UK Thai Children's Fund MTV Fund Rasing Charity Show at MTV Studios London



The Buddha’s Face were very pleased last week to organise the raffle at the annual fundraising event of the UK Thai Children’s Fund (http://www.uktcf.org) held at the wonderful MTV studios , overlooking Camden Lock, London.

We had an opportunity to display some of larger Buddha Face wall art panels and decorative items for sale from our recent relaunched website (www.thebuddhasface.co.uk) The star prize was any large Buddha Wall Art on display to be chosen personally by the winner.

In total £350 pounds was raised and we were delighted when the (Thai !) winner chose a Reclining Buddha wall art panel 1.75m x 90cm and also generously donated a further £100 to the charity. It was a great fun filled evening and on the spur of the moment the Buddha’s Face founder Den Hukins decided to have a second raffle prize which was duly won by Andy Pendergast who chose a 1m x 1m Buddha face wall art beautifully decorated in gold leaf. In keeping with the spirit of the night he very generously decided to allow the piece to be sold off on our website and the proceeds donated to the charity. This piece can be found on our homepage.

The music was provided by Demachena a wonderful afro-fusion band and delicious food came from authentic Thai cooks.

Thai Buddhists call donating their time, money or food to monks ‘tam boon’ (literally making good) as part of their Buddhist obligation to ensure that harmonious peace is encouraged and preserved. The Buddha’s Face whose art work and crafts come from two families in Northern Thailand, are carved with respect to Fair Trade principles and ethics are pleased to carry on this tradition.
