What we do.
Gift of Happiness Foundation provides simple, interactive and educational comedy shows to thousands of children whose lives quite often contain little joy. The Foundation also gives children and their families tons of essential goods during our aid giving projects given at least once every month of the year.
Who we help.
Orphanages, Crisis Centres for women and street children, Bangkok slums, AIDS centres and homes/schools for physically & mentally challenged children. We also serve medical centres, communities of migrant workers, their families and people displaced by civil war who are living in refugee camps and garbage dumps.
"We deliver the goods".
Since 2005, the Foundation has given hundreds of performances and more than 500 truck-loads of gifts such as clothing, toys, educational equipment, school uniforms and medical supplies. Those goods are donated by International Schools, Social Groups, Rotary Clubs and families living in Bangkok, Australia, UK, Europe, USA and S.E. Asia.
Provide sustainable happiness.
"Happy children become confident children"
Positive experiences like having a good old-fashioned laugh helps children living in difficult circumstances to cope and gives them a positive memory that will always belong to them.
Seeing and interacting in educational comedy helps children to use their senses and minds to explore and make sense of what they see, feel and experience in the world around them. These simple lessons on how to think 'out of the box' have been shown to help children find new and positive ways to turn a bad situation into a good one. Lessons on how to be happy also help develop positive dispositions and attitudes towards learning many other life skills needed to overcome some of the difficult tasks ahead.
Administer the medicine of laughter.
