Last year Beth Kanter took three weeks to fulfill her goal of raising $1,000 to send Leng Sopharath, an orphan from Cambodia, to college. This year it took her 24 hours and 53 people each donating small amounts. You can read more about the full campaign at Beth's place.
The campaign was successful so quickly that Beth is keeping it open so that we can try to send a young man, Champhearom, to college too. So here's your chance to make a difference. Just click on the Chip-In widget above and you can donate $10 (or more) to the cause. That's about the cost of a few visits to Starbucks. Surely you can do THAT.
If you do, drop me a line and let me know and I'll acknowledge your contribution here with a link back to your blog. Let's see if we can send another young person to college.
