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!

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,

Big Roy
