53,950 baht was raised for charity just last night from the bar donating it's revenue. Tonight all the winners have donated 50% of their prize money as well. Another 20,000b. And its not done yet - the collection box in the bar has not yet been opened. It will be this week with an independent set of eyes to oversee. That will then be added and kept open for a further month. One bar is aiming to raise 100,000b for a orphanage focused on HIV infected babies in Nontaburi outside BKK. The same charity the street bar raised some 30,000b + for last year.
I really do wonder at some of the comments made by some BM's about fundraising. Step up or shut up is my view. Thus far I do not see either coming from some vocal supposed 'experts' on the scene.
