Chonnipa (Tal) Promlerd, 28, who works at BISP, will be joined by a group of her friends as they take part in the “Give Out Valentines Project”.
The event also took place last year, and she said, “I used to donate dog food, around 20 kilograms, but it wasn’t enough for the dogs. So I thought of an idea to make something to sell instead.
“There are benefits from buying food. I know we can help others in various ways, but I choose the thing that I’m an expert at. Handicrafts.
“I believe that by sharing, we can spread happiness. So that’s why I decided to do this.” Funds raised will go towards the weekly “Give Out Park” event, which hosts fun activities and giveaways for children every Saturday at Phuket Provincial Community Hall.
Funds will also go towards food for homeless dogs at the Phuket dog pound in Bang Kanun.
“We expect to sell around 300 hearts. They cost B49 each. If I can sell 250 heart handicrafts, then it’s good news for dogs on Valentine’s Day.”
