In partnership with the Mercy Pattaya charity (a Christian-based organization in Pattaya, Thailand), we have been helping feed underprivileged children, handicapped, widowed, elderly, and refugees living over 8,600 miles from MI. By means of large community food distributions and private home visits, The Ivy Table is showing love to the people of Thailand by providing free food to those in need.
Project 2535 is a fundraising initiative to help support our next big food distribution in Pattaya this July. The number 2535 holds a special meaning
It represents the verse that our charity was founded upon (Matthew 25:35 "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in")
It represents the approximate cost in U.S. dollars for each community food distribution ($2535 provides food for about 300 Thai families).
It represents how you can help (a donation of just $25.35 is enough to provide 3 families each with 6 lbs of rice, fresh eggs, and a bag of pantry essentials with cooking oil, fish sauce, canned goods, noodles, etc.)
Please pray about how you may be able to partner with us! Donate as you are able to Project 2535 here.
Thanks as always for your support, and for your willingness to help bless a community of people living half way across the world.
Help us feed the people of Thailand. As a 501(c)(3), all donations to The Ivy Table are tax-deductible with the IRS.
Take an inside look at one of our recent food giveaways in Pattaya, Thailand. Dozens of volunteers spend 3 days shopping, packing, cooking. On the day of distribution, people from the community begin arriving early in the morning for a spot in line. They sit outside on the sidewalk in the 100 degree heat all day long, not wanting to miss their chance to receive a free handout. By early afternoon, hundreds have gathered and the police arrive to help with crowd control. Each person in line receives a bag of rice, fresh eggs, cooking oil, fish sauce, canned fish, noodles, snacks, water bottles, and a hot meal. What a blessing to be the hands and feet of Jesus!
