Blogger Challenge for a Good Cause

Beth Kanter is an expert on the use of Social Media for non-profits. her latest project is - The America's Giving Challenge that will award $50,000 to the project that gets the most unique donors. The minimum donation to be counted as a unique donor is $10.

She is asking for help in meeting this goal and its a very god cause - Simply to remove poverty by educating the children. Just today Emily Wax wrote an article in the Washington post talking about Literacy and the effect on the caste system. Not toally connected but proves a point that education is important.

A post on your blog and donations from your readers even one will help this cause.

What this achieves will go a long way in promoting children's literacy in Cambodia.I know this first hand because a relative of mine teaches in Cambodia.

More details can be found in the Wiki that Beth created at

One of the The Sharing Foundation’s programs is its Khmer literacy school. It helps farm children learn their native alphabet and numbers well enough to attend elementary school. The Sharing Foundation's English Language Program offers village students, ages 8-18, the opportunity to learn English, allowing them to obtain jobs in tourism and word processing.
