Braeden in Canada donates 100 Canadian dollars from his savings! 

In a true "Children helping Children" example, young Braeden Sepp (pictured above) sent us 100 Canadian dollars (about Baht 2800) which to save bank charges, was carried from Canada to Chiang Mai by Khun Adisak Tantiworawit M.D.. Although K Adisak had never met us before, he added a similar amount in a gesture of support.

Braeden - you are a little gem of a guy, and a great example to other kids! Khun Adisak - thank you so much for being the caring messenger, taking time off to meet us, and for your sponteneous generosity.

The Amazing Sales Efforts of
Khun Lisa Thomas, and Christoph Leonhard

Many caring friends joined in our sales efforts, and we are grateful to all of them for their enthusiasm and hard work. But special mention must be made of a "Super Sales" duo in Bangkok who managed to sell almost 400 calendars to friends and associates, both in 2008 and in 2009. That's a lot of calendars, and a selling feat of Olympic standards! We couldn't believe it when they kept advising: "almost no stock left - please send some more"  Lisa and Leonhard - you are really wonderful!

Leaping Freely Over the Language Barrier

We know them affectionately as "Sam" and “Za” but if their names are short, there was no end to the kindness and goodwill they showed us in translating our documentation from English into Thai free of charge. What's more, there was not a single word of protest when we requested some "last-minute" assignments which had them working until way past midnight in order to get it finished in time. To you both, and to the other members of staff at in Bangkok, our sincerest thanks. We will always remember what you did for us.
