This year's mission is to repair the Hand to Hand Foundations playground, which is in need of some serious safety renovations including leveling and resurfacing the play yard, install child safety guards, renovate the jungle gym, required signage etc. They have also asked for help with building a toilet downstairs for improved child safety. They also have several other items on a wish list from school tables to a much needed oxygen setup for a child in need to toilets at the community center being built etc. The goal is 1M to full fill all the wishes on their wish list with the main objective of the playground renovation costing 420k of that.
This year we thought a Fun Day with the kids would be great way for donors to meet with the kids they will be helping. Margie was on the line with Mark and within a flash Xbungy - Pattaya Bungy Jumphas been kind enough to donate a day where the kids can come out and play and raise much needed funds for their playground.
Hand to Hand is a nonprofit – volunteer based organization helping keep families together. They have a full time preschool program, Saturday program for the older kids, outreach to the local slums and so much more.
