Let’s build these kids a house!

Update posted by Kaz Crossley On Dec 25, 2021

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I am so excited to share that the house is nearly complete! It's been a roller coaster to say the least, but things are finally coming together. We hit a few bumps along the way, but thanks to an incredible effort by Boom, the house will be completed next month.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! I'll write a proper update in the new year.

Love you all!

Thanks to a generous £10k donation from WOW Hydrate (a brand I am very proud to be associated with♥️) we have hit the target and raised a massive £85,000!!!! This has all gone to building a new gym and home community for the kids at Wor. Watthana in Isaan, Thailand.

When I first met Frances and Boom, they were driving for hours a day to pick up the kids from their schools to take them to train in the gym they had built in another district. And then after training they would drive all the kids that didn't live with them home! They were living out a tiny apartment and looking after so many kids who needed help as their parents had died or work in factory’s far from home.Their daughter (Sita) was sleeping on the floor of their bedroom to make space for other kids. They showed me the empty plot of land which they had bought hoping one day to build a house and gym there. They just needed a bit of help!

I can proudly say the money you guys have donated is building them a two-story-six-bedroom house and brand new gym! The new gym (which is finished) is right next door to the house and in the area where all their schools are.

COVID has hit Thailand extremely hard and currently all the children are out of education as they have been converted into covid hospitals. This means Frances and Boom are putting in extra hours home schooling the children and giving them the best possible life ♥️ they are truly an inspiration and I couldn’t think of any one who doesn’t deserve this more than them! Thank you, Frances & Boom, for dedicating your lives to these children! (I’ve started crying now lol)

This community will be the future for these kids and the many generations after them. It’s permanent and sustainable giving these kids opportunity to rise above the poverty they were born into and better their lives!

A massive shoutout to Green Life Global Ventures, our proud new sponsor 🍀 We couldn’t of done this without you! Big announcement to also be revealed soon! Also a big thank you to Orfano, MUSE The Foundation and Styleout Watches for your generous donations.

And finally, THANK YOU to every single person who donated, shared and supported my fundraiser. This post is dedicated to you🙏🏼♥️

I'll keep you guys posted on my stories as the house is being build.

Hi guys!

I’m so excited to share all of the progress over at Wor. Watthana with you! So first off, the gym is now complete and the kids are training there every day. Since I left, three new kids have joined the gym and for all three of them, it is their very first time training in a ring.

As for the house, it is progressing way ahead of schedule. The second floor is complete and the roof is raised! I can’t even imagine what lessons the kids are learning from what they are seeing every day at the gym. It’s so inspiring, thank you guys so much! In the middle of all this uncertainty and chaos, we’re literally building these kids a permanent place to call home!

We are so close to reaching our goal! As I mentioned in the previous update, the reason I increased my target is that I want each of the kids to have their own bed and dresser. Plus, they need a table big enough for all of them! Right now, the majority of what they are using belongs to their landlord. There isn’t even enough room for them to all sit at the table so some of the kids have to stand while they eat. So let’s furnish this house together!

Thank you guys so much!

Lots of love!

Hey guys!

I am so overwhelmed by all of your support! This is so incredible! WE HAVE STARTED BUILDING!!! Thanks to you guys and all your donations!!!! Frances and Boom are blown away and cannot believe this is all really happening. We have attached a 3D design of the house for you all to see, this is where your money is going!

After many conversations with different contractors, we have chosen one that we love. Even though this is Thailand, we have realised that to do this properly, it is not going to be cheap. To build a house big enough for everyone is much more than they had expected. So many extra costs have popped up like getting the right permits and working with local engineers.

Therefore I have decided to continue this fundraiser to keep helping them with all the extra costs once the house is built, including furnishing the house, kitchen appliances, building a well and adding a chicken coop.

Unfortunately we have discovered the new land is not connected to a water supply at all and that the local government is unwilling to do this. So we need to build a well, with water storage tanks. We will also set up an area to collect and store rainwater. This will help them cut down on costs and can be used in emergencies.

Another addition I want to build them a chicken coop so that they can have fresh eggs everyday. One thing I realized during my time there was how much these kids eat and how far Frances and Boom go to provide for their every need. This also helps with making it sustainable as they will have their own supply of eggs!

In terms of furnishing the house, a lot of what they are using now belongs to their landlord. I want to provide these kids with everything they deserve, however to us these are just basic things that we take for granted. I would love each kid to have their own comfy bed and dresser (some are sleeping on the floor), table and chairs for homework (also they lie on the floor), and a big comfy couch!

They are honestly the most amazing kids and deserve this so much. Please help me, help them <3

Most importantly, THANK YOU again. From the bottom of my heart, every person who has donated, even if it’ £1, every little helps and you are literally changing these kids lives forever!!!! I will continue to keep everyone updated on the progress of the house and I hope you are excited as I am to watch this project come to life!

We love you
