The simplest way is to encourage your clients to bring something useful for the Children’s Project. We created a list of much needed material, which can be added to every Thailand itinerary including Elephant Hills. Second hand clothes that are in good condition, basic English books or school stationery can really make a big impact on the lives of some of the less fortunate Thai children.
Either monetary or donations of material, such as camera traps, stationery, school uniforms, gardening equipment etc.
For monetary donations, we can assess what kind of help is needed the most within the project of your choice. For example, if your company is interested in helping Thai elephants, we can contact an elephant hospital to discuss what kind of medical equipment or suppliesare needed to support the domestic elephants treated in the hospital. On the other hand, if your company would like to contribute to wild elephant conservation, we would contact a National Park to see how we can help them to solve human-elephant conflicts by e.g. planting grass or building salt licks for wild elephants
We are more than happy to help where we can with fundraising, e.g. by sponsoring a voucher for an auction to raise money or similar
A great option for continuous support is charging every client a little extra per booking to support a project of your choice (compulsory or voluntarily). One very successful partner of us asks clients for a 10 GBP donation and matches this with own funds, to then transfer a very decent lump sum at the end of every year. Hardly surprising: Every single client has decided to donate so far – and booking numbers have gone up!
