It’s my pleasure to be working with Aprilbr to organize the Ladyboy Party and Charity Week this year. I’m confident it will be a fun week and that we will be able to raise a significant amount of money for charity. Our goal is to raise 200,000 Baht.
While the specific charities have not yet been chosen, we do believe that all of the money raised should be donated to organizations or efforts that work to prevent and treat sexually transmitted diseases, and/or towards efforts that will benefit transgender people in Thailand in a meaningful way. We will announce the specific organizations in the coming months.
With the sponsorship fees that have been promised by the participating bars thus far, we will raise 75,000 Baht.
Here is a breakdown:
Why Not Bar - 5,000
Check-In Bar - 5,000
TJ’s Music Bar - 10,000
69 Bar - 10,000
Surprise Yourself 10,000
Katoeys ‘Are’ Us 25,000
The Roof 10,000
TOTAL 75,000 Baht
In addition to the sponsorship pledges, which will be collected two months before the party week, the sponsoring bars have agreed to make at least a modest effort to raise additional money during their parties through donation boxes or any other means they choose.
With the pledges received by BMs on the Pattaya Ladyboy Forum, we already have 120,000 Baht pledged. We will need board members to step up and make individual pledges to reach our goal. Aprilbr will keep a record of individual pledges made by BMs here on this thread. Or if you prefer, send either one of us a PM and will make a note of your pledge. We promise not to pester, harass, annoy or browbeat you.
We will arrange a date and place to collect pledges from board members in Pattaya during the week of festivities, and receipts will be issued. We can also make arrangements to receive donations from BMs who wish to submit them via PayPal if necessary.
Thanks for your support guys. The goal for the Ladyboy Party and Charity Week next November is to have fun and raise some money for charity. Pledge whatever you are comfortable with.
