CHIANG MAI/PAI , HERE WE COME!

How time really flies! In about 12 hours, the CGG team of 16 will be heading to Chiang Mai and then Pai to reach our beneficiary school/orphanage Baan Mae Ping. We have geared up so much for this day and it finally arrived. All members are extremely excited for this trip and believe me, our Whatsapp group has so many exchanges in conversation that if anyone missed it, it’ll be like hundreds of unread messages!

We will be setting off early in the morning on Christmas Day and will be shopping for the kids when we arrive in Chiang Mai. I will be reporting as real-time as possible (depending on network availability) for our family and friends who are very excited but at the same time, concern for our safety. While we are all partying tonight and tomorrow on this blessed day, I wish that we are in your prayers for clear skies and safety as we will be traveling up north to a village Pai via some windy mountainous roads.

So keep updated on our Facebook page (http://goo.gl/Qh57PQ) as we will be updating our journey for all of you! Merry Christmas y’all!

If you would like to join us in this years trip, we still have 5 more open spots for people we are genuinely keen to experience doing charity out of city areas. Hurry now, base on first-come-first-serve basis! 🙂

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!

Hugs,
