Coins on Silom
Coins on Silom is an annual, high-profile fundraising event held by The Rotary Club of Bangkok South along a section of Silom Road. During this unique day-long event, a broad strip of 3M red cloth tape is laid along the sidewalk on both sides of Silom Road and stands are prominently placed to display sponsor logos. Rotarians and other volunteers accept donations from the general public and each donor is invited to place a symbolic ‘coin’ (actually a sticker), bearing the logo of one of our platinum sponsors, on the tape to symbolize their contribution.
Local celebrities help open the event and provide entertainment in front of CP Tower. Each year thousands of people from all walks of life take a few moments to contribute and help those in need.
3M Thailand has been the event sponsor for Coins on Silom for many years, contributing the red cloth and self-adhesive tape that is placed along Silom Road. Funds come from:
- Donations from the public on the day.
- Donations deposited into elephant money boxes distributed around Bangkok.
- Other donations by members, colleagues, friends and acquaintances.
Each year Coins on Silom raises well over 1 million Baht, all of which goes directly to our charity projects.
Sponsorship packages are set at various levels.
