        Kids, nothing religion related. Went to a Muay Thai match recently at 1 am in Bkk, there were three Thai monks betting on the matches, and taking the cash out of donation envelopes. looked like boss monks too, disgusting.

          Brian with all due respect, it would be hard to find a children's charity or donating process in Thailand that is not connected to a religion.
          Know exactly what you witnessed though
          Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

            If that is the case the money could be filtered off. would it not be possible to buy the kids books or the like,
            That have little or no commercial value. Just a thought.

                Plenty of kids charities here that are not connected to religion, went to one in klong toey the other week, there seems to be some foundation or other all over the place there. One that is related to religion I trust is baan nok khamin. Orphans again and sad to say quite a few half falangs and half black kids, mainly a result of the sex industry I was told.

                    They were still doing that last weekend in Prapadeang Bkk last Sunday! Apparently the Mon people there hold it two weeks later.

                      Lee, apologies for going off thread.

                      Can I suggest to everyone this thread is for nominations only and not for a discussion about religion connected to charity that could be discussed elsewhere.
