This Cambodian child who lives at The Sharing Foundation's Roteang Orphange is saying thank you. In Cambodia, the gesture for thanks is to put your palms together and say "Augoon."
The contest doesn't end until January 31st, so it isn't too late to donate in honor of my birthday or simply to support a good cause. I will continue to share stories about the Sharing Foundation and hope that we can ultimately win the $50,000. Stay tuned.
so I thought I would demonstrate the Cambodian gesture for thanks and share a learning about "social fundraising" which is reciprocity - so when the clock struck midnight I gave a donation to the Frozen Pea Fund and Ashely Spencer's Memorial Fund.
and on Facebook many, many wall posts, but love this one Phatry
