PROJECTS: Chiang Mai ToyRide 2008
On Sunday January 6th, hundreds of riders on motorcycles of all types and sizes, laden with toys, games and stuffed animals, will parade through Chiang Mai and then create a massive pile of toys to be given to needy boys, girls and babies. All Chiang Mai motorcyclists are invited to join the event whether their bikes are large or small. No admission charge: just bring along a new toy to warm a needy child’s heart.

The toys will be distributed by Give and Live to about 60 kids from the Pongsawan Community Development Center (CDC) on the day of the ride, then to the Vieng Ping Orphanage in Mae Rim on 12 January, National Chidren's Day in Thailand and later at local hospitals.

Timetable: Sunday January 6th
1. Buy a toy and meet at the Tesco Khamtien parking lot at 10:00 am
2. Motorcycle parade through the city
3. Road ride to Samoeng, those not wishing to ride as far can go directly to Huai Tung Tao Lake
4. Afternoon party at Huai Tung Tao Lake, including food and drink vendors, fun and games and most importantly, a presentation of toys to local needy children with the help of Give and Live.
