Asset World Foundation for Charity under Asset World Corporation joins forces with The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and business operators in Sathorn district and business partners to launch the "GIVE GREEN CBD: SYNERGY POWER 2020" project for the 8th consecutive year. This year's event continues 'The Power of One' concept to contribute values and benefits to the community, society, environment and the whole nation in a sustainable manner, while integrating Omni-Channel for fundraising to embrace the New Normal lifestyle amidst the ongoing health and safety challenges we face. Starting from December 2020 through to April 2021, the project will consist of three elements – Sathorn District Charity Christmas Tree highlighting the 'One Give One Gift' concept at the end of December 2020, AWC Charity Market Around which is a charity flea market that will launch in March 2021 and the "Pun Fun" project in which scholarships, school stationery and sports equipment will be donated to the youth and children in need in April 2021.
"Asset World Foundation for Charity under Asset World Corporation was established with the main objective to contribute values and benefits to the community, society, environment and the nation in a sustainable and harmonious way," states Wallapa Trisorat, CEO and President, Asset World Corp Public Company Limited or AWC. "This year, the world is faced with challenging situations that have a significant impact on people's lifestyles. We have thus become even more aware of the importance of uniting the power of all sectors to work together in overcoming this challenge and to move forward towards a better future."
"That's why the GIVE GREEN CBD: SYNERGY POWER 2020 project comes with 'The Power of One' concept, reflecting our confidence in the power of collaboration between public and private sectors in Sathorn area in contributing values and benefits for the community, society, environment and the nation in a sustainable manner. No matter how big or small, every contribution leads to making a big difference to the economy, society and environment in Bangkok, as well as Thailand as a whole. We would like to invite everyone to come together to make this year's festive season even more meaningful and valuable. Starting from yourself, simply make a little change to the way you consume goods and food, give gifts and share things with others, as well as celebrating any important occasion in life, which will eventually fuse into a great force that transforms the society and environment, and create a better quality of life for everyone," added Wallapa.
With the current escalating health and safety concerns, the GIVE GREEN CBD: SYNERGY POWER 2020 project integrates Omni-Channel into its donation program to offer touchless interaction and reduce contact between people with interactive features allowing participants to make merit both online and offline via three main activities of the GIVE GREEN CBD: SYNERGY POWER 2020 project:
1. Sathorn District Charity Christmas Tree – The power of extending happiness to shape a better society – a Christmas tree of sharing for a better environment and society invites everyone to make this year's festive celebration more meaningful by extending happiness to the children and youth of schools and communities in need. Featuring the concept of "One Give One Gift", the iconic Christmas tree of Sathorn is created from recycled bioPET bottles to raise public awareness on sustainable solid waste management and the benefits of recycling, while engaging visitors and passers-by in a gift giving activity by scanning the QR code at the Christmas tree to send a message of blessing and encouragement to the children. The more messages sent will amount to more happiness gained by both the sender and receiver.
