One of our service learning partners, Central Thailand Mission, is bringing TRULY ORGANIC HOM MALI (Jasmine) RICE to Bangkok to sell from their partner in Mae Sot with proceeds going to help families in crisis & women at risk amongst the migrant community. Read below a message from Central Thailand Mission:
Get Organic, live healthy while helping a great cause -- TRULY ORGANIC HOM MALI (Jasmine) RICE Available -- I work to connect the needs of disadvantaged communities with the resources of corporate and individual sponsors. One of our project partners in MAE SOT, Tak province - teaches and practices natural rice-farming which also incorporates restoring the land and providing value-added skills to Karen migrants. They aren't usually able to sell in Bangkok because of the logistics but next week, we will be renting a truck to bring up donated goods to MaeSot and when it returns to Bangkok, we will be able to bring down some of their organic rice for anyone who wants to order this.. They are selling the organic rice for 110 baht a kilo & 500 baht for 5kg. The proceeds of your purchase will go towards the farming project which helps families in crisis & women at risk amongst the migrant community -- plus it will also help us cover the cost of renting the truck for this round trip to bring the donated supplies up there.
