THE STORY:

Hello everyone! My name is Harry and my goal here is to raise enough money to fund my volunteer trip to Thailand for 6 months in order to support and (hopefully) teach abroad at one of Thailands many orphanages.


To give some background on why I want to do this and the nature of my need to raise this money - When I was 12 years old, a family member was getting married in Thailand to a local who lived in a small town not far from Chang Mai named Hot, so I was invited to the wedding and little did I know would be the greatest experience of my life still up until this day. On my 10 day visit Thailand I experienced the crazy streets of Bangkok, the traditional lifestyle of Chang Mai, and then the true, barebone culture of the great country in Hot. My time spent there was amazing and during the 10 days, we visited a small orphanage set up by a family of Americans who moved over to Thailand in the 70's to support the children there.


Whilst at the orphanage I got to spend time with the children whoa t the time were my age and seeing that their only source of food was rice grown from a field they had set up, I approached the founding member Gregg and gave him the last of my pocket money I had brought along with me for my 10 days (it was not a lot in England, maybe £30-40, but that money was enough food for all 72 of the kids there for a few weeks).


From that experience I knew that this is where my heart really laid, and so I was dedicated to find myself back in Thailand to do more work there, and now my time has come as I have now finished my time in education and cannot wait to get working abroad!


The place I have decided to spend 6 months at is Baan-San Fan, a very established orphanage that take son volunteers to look after and teach the children their many lifer skills and I deeply wish to get evolved with!


The £1250 will cost my initial flight there and back, the rest for food which is extremely cheap over there (£4 a day), accommodation is provided.


I will be greatly happy if I can raise these funds for my journey and I hope I can find some support here! Thank you so much for your time! I really do appreciate it!
