Busaba Chirathivat, Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications, Central Group, noted that now Million Gifts Million Smiles had reached its 10th year, the company was grateful to everyone who had given their support to bring this event into being over the years. This included the Royal Thai Army, other government agencies, customers, suppliers, the media, celebrities, artists and the general public in Thailand, who had assembled over 2 million gifts for children of the three southern border provinces impacted by troubles in the area. The company gives a greater priority to seeing every child grow up appropriately with a good standard of living and equal educational opportunities, which are provided by scholarships presented by Central Group to the children every year, to show concern, best wishes and support.
This year, Central Group will continue to emphasize its dedication to create love, unity and happiness in Thai society by joining with the Royal Thai Army to host Million Gifts Million Smiles Year 10, gifts from the heart bringing smiles, hope and encouragement, under the umbrella of Central Tham.

This activity was considered a great act of giving through the cooperation of all groups in society. It has brought hope to the children over the last 10 years of the activity co-hosted with Central Group.
