Lisa Canter has brought the fundraising campaign for Leng Sopharath to the 50% mark! As of today, contributors have helped me raise $381 towards the $750 goal. Yeah! With everyone's help and support, I'm sure we'll reach our goal.
Lisa's post is here.
Almost two years ago at the first Blogher Conference I was lucky enough to interview and get to know Lisa Canter (we aren't related but I learned a few things about the kanter/canter name from her husband, Marc)
I enjoy reading Lisa's blog. We have a few things in common beyond our last names. We both were trained as professional musicians and play woodwind instruments. (I played flute. Lisa plays bassoon, I don't know how shse manages to keep up her bassoon chops.) And, we both are parents of two young children.
Thank you Lisa for your contribution and writing about the campaign too!
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I want to tell everyone how grateful I am for their contributions, links, and advice.

Tharum, who I had the pleasure of meeting via my work with Global s, has linked to the Campaign.
I also want to thank Ken Goldstein for sharing with his network on YouTube.
Carnet Williams at the ChipIn blog has kept a record of links and dollars here.
Katya Andresen at the Nonprofit Marketing Blog gave me a guest spot to write about the campaign and solicit advice from colleagues here.
I've posted about the campaign on my Cambodia4Kids blog and made quick screencast to show folks how to cut and paste the code into blog posts. I also include some specific ways folks can help other give money. I'll point to this in my email campaign to contacts which I'll be doing over the next week.
I also got some advice on how to spread the Revver video without using the flash player. I used that in my post and for a post in flickr.
