A Megastore For Monks
"According to the National Buddhism Office, Thailand had nearly 300,000 monks and more than 60,000 novice monks at the end of 2012. And all of them need stuff. [Mr.] Sakol Sangmalee founded the Hang Sangkapan - a sort of monk megastore - six years ago after a frustrating day crawling through Bangkok's traffic-clogged streets in search of supplies for 99 poor novice monks he was sponsoring." The Wall Street Journal 07/23/13 (includes video)
