We’re in the second month of the Helping Other People Project! This month is a rather calm month, mainly meaning we won’t have any days where we go out and do something, though we will continue going to Rak Teh on the third Saturday of each month. (Unfortunately though, Brodie had a visa run, and everyone else got sick this months Rak Teh, we’re all okay now and hope to go next month and the months after.)
This months challenge! – Find the clothes and items that you don’t use, but that are still usable, and donate them to a place that needs them and will give them a purpose again. You can even get your friends in on it!
If you’re in Bangkok, and don’t know where to give your items. You can donate them yourself to one of the below places, or you can contact us at email@example.com or message us here, and we’ll find a way to receive your donations, and give them to one of the below places.
The items should be things that are still nice enough to wear/use. Ex: not torn, not covered in paint or mud stains, clean, not broken, etc,.
If you’re not sure about giving something away, you can put it in a pile for the rest of the month, and see if you use it. If you use it, and feel like you won’t continue to use it, then give it to someone who needs it more.
What do we have so far?
We have collected clothes for men, women, and kids, as well as stationary items, books, and toys. All of it has been sorted into different categories and is waiting to be taken to its new owners.
Where is the stuff going to?
NightLight International will receive women’s clothes. NightLight helps the women in the sex industry by teaching them how to do different tasks, providing shelter, and helping supply jobs.
An organization that has asked to be unnamed because of the safety of the kids that they work with, but that we have been working in close relation with for a few months will receive toys. This organization provides a place for kids from the slum areas to come and play and learn English, and learn about God.
Second Chance Bangkok will receive items that aren’t nice enough to be worn, but can still be re-used. They employ women by having them take scrap fabric and items, and turn them into something that can be sold and re-purposed.
School supplies and stationary items will go to smaller schools that are struggling to provide stuff for the students.
Sorry for the delay in posting, not my best move. Let us know if you have any questions.
Matthew 22 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
