NORTHERN THAILAND TRIP
Planning this for Nov/Dec 2011, about 10 days to do reforestation projects, help build a school dining room at a Karen village about 6 hours from Chiangmai. Also to visit Elephant Nature Park, Prosthesis Foundation, Golden Triangle, trekking/rafting and some free time to explore beautiful Chiangmai.
Prices being worked out, only 10 places available for this trip. If you’re interested in a volunteering vacation, please email me. As the prices are being worked out, there will be no obligations on your part, if you email your interest, please be serious about this trip.
ALUMINIUM CAN TABS
Many of you are aware that for the last few years the Green Volunteers have been collecting can tabs for the Prosthesis Foundation in Chiangmai. We are now taking our project one step further and intend to use these can tabs to make into walking sticks. These walking sticks will be given away FREE to old folks home, the elderly both in Singapore & the ASEAN region and areas that need them (conflict and natural disaster areas). We are working out details and looking for a sponsor (if you have any idea of possible sponsors please let me know). You can also help by starting to collect can tabs at your office/schools but you will have to keep them for us until we need them.
Here’s your chance to do something simple to help the less fortunate.
TERRARIUM MAKING CLASSES
We have plans to conduct these classes soon (on a Saturday afternoon) price being worked out, if you are interested in this, please email.
SCHOOL/COMPANY TALKS AVAILABLE
Want to learn more about our environmental/global warming or the volunteer work or projects that the Green Volunteers do? I am available to give these talks/presentation. There will be a $50 charge to offset transport and other expenses. Email if your company or school needs this talk.
