Gift of Happiness Foundation provides..
Positive sustainable development through educational comedy show productions provided by world class professionals and trainee entertainers. We also produce monthly aid giving projects that provide essential supplies to needy families, schools, medical centers and orphaned children in Thailand.
The charity is managed by a team of dedicated volunteers and is not tied to supporting just a few children at only one location. Therefore, this unique organisation has the freedom to provide joy to thousands of children in urban and remote locations throughout the country.
The idea of starting this charity was born in 1992 by British and Swedish born circus performers, Mr & Mrs Eddie & Charlotte Haworth when they were running their UK circus skill training workshops for disadvantaged kids in Liverpool, England.
In the year 2000, Eddie was invited to perform at a charity event held at the British Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. Following that performance and a few more for the slum kids in Bangkok, it was quickly decided to bring more gifts of laughter and educational entertainment to orphans and poor families in Thailand.

What we actually do.
The Foundation regularly gives simple interactive and educational comedy shows to those whose lives quite often contain little joy. We also give away tons of essential goods during our aid giving projects, delivered where it's needed most and at least once every month of the year.
Who we help.
Orphans, vulnerable street children, Bangkok slum dwellers, families living on garbage dumps, AIDS centers and facilities housing physically or mentally challenged children. We regularly serve medical centers, crisis centers for abused women, communities of migrant worker families and people displaced by civil war who live in refugee camps.
What we actually give.
The charity gives children and their family’s basic necessities like clothing, bedding, medical supplies, educational equipment, toys, agricultural tools and tons more useful goods. The children always get to see a top class professional comedy show to leave them with a fantastic memory that no-one can ever steel from them!
