In Search of Sanuk started as a small project to introduce friends and coworkers to chances to serve the community. As more people chose to get involved, the focus shifted to challenge and teach people everywhere how to be conduits of change in their communities. By the end of June 2009, In Search of Sanuk will have given away over 100,000 baht ($3,000 US) both to organizations and directly to needy people.
Sanuk is a Thai word roughly translated as fun or enjoyment. Sanuk, however, is much more. This value permeates Thai society giving people a jovial, lighthearted outlook on life. We combine this aspect of Thai culture with our goals to help needy people. To us, sanuk is a lifestyle. This lighthearted outlook naturally translates to those we’re trying to reach and becomes a powerful mechanism of hope and healing for all involved.
