A friend and I treated a local orphange here in Udon to a Ice Cream party today. Teribbly expensive 350 baht each.

Couldn't buy the smiles in a miliion years, trust me we got much then we gave.

These kids were very polite and overall seemed to be healthy and happy. I think we interupted thier chores for the day so maybe that was why they were happy LOL

There's hope. Great post Ray. The feeling of helping someone or making someone happy can't be beat.

Good one ray,

They say that one random act of kindness per day is good for your soul. i am not saying your kind act was random but just as good for the soul

Ray,

That is such a nice thing to do. How did you set that up? Did you just contact the director of the orphange? My wife has talked about doing something like that, but does not know how to go about doing it.

Ray,

That is such a nice thing to do. How did you set that up? Did you just contact the director of the orphange? My wife has talked about doing something like that, but does not know how to go about doing it.

A friend had sent to the local girls orphanage and I decided to join him we talked to the administrator in This case I beleive his name was koon Supat. Asked waht we could and could not do. Hi sugggsetion wa start by bringing a treat for the kids ion a Saturday or Sunday. They are really very busy with school through the week.

It was such a rewarding experience I will probably try to get out there a coupple of hours a week.

The next thing I'm working on is a field trip for as many as I can. The VFW has it's fourth of July party here in Udon every year. So I will purchase twenty tickets, the facility will provide supervision, still haven't figured out transportation yet, that depends on how mmany tickets I can come up with.

Truth is the VFW would probably pop for the tickests, but this is thier big fund raiser that is normally used to put together a Christmas party each year. That party is free to all of Udon, so I just don't think it is right to ask them.

That Christmas party is a big deal, along wiht food each child gets a gift wrapped present and sees Sanat Clause many for the first time. So they really need thier funding for that one along with most guys chipping in baht for presents around that time of year.

There are proably many things that can be done individually on the horizon but you have to go slowly, they have to get to know you. I'm happy to say they are very protective of the kids.

The wife is popping for cunnum next weekend when we visit. I think the kids get a o lot of joy out of jusrt having something change thier day a bit. It reminds me of my village rides, just something different happening brightens the day. Of course it adds something to my day as well :o

I'm really leanring at this point about what I can do.
