    Red Dress Run

    Due to the political situation in this Country, and the main sponsors sitting on the Fence, we have decided to postpone the run till things settle down, hopefully we can get this going before songran.

    Thank you all for your comments etc.

    Probably a good idea, however you may also bear in mind that your event is really geared towards those who are interested in running, no matter how much fun you have organised on the sidelines. Good luck

    Anyone who supports fund raising or charity running knows that Red is the traditional colour to use. Even in Bangkok, not many are seen demonstrating in silky red dresses and high heels. its more of a fancy dress run than anything remotely political.

    The colour is the key thing, red. Red is associated with a particular political alliance, it doesnt matter if its a dress, t shirt or cape some Thais will associate that colour with that political alliance.
    Now if a load of westerners are running around in the colour red only a few weeks after a major demonstration where this colour was used some Thais could take offence to this and see it as a show of support for the people who follow that colour, they wont have heard of your charity or whoever is connected with it they will just see a load of people wearing red and make 5 from 2+2.

    Totally correct.

    But, hey - red is the traditional colour for these hash things, so why should they change? Maybe all the Thais should change their perception of red at this politically sensitive time.

    Just choose another colour, ihfcharity, or make it a 'fancy dress run' instead of a red dress one. Would it kill you to bend with the circumstances, just this once?

    Tell them that then, maybe an ad in the newspapers or on TV.. Just change your stance and get more people entering your event and raise more money.

    At the End of the day its THAI children we were raising money for, so if Thai people make it difficult its there own orphans that will suffer. if it was not for expat's and donations from abroad the orphanage would of closed down long ago.

    I agree with you KM, his attitude is not that of a fundraiser.

    Good. Especially if it meant it was no longer needed.

    Question for you "ihf" would it not be a lot better if you were not needed?

    Who decides you are needed?

    You? or the community?

    They are not making it difficult. You are. How hard is it to change the bloomin' dress code? "Hey, guys, it's Little Black Dresses, not red - OK?" Word of mouth, put it on the announcements you've made in media. It's about as easy as cancelling. I really don't understand this insistence on this one colour & your inability to change with the circumstances, I'm afraid.

    I get that. What I don't get is someone promoting and heavily involved in a charity saying this

    rather than being willing to compromise or change for the sake of those they're helping. That's scary.

    actually, this is one of my pet hates, when a charity fundraiser pulls out the "think about the CHILDREN line"

    its as if I was not going to support the charity previously, but if he reminds me that it is for starving african/thai/whateva children then I will surely buckle and given in.

    The whole threads a bit weird. Not understanding the red is an exceedingly sensitive colour in Thailand, plus the attitude tha seems to come across as "we will raise the money how we want, and they should be bloody greatful for it". Bizzare frankly.
