Funds raised from the night will be used to support Hands Across the Water, a charity dedicated to caring for children in need throughout Thailand. Founded by former Forensic Investigator Peter Baines after he witnessed firsthand the devastation and aftermath of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami, the charity was originally created to house 50 orphaned children in Thailand's badly hit Khao Lak region, Hands now provides homes and education to more than 350 children throughout Thailand, whilst continuing to support another 43 through university. The homes managed by Hands are for children that have no other option in life, providing them with a place to be loved, an education, and ultimately when the time comes to leave, a choice for their future.
To fund these homes, Hands runs meaningful trips, such as bike rides and treks in Thailand that are designed to enrich the lives of those who participate as well as the children. Numerous participants have described their experience as a remarkable and unforgettable journey that has helped shape their lives.
Hands also operates a social enterprise to cover all admin costs, which ensures that 100% of every dollar donated or fundraised goes directly to the children and projects in Thailand. So come along to Night of Celebration and prepare for an experience that may change your outlook on life forever.
