A big thank you from Samui Mala after their very successful day with Spark Circus | Samui Times
  • follow us in feedly

As you know, Spark Circus was on Samui on the 19th January – and it was play time, show time, day time, night time..!
It was really fun- and a great fund-raising day for Samui at Bandara Resort and Spa, Samui – thanks to YOU and the Samui community!!!!

Parachute games – thanks to ISS for the loan of the parachutes and hoops!

We raised over B200,000 in funds for this group of volunteers, with very few expenses thanks to our amazing hosts, and we had a great turnout at this generously sponsored community event.

Money came from cash donations from the community, from an entrance fee for those who stayed for dinner and a show, from a raffle and from the silent auction where people bid on donated vouchers.

We list our donors and supporters below, as well as on the web as well as on Facebook under Samui Mala.
Family time with local children and their parents

Facepainting volunteers joined Khun Kasert of Kaset Art Studio – there was a long patient line of kiddies waiting.
The Spark! volunteers are up in Mae Sot already hard at work spending our money on workshop equipment, art supplies and donation kits for each school they visit. this is a picture from the Mae Sot dump community where the kids look forward so much to Spark’s visit every year!

The night show was on fire – we finished at 8.30 as promised and we hope all the little people got to bed on time!

Spark! supporters, sponsors, helpers, friends:

All these individuals and companies donated time, money, vouchers or support in some way!

We’d like to extend a special thanks our very kind hosts Bandara Resort and Spa, Samui for the venue and for subsidizing the event so generously!
Also to the Chaweng Regent Beach Resort for hosting the performers on Samui.
