Hey everybody, just want to tell you about my project that I started 5 months ago. I started it cause I feel like we(us here in the west living in comfort) often forget what an easy life we have here. We open the fridge and it has food inside,when we're sick we go to the doctor/hospital get treatment and make use of our healthcare,when we open the tap clean water comes out,... At a point is realised this and thought about the ones with less luck and wanted to do something for them.After some research I found Baan Gerda ,an orphanage in Lop Buri that takes care of children infected with HIV or AIDS. They take care of their education, get them the needed medication and offer them a way to a"normal" and happier life with less misery. As I'm just a simple working man and dont have loads of money I started generating money with a group of memebers of our gym giving Muay Thai "shows" and workshops at a Thai event in the city, we got payed a litlle and invested in making T-shirts to resell. This and some other initiatives found place;some fights @ an hip hop batlle, more workshops atThai markets and events across the country, even a Thai dinner @ at our local Thai Temple.My friend and coach at another gym organised a seminair with multiple World Champion Germaine de Randemie to support.It are all relative simple and cheap things to organise and raise some funds and at the same time share our loved sport :-) The first week of november I will travel to Thailand for our holiday and first day of arrival I will go and hand over the funds at Baan Gerda and make a litlle diffirence for them. If anybody has questions ,tips or things to share or even wants to support us feel free to contact me or leave a message on our page : www.facebook.com/muaythai4orphans you can take a look at www.baangerda.org to check them out :-) Thanks for reading Korp koon krab Nick
