Prem International School to hosts 1st annual “Charity Car Boot Sale”

The kids of Hand To Paws will be taking part in the fundraising car boot sale in March.

By Joy Huss
A much-loved tradition originating from the United Kingdom, a “Car Boot Sale” refers to the selling of items from a car’s boot or trunk. Although a small proportion of sellers are professional traders selling goods or handicrafts, most goods are sold by all types of individuals trying to recycle, sell or swap ‘used’ but no longer wanted personal possessions such as clothes, collectibles, furniture, or other household item. Car boot sales are also very popular in parts of Australia, and have a growing presence in Europe and Asia.Prem is hosting its first annual “Charity Car Boot Sale” on Saturday 2 March 2013 (8:30 am – 3:00 pm). Anyone wishing to sell their personal items can register at the Traidhos cashier’s office or Chum Shop. The cost to register a car is 300 baht and a table is 150 baht. All proceeds will go to help four charities in which Prem supports:
Hand to Paw Temple Dog Outreach Program
A Prem Exploria program that cares for the temple dogs in five temples in our surrounding community with vaccinations, sterilizations, medical treatment, emergency care, food and love.
Beans for Dreams
A VSP initiative that raises funds for children from low-income families that attend Nongplaman School so they can take part in a camping trip with our VSP staff.
COSA
Children’s Organization of Southeast Asia - A UNESCO non-profit organization. COSA has two missions. The first is to provide safe shelter, food, education and health care for trafficked children who have been rescued. Secondly, working in the local community, COSA offers education and support to the regional residents, mostly poor and destitute farmers on the creation of sustainable forms of income whereby they will not have the need to desire to sell their children. Prem has been a strong supporter of the COSA branch located in the surrounding village of Baan Nongplaman.
VSSF
Village School Support Fund – A Prem CAS program that raises funds for uniforms, stationery and lunches to support our local community schools.
If you do not have anything to sell come out and do some shopping and find some real bargains! Food and refreshments will be available as well as a bake sale sponsored by Prem students who are working hard to support these charities.
