Giving Back to the Koh Samui Community

3rd February 2017

As visitors of the island, we love to indulge in the delightful tastes of the surrounding restaurants. We marvel at the meals created for us, but our conversation ends with the last bite on our plate. We see a place that promotes recycling and we think to ourselves, ‘That’s awesome that they are recycling!’ but wouldn’t it be nice to reward this kind of behaviour? On their way home from school we meet a child and they discuss the lessons they were taught- we learn that their education implements good behaviours on top of the standard curriculum. Behaviours benefitting the culture, environment, and overall vibe of Koh Samui deserve to be rewarded – the Content Castle wants to honour these businesses by enlightening the public as to their positive practices.

How we are planning on giving back to the Koh Samui community?

At the Content Castle, we want to place a big focus on giving back to the Koh Samui community. As such, we will donate 1,000 words a week to a business that encourages the growth of a positive, community- and sustainability-building projects on Koh Samui.

Samui is full of hard-working shopkeepers, like the owner of this fruit stand.

How will we choose the lucky recipients?

The 1,000 words will be based on investigation and meetings with the business owners to ensure the information provided to the public is accurate. Koh Samui is filled with boutique hotels, restaurants, and schools – many of which deserve recognition for the positive effect they have on the culture of Samui. We will be honoured to donate words to these lesser-known places that are also using their work for the greater good of Samui.

It doesn’t stop there

It is important to us that the 1,000 words gain a significant amount of views – as such, we will publish the articles on our Content Castle platforms. We have an extensive reach across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Our hope is that our charitable program will encourage and help local businesses with positive practices to triumph, and continue to impact both Samui, and Thailand as a whole.

How will this work for the residents of the Castle?

Each week one resident of the Castle will lend their time to discovering a business, organisation, or school that works towards benefiting the overall community of Koh Samui. This project enables the resident to wander into the depths of the eccentric and busy streets. The resident will experience a newfound perspective of Koh Samui – beyond the sea and colourful walls of the Castle. It is important to us at the Content Castle that our residents are aware of the culture of Koh Samui.

We are passionate about giving back to the island that gave us a beautiful Castle, a stunning location, and a chance to bask in our dream. Many of Samui’s businesses deserve acknowledgment and we hope our gift of words will help the local community prosper!
