Help My Pal Beth Win $50,000 for Cambodian Orphans

My friend Beth Kanter, of Beth's Blog, is working hard to win $50,000 for the Sharing Foundation by January 31, 2008 as part of the Case Foundation's America's Giving Challenge. She asked me to ask you to help.

The Sharing Foundation's mission is to help meet the physical, emotional, educational and medical needs of orphaned and seriously disadvantaged children in Cambodia. Beth is on the Board of the Foundation, and she and her husband have two children, Harry and Sara, who were adopted as orphans from Cambodia.

The way America's Giving Challenge works is that the 8 individual online fundraisers who inspire the most people to donate, will receive $50,000 for their charity.

Beth's friend, Michele Martin, set up a page through Global Giving where you can donate as little as $10 to the Sharing Foundation. You can also help by spreading the word. Beth has set up a wiki with information, photos and a fundraising widget that you can include in an email or blog post.

Right now the campaign is in first place with 812 donations (you can see the leaderboard here), but it has to keep up its momentum though January 31st 'cause the other campaigns aren't far behind them.

Thanks for giving and/or spreading the word!
