The much-anticipated Diplomatic Red Cross Bazaar will return with a wide range of outstanding products from around the world, at Paragon Hall, 5th floor of Siam Paragon, Rama I Road, from Friday to Sunday, daily from 10am to 8pm.

This is the 57th edition of the annual charity shopping event organised under the "Shop For A Cause" concept by the Thai Red Cross Society in collaboration with spouses of diplomats and their embassies to raise funds for the operation of the Thai Red Cross.

Last year's event raised over 10 million baht from the sale of products, events and raffle tickets. The proceeds are allocated to support various projects that benefit impoverished individuals in Thailand.

The upcoming bazaar will have special prices on products from 57 countries including food, consumer products, clothing, accessories and home decor items.

Among the highlights are home products from leading brands from the US; skincare made from Bulgarian roses, shower gels and lotions from Spain; pure argan oil from Morocco; cashmere clothing, shirts, scarves, shawls and leather goods from Mongolia; and glassware from the Czech Republic.

Besides Thailand's Otop products and items from the Royal Project shops, limited-edition shopping carts featuring gerbera motifs from the Thai Red Cross Society will be available at 500 baht each.

Another special feature of the event is Diplomatic Red Cross Bazaar raffle tickets, priced at 50 baht each. The raffle draw will take place on Sunday, at 5pm.

This year also marks the first time that Thai Red Cross souvenirs and raffle tickets will be available for purchase through the online platform iredcross.org. This is a new channel for people from all over the world to contribute to a good cause.

Entry to the fair is 50 baht at the doors (40 baht for early birds who purchase online tickets via iredcross.org by today).
