To celebrate Beth's 53rd birthday today Amy Sample Ward and Stacy Monk came up with a have fun do good idea: they are throwing her an online surprise party to fulfill her birthday wish of raising $530 to send 53 Cambodian children to school through the Sharing Foundation. To understand why the Sharing Foundation is important to Beth, watch this video she made with her son Harry last year.
Sixty bloggers (and counting) posted about how Beth has impacted their work, and linked to her Birthday Cause on Facebook. As of this writing, Beth's wish to raise $530 has been surpassed. $3,256 has been donated to the Sharing Foundation in her honor.
If you read Beth's Blog, and would like to be a part of her online surprise party just:
- Add your name and blog address to the big list (Google Document).
- Publish a blog post about how Beth has impacted your work (be sure to include a link back to her birthday wish post: http://bit.ly/beth53).
- Wish her a Happy Birthday on Twitter, too. Here’s a tweet you can use: “Happy birthday @kanter #beth53! Let’s send 53 Cambodian kids to school: http://bit.ly/beth53″
