We have had a great year at Add More Colors and decided to fullfil a long lived dream of giving back. Since October 2016 we have had a representative on site in Cambodia to find a charity organization we can collaborate with. Our aim is to support an orphanage and/or a school and it was important for us that the organization we choose to collaborate was legit and with low overhead costs.
It took almost 1 month of scouting, meetings and research before we found our perfect partner, Green Leaf foundation. They are the charity arm of Green leaf boutique, the world first non profit hotel with funds going towards several charity projects. Among other Green Leaf foundation supports a recycling project, a mobile hospital, a school, an orphanage and a water cleaning project.
Green Leaf boutique is a Canadian owned hotel situated in Siem Reap with over 10 years in operation and a great track record and reputation. Since we started our discussions regarding a collaboration our representative has been visiting and inspecting all their projects with main focus on the 2 we decided to support – the orphanage and one of their school. Its evident to us that this is a great partner and the appreciation and love for this organization is obvious and heartwarming.
Today we went out to their orphanage and held an art workshop for some of their kids. The whole day has been filmed and documented and we´re now editing a movie that will be released next week and used in our upcoming promotion with the aim of gathering as much funds as possible to support the kids.
Here´s a sneak peak of the day and some pictures that shows why Cambodia is called “The land of smiles”.
