Italian and his Thai wife inundated with donations to “make the south more beautiful”

77kaoded reported that a Thai/Italian couple who have been together for 12 years were inundated with 5 tons of donations after they made an appeal earlier in the year for old cosmetics that people didn’t want. 

Somkhuan, 42 and her husband Grabby, 35, intended for the cosmetics to be used first of all to make-up the faces of people who had died at hospitals in the south. 

This has now been expanded to hand out the cosmetics to poor schools in the region for use in school productions. 

The cosmetics will also help the children learn about make-up techniques. 

Grabby said he loves his wife very much and helps out when he can. He runs a business catering to the foreign community. 

If his wife is busy with the charity work he is more than happy to chip in with the housework. 

The couple have already put in 200,000 baht of their own money so that parcels could be sent free of charge. 

This is now over but the donations continued to pour in meaning they needed to find extra space for the mountain of 200,000 items.
