Double your money


In August this year, and to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the passing of Father Ray Brennan, the Father Ray Foundation launched a fundraising campaign to construct the Father Ray Center for Children with Special Needs.

The appeal has been a great success, bringing in almost half the construction costs, but there is still a long way to go before the foundation stone can be laid.

Now there is another opportunity to make a donation to the children of Pattaya living with special needs, and every donation you make will now be doubled.

Each year the UK based Thai Children’s Trust takes part in ‘The Big Give’, a charity drive where every donation made on a particular day and starting at a set time is doubled, and this year the money raised will go to the much needed facility for children with special needs here in Pattaya.

Therefore, if you donate £1, this will be doubled to £2, 50 baht becomes 100 baht, $100 becomes $200, and at no charge to the donor; and if that is not good enough, if you are a UK taxpayer then your gift will be worth an extra 25%.

You do not have to be in the UK to donate, but you must donate on the 5th of December, starting at 10am UK time, that is 5pm Thai time.

All you have to do is visit the Thai Children’s Trust website, make a donation and be happy knowing that your money has been doubled.
