PROJECT CHIANG MAI 2013 UPDATES 3

Hey y’all,

Sorry for not updating sooner as I was awfully swarmed with my big move inter-city within China and finally able to catch some breath over the weekend to work on posting this update.

From our last update, we are already filled for this year’s charity trip to Northern Thailand. So this year we have a total of 16 members heading up to bring joy and fun to the 160+ kids of Baan Mae Ping! This is definitely a record for CGG since we started 5 years ago! Awesome!

While we are organizing our activities up there as well as logistical matters, we are also planning for our fund raising event which will be announced in our next post. We would like to thank our friends and colleagues for some donations coming in every now and then and we will definitely acknowledge and list them down after our trip.

So check out our next post and we really hope to see you at the fund raising event!

With gratitude,

Big Roy

PROJECT CHIANG MAI 2013 UPDATES 2

Hey folks!

Just some updates following from our previous update for this year’s trip to Chiang Mai.

Participants:

We have a total of 13 participants signed up for this trip! Now we are left with only 3 slots for any one of you who are still contemplating in joining us! Email us at cggsingapore@gmail.com to register your interest!

Donations:

We have received some donations from our friends and colleagues these couple of weeks. Similar to our members who commit their leave days and own funds for our annual trips to bring joy and hope to the less fortunate kids, we too have a bunch of friends, family and colleagues who are there supporting us yearly for our projects. Some were skeptical at first but when they see the stuff that CGG does and the appropriate usage of the donated funds, they have more confidence that these monies get to the hands of the needy. Kudos to all our donors in the past years and years to come!

Fund Raising:

We are in the midst of planning our fund raising Coffee Appreciation Cum Latte Art event on the 14th December 2013, Saturday. There will be 2 sessions;  morning and afternoon. Details will be out soon sometime this month. Lock in the date first if you’re keen ‘cos we have also locked in that date for the event. 🙂

Will update again soon, take care y’all!

With gratitude,

Please refer to our previous blog post (http://wp.me/pE63z-a4), we are still looking for sponsors for the items listed. Regardless your donation amount, every bit will help us help the unfortunate kids during our trips. If you can gather some friends, colleagues or family members to sponsor the larger ticket items, it’ll be awesome! And as per all our annual trips, we’ll list out all our donors on this website to recognize them for their selfless contributions so that our trips can be more meaningful to the beneficiaries!

Looking forward to hearing from all of you soon!
