About an hour ago, I was contacted via Facebook from an old college associate who, truthfully, I spoke to more in passing. It's funny how Facebok truly brings everyone together like that.
In a private message, she made me aware of this foundation, Friends Without a Border. It's an organization that is raising money to help give funding to the Children's Hospital of Angkor Wat, in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
For those interested, and able, there are events being held on October 23rd, 2010 and an art opening on December 7th, 2010, where all proceeds go towards the hospital. I am currently working on what I will need to make happen, so that I can be in attendance, in accordance with my invite, for the dinner on October 23rd.
As it radiates from my blogs (many more to come), Cambodia really took a piece of me. The short time I spent there opened my eyes to the reality of where they need help, and the abundance of hope the Cambodian people have regardless of their situation. I loved this place. Siem Reap was probably my favorite part of this trip, since leaving NYC on August 29th. Whatever I can do, within my own limitations, I will wholeheartedly.
I am also announcing, right now, in this very blog post, a pledge.
**FOR EVERYONE WHO PURCHASES ONE OF MY TRAVEL PHOTOS, FROM CAMBODIA, I WILL DONATE $3 FROM EACH CAMBODIA PHOTO PURCHASE DIRECTLY TO FRIEND WITHOUT A BORDER. YOU WILL BE SUPPORTING TWO CAUSES.**
You can check the photos out HERE. You can purchase any size, and my donation will not vary.
