|Talking about the upcoming party with some of the boys at Hauy Phong|
A few days ago I made a pitch for donations to the Pattaya Street Kids Project's holiday party at the Hauy Phong Children's Home.
|Some of the approximately 400 boys (and girls, on the other side of the road) who would appreciate your help|
Although the party is coming up soon there's still time to make a donation. For the relatively insignificant sum of $4US / 2.5GBP / 120 Baht you can defray the cost of one child for this yearly event. I don't smoke and I don't know what they cost where you live, but that's less than a pack of cigarettes here in the US - and it's a far better use of the cash. These are children who haven't much more than the clothes on their backs, and they really put their hearts into this day-long event.

You can make donations in a number of ways (see their site HERE) but I've always found PayPal to be the easiest.
The photos today were taken when I was last at the home a couple of days before one of these parties. I just noticed today that while I was taking the photo below of the boy sweeping up leaves Don was taking a photo of two boys who - as of today - are smiling out at you on the PSKSP home page. Just an interesting coincidence I thought worth pointing out.
Give a thought to donating, folks. Note on your donation that you'd like the money to go to the Hauy Phong holiday party, and that's where it will go. 100% of it.
