Ten Thai designers offer gifts for the festive season to raise funds for the sick

The Ramathibodi Foundation gets into gear for the festive season by joining forces with 10 top designers for the second edition of the “Power of Giving”, the annual campaign that brings timely assistance to the sick and underprivileged.
Taking part in this year’s campaign are Greyhound Original, Asava, Disaya, Issue, Kloset, Painkiller, Playhound by Greyhound, Senada, Something Boudoir and Vicketeerut.
Bhanu Inkawat of Greyhound Original, has come up with Eternity Love and Eternity Giving, two heart motifs that signify the never-ending nature of giving. Polpat Asavaprapha of Asava says his design is a “ribbon of happiness”, referring to the art of tying a ribbon on a gift box, which represents love and care. 
Disaya Sorakraikitikul of Disaya has created a sleek design inspired by the art at the Versailles Palace and Cupid, the god of love. Bhubawit Kritpolnara of Issue takes us on a train trip to Malayu where the nature is pure and pristine, creating the power of giving. Mollika Ruangkritya of Kloset says, “We interpreted happiness through flowers, butterflies and ice cream. We want them to be practical items and memorable gifts that the recipients can really make use of.”
Poomsak Teankaprasith, founder of Painkiller, says that last year he designed the “give life give hope” collection for the Ramathibodi Foundation. This year, he changed it to “give love hope” to highlight the importance of giving and loving, which gives hope to the recipient. Jitsing Somboon of Playhound by Greyhound played with the pattern of turquoise, considered a lucky stone that attracts good things. 
Senada's Chanita Preechawitayakul notes that she uses a heart, money, dreams, and crowns as symbols. Romrujee Chuayprasit of Something Boudoir’s concept is the waves of generosity in fun graphics that represent the brand’s character.
Teerut Wongwatanasin of Vickteerut says his keyword is infinity and so he has created lines that go on forever.
Thai people are invited to share happiness with underprivileged patients and support the construction of the Chakri Naruebodindra Medical Institute, Faculty of Medicine, Mahidol University, by purchasing the special gifts priced at Bt999 per set, which are available at the souvenir shop at Ramathibodi Foundation. 
Advance orders can be made until October 15 at www.RamaFoundation.or.th. The products are available through December or while supplies last.
