A Princess’s World” with fashion-jewelry distributor On Top at Bangkok’s Impact Arena.

Thailand Friends board members Dirk and Wuttipong Weeber-Arayatumsopon invited new German Ambassador Rolf Schulze to the event and forwarded him a book of Thai fairy tales in German as a welcoming present. “The Siamese Pot of Fairy Tales” is one of the social projects of Thailandfreunde e.V. for underprivileged kids in the kingdom.

Thailand Friends also donated 15 audio books of fairly tales narrated by the princess to children of German Embassy staff.

Saisom Wongsasulak, a representative of HRH Princess Sirindhorn, was also on hand to receive a Thailand Friends donation of 20,000 baht for her project to support HIV-infected orphan girls in Lamphun.

Finally, Schulze and 19 other Thailand Friends’ benefactors received souvenir pins with the emblem of the German princess.

The idea for the jewelry collection arose when On Top sponsored Princess Maja on a former journey to Thailand. She considers the disposal of the jewelry not only as a profitable business but also as a bridge between Europe and Thailand.
