On 2 February, BAMBI teamed up with the European-themed restaurant Chocolate Ville to host a charity fundraising event to raise funds for Spark Circus Foundation. Spark Circus works with an NGO called Help Without Frontiers which provides support to displaced people along the Mae Sot border that find themselves in emergency situations. Most of whom are children and youth.

We made a contribution of ฿50,000 from the BAMBI charity donations account. Some of the funds were used to set up fun game booths, activity stalls for children such as a football toss game, face painting and applying glitter tattoos from Thanksgiving Home.

BAMBI members received ฿100 of games coupons to enjoy, ate delicious meals and watched the spectacular circus performances, magic shows, and cute hula dance.

Together with Chocolate Ville and Spark Circus, BAMBI raised over ฿150,000 from selling charity tables for the mini bazaar, game coupons and raffle tickets. Prizes including hotel, spa, and restaurant vouchers, were donated by sponsors and the proceeds will go directly to Help Without Frontiers to provide basic needs for the Mae Sot community.

Thank you all for supporting our fundraising event. We will continue to find and support worthy causes in Thailand.
