WHAT IS BOON²

Watch our explainer video here : https://youtu.be/vpff-B7QdvE

Boon² is a new philanthropy initiative that aims to make donating fun.
It provides a fresh infrastructure to young philanthropists but also creates a sustainable movement for grassroots NGOs.
Based on a live crowdfunding, the concept brings together a charities pitching contest and a young professionals networking party.
Each edition features a pitch from 3 charities followed by an interview from the MC and a Q&A session with the audience. Participants pre-donate a minimum amount on Weeboon.com prior to the event, receive a token (charity voucher) in return and use it at the event, right after the pitches, to decide which charity their donation will support.
Event ends with a closing networking cocktail involving all the parties.

Charities receive 100% of the funds raised minus a 5% project fee to Weeboon to cover admin and overhead costs.

Operation Smile Thailand
Operation Smile Thailand provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities for children throughout the country.
Operation Smile Thailand has worked hard to promote self-sustainability by recruiting highly qualified Thai medical professionals. By doing so it has allowed Operation Smile Thailand to conduct an average of 10 surgical missions per year. In the last few years Operation Smile Thailand has performed more than 7,000 free surgeries for children in the Kingdom of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.

Dreamlopment : The Migrant Fund (M-Fund)
Dreamlopments has launched the M-FUND, a low-cost not-for-profit health insurance for migrants in Thailand, to empower this underserved population to self-establish sustainable access to quality health care services. We ultimately aim to extend this service to other migrants and underserved communities in Asia, and create a regional cross-protection scheme of health access and development.

Peace And Happiness Foundation
Peace And Happiness Foundation is a non-profit organization set up to provide free international standard bi-lingual education for the poor and under-privileged children of Thailand in order to help them grow up happy and become quality world citizens.
