To celebrate our 10-year anniversary at Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok, COMO Hotels and Resorts is rolling out ‘The Metropolitan 10’: 10 of the best Metropolitan hotel experiences for which you can bid in our online charity auction. Starting October 7th, 2013, two experiences will go under the hammer each fortnight for 10 weeks–and the highest bids win.
Ten per cent of the proceeds raised by the auctions will support Pattanarak Foundation, which helps disadvantaged populations living along Thailand’s national borders. In particular, we are supporting rebuilding efforts in Sangkhlaburi after flooding this year leveled its agricultural resource centre.
COMO has worked with Pattanarak for nine years, partnering with them on social enterprise development, artisanship, food, income security and agricultural training. The centerpiece of Pattanarak’s work is its agricultural resource centre, which includes a working model farm and provides valuable information and resources for over 2000 villagers in Sangkhlaburi.
The rebuilding and restoration of the centre is expected to cost in the region of US$20,000. This includes fixing cement water banks to prevent future flooding, strengthening infrastructure and restocking the centre to allow their agricultural training to continue.
Your bids will contribute to this vital rebuilding work for those who most need our support.
