Anantara Vacation Club Fundraiser Supports Thai Community
Monday, June 12, 2017
Anantara Vacation Club, Asia’s leading luxury ownership brand for sophisticated travelers, recently announced the conclusion of its donation drive for “The Freedom Story”. The charity helps to educate communities on Thailand’s impoverished youth and strives to help prevent human trafficking.
The fundraiser hosted a series of activities including a Lucky Draw contest at the annual King’s Cup Elephant Polo Tournament by Anantara in Bangkok. The proceeds collected from the company-wide team fundraising efforts will be used to help provide daily transportation and meal costs for the 116 scholarship students that the Freedom Story supports.
“Giving back to our community is an important part of who we are and how we run our business,” said Paul Lim, Director of Corporate Marketing. “This year, we partnered with the Freedom Story to aid them in their efforts to educate Thailand’s youth and prevent human trafficking within the country. As we learned more about their mission, our team members became increasingly inspired to help support their cause.”
Since its inception in 2010, Anantara Vacation Club has contributed to and raised awareness for numerous local and national charities across Thailand, China, and Indonesia. The Freedom Story offers scholarships, mentorship, and resources to Thailand’s youth to encourage them to stay in school and avoid the risk of capture for trafficking.
In seven years, the charity has successfully helped 180 young people stay in school while providing resources to help thousands more through after-school programs, tutoring services, English and Chinese language classes, and other services.
“We have been very pleased to work with Anantara Vacation Club,” said Lisa Winterfeldt, International Liaison at The Freedom Story. “We can tell that the staff are genuinely passionate about the prevention work The Freedom Story does, which allowed us to raise awareness and share our mission with lots of people. We are appreciative of the kindness, work ethic, and positivity with which they continue to promote our work.”
