Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok and Living Etc. Magazine organise Christmas Tree Charity Project to raise funds to support victims of the floods in Thailand
Bangkok – November 7, 2011 – For the 5th consecutive year, Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok is organising the annual Christmas Tree Charity Project featuring trees designed by local artists and designers displayed in the Hotel’s Parichart Court. In light of the flooding tragedy that has been affecting Thailand over recent weeks, proceeds of this year’s project, organised in association with Livingetc. Magazine, will go to support the work of the Thai Red Cross Society to assist those who have been affected by the floods.
From December 2, 2011 until January 6, 2012, a selection of beautifully adorned Christmas trees decorated by a number of Thailand’s leading interior and fashion designers, architects, and celebrities, and in cooperation with corporate sponsors, will be on display in the Parichart Court at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok. Each tree will have a donation box, and guests and members of the public alike are invited to make a donation to the tree of their choice. All funds donated to the trees will be combined with the generous donations from the participating corporate sponsors, and the total proceeds will be presented to the Thai Red Cross Society to support their works assisting the flood victims.
Showcased artists this year who have volunteered their time, efforts and talents to support the charity cause include Amata Luphaiboon, M.L. Chiratorn Chiraprawat, , Duangrit Bunnag, Pok Kobkongsanti, Praewphan Lauhapongchana, Ravit Terdwong, Rut Pliensuk, Top Pipat Apirakthanakorn, Sirinya Limthongtip, Vasu Virachsilp, Vichada Sitakalin and others.
Participating corporate sponsors that have committed to donate funds through this project to support the flood victims include Almeta, Areeya Property, Cavallino Motors Co,., Ltd., CB Richard Ellis (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Citibank Thailand, D’Rati Co., Ltd., Degree Lighting, Indorama Ventures, L’Occitane (Thailand) Ltd., Lexus, Qatar Airways, Sonite Innovative Surfaces Co, Ltd., Taste & Co., and Toyota Prius.
This year there will be no official launch party for this project; in lieu, those funds will also be donated to the Thai Red Cross Society. Members of the public are invited to come and view the trees through the period of the project, and are encouraged to be generous with their donations to help the thousands of victims of the floods.
