The America's Giving Challenge is a competition sponsored by Parade Magazine and the Case Foundation, challenging non-profits to raise money from as many donors as possible. The minimum gift is just $10. The top winners will receive $50,000 from the America's Giving Challenge.
My dear friend and colleague Beth Kanter with great leadership support from Michele Martin are trying to win this challenge for The Sharing Foundation. I know they can do it, because Beth helped the Sharing Foundation win a similar challenge last year with Yahoo.
I've donated to this campaign and ask you to do so too! Just click on the America's Giving Widget on the left and donate today. You can also help by clicking on the "Share This" button and sharing it with your friends.
ABOUT THE SHARING FOUNDATION
The Sharing Foundation is this amazing organization that helps lift Cambodian children out of poverty through programs like 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. These students are so dedicated that some meet on their own to study on weekends. The literacy school runs three sessions a day for 130 children of Roteang village’s poorest families. Ten bilingual Cambodian college graduates teach English to 500 students in 19 sections offered daily after school hours at the village school.
