My friend and colleague Beth Kanter is a real doer (as my grandmother would say). Right now, she’s jumpstarted an online giving campaign to send 10-year-old Cambodian Mon Channy to school (in center in photo at left).
Mon Channy’s Story
Frequently, children in very poor families work in order to bolster the family’s income, but this keeps them out of school. For Mon Channy,10, The Sharing Foundation’s(TSF) Khmer Literacy School has provided huge opportunities. Mon Channy is the only child of his widowed mom, who supports herself and her child through her work on the TSF farm. Channy is proud to be the first in his family to attend school. His teacher, Ying So Ry, says Channy is a very attentive, hard working student, and she sees a bright future for him.
Give Just $10 to Make a Huge Difference in Mon Channy’s Life
Give $10 today to keep Mon Channy in school, and help win him and his schoolmates $50,000 from America’s Giving Challenge. The Sharing Foundation has the opportunity to get $50,000, if Beth and friends inspire the largest number of unique donors to contribute to the Sharing Foundation through Global Giving between now and January 31, 2008.
