As well, our employees generously donate their time, talent, and money to various nonprofit organizations of their choice, and sometimes with the excitement of funds provided by the company.
In November 2017, and with much excitement and enthusiasm from our Thailand staff, one of Thailand’s leading rock stars, Artiwara “Toon” Khongmalai—who sings for the popular Thai rock band Bodyslam—has been running across Thailand, raising money for hospitals that give care to the poor. This 2,191 km, 55-day run started on November 1 at Betong on the Thai-Malay border, and his destination is the border town of Mae Sai, Thailand’s northernmost point on the Thai-Myanmar border. His pace is impressive, running nearly a marathon every day, and taking only one rest day for every four days on the move.
Toon’s run across the country has uplifted the national mood, tapping into the hopes and anxieties of people from every corner of the country. He is raising money for 11 hospitals, covering every region of the country, from Bangkok to the under-developed Northeast, to the conflict-affected Deep South. The run is generating an avalanche of stories of kindness, unity, and generosity. (some of this article is taken from Asiafoundation.org
