I woke up this morning and I'm sitting here utterly speechless and with tears of joy!! Everyone's generosity is very heart warming and wonderful!! Thank you so much for contributing to the campaign.
I know the badge says I've Raised $49537 from 745 Donations! It really should say "We" There was lots of help from the Sharing Foundation family - board members, volunteers, and supporters -- especially TSF's founder, Dr. Hendrie, whose relentess attention to campaign made it successful. In addition, we received lots of support and help from the Cambodian adoptive parent community and their families, churches, synagogues, fellow employees, golf buddies, quilting clubs, book clubs, parents of their children's school mates, high school and college friends, and beyond. The Cambodian American community also rallied for us too!
In addition, I want to thank all the readers of this blog and my colleagues who I hit up for donation to this campaign! You all rock!
This money will send over thousand Cambodian youngsters to school in 2007, plus cover a lot of the costs of the Sharing Foundation's educational programs which include a pre-school, khmer literacy program, English language program in the local village schools, vocational training (sewing school) and high school/college sponsorship programs. We now await the official results of the Network for Good/Yahoo Challenge.
