Giving back in Southeast Asia

Posted by somtam2000 on 30/1/2013 at 22:15 admin

Just a small announcement, we've added a new section to the Feature Stories section of the site titled "Giving back in Southeast Asia".

What is happening is every month a writer selects a charity or non-government organisation that they believe does excellent work on their patch in Southeast Asia. They write about them and we donate $100, a small way for us to give something back to the region. If you're looking to give back too, please consider giving a little cash as well.

The first story regards a charity that is working to assist Siem Reap's rubbish dump families and we encourage you to read the story in full.

We realise $100 is just a small amount in the scheme of things, but we hope that by profiling one charity a month we'll give that organisation some much needed publicity (and perhaps encourage some readers to contribute) and, more generally raise awareness about the plight of those in need in Southeast Asia.

Good one. I'll look forward to a different story each month.
