Catherine Wentworth over at Women Learn Thai wrote an excellent article today on The Set Foundation and the important work they do, The Set Foundation: A Season for Giving Back. This is not only a worthwhile cause but a way for us to give back to the country we love so dearly. Please take a few minutes out of your busy day to visit Women Learn Thai and read about this wonderful charity.
From the Set Foundation website:
The SET Foundation has a very specific aim: to make a difference. That difference is between a youngster being able to study at a vocational college or university, or instead having to labor in the rice paddies, on a Bangkok building site, or in some other mundane, dead-end job.
Now, I know the economy has been bad and many people are still struggling to get by, especially during the holiday season. I am also among the struggling but I am committing to donating the adsense earnings that Thailand Land of Smiles has earned for the month of December to the cause.
My adsense earnings for the month have been down but as it stands I will be able to donate 5000 baht and now I want to challenge you, my readers, to contribute to the cause as well. If you can find it in your hearts to donate even as little as 500 baht ( $15.00 ) that would be awesome and if you don’t have the money, but have a website or blog, if you could spread the word that would be awesome too. If you could do both that would be even more than awesome.
If you have a blog or website and want to spread the word make sure to throw some love Catherine’s way and link to her article on the Set Foundation. If you do make a donation or use your time to spread the word please come back here and let me know in the comments and I will be sure to add your name to this post as well as a link to your blog or website.
A small gift during the holidays will be remembered for a little while but this small donation will be remembered for a lifetime.
