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.
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.
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.
