On July 18th, 2010 Isara Foundation was featured on the popular Thai TV show, "I Love Thailand" or ฉันรักเมืองไทย . For two days the TV crew followed Kirk and our Isara volunteers around Nong Khai as we did various charity projects.
The version below is not very clear so we'll have to upload a better version once the TV station sends us a DVD. Also, it's all in Thai but you can probably figure out what we're talking about by the crazy sound effects they've added. lol
The response to the show has been overwhelming. We've already received some new Thai sponsors and a lot more students have come by to want to learn English and also volunteer.

It took two hours to squeeze all of them in since I'm at work :D but I enjoyed all of it! I even got teary eyed during the second clip and I don't have a clue what she was saying! ;D

;D I loved all the videos. I'd really like to know what one of the volunteers was saying that made her cry.
Kirk, you're a natural! It looks like you had a lot of fun explaining Isara's mission to help the less fortunate. The tv show covered so many of Isara's projects and goals. Great job! We are so proud of Isara! :D Loved seeing the students and volunteers teaching. :D

Who is that man in the blue shirt? ??? It is not Kirk! First, he was living at the condo, and then he was eating real Thai food. The only Thai food I have ever seen Kirk eat are fried spring rolls. Imposter! :o ;)
I have only seen the first one, and the editting and the way the Kirk and the Host communicated was very nice. Great job to the producers and to Kirk. Oh and I saw Ming too, I guess that is what made it so good. ;) ;D
