Beth Kanter, nonprofit technology blogger extraordinaire, is celebrating her 51st birthday on January 11!
Happy Birthday, Beth!
You can wish Beth a happy birthday, too, by contributing a small yet meaningful gift to the Sharing Foundation’s America’s Giving Challenge over at Global Giving. In honor of her birthday, Beth is trying to get 51 people to donate just $10 each within 51 hours.
At one donor (and a lousy ten bucks a pop) per hour, that really shouldn’t be too hard to do!
There are three great reasons to donate right now:
- The Sharing Foundation is an amazing organization that serves Cambodia’s orphaned and disadvantaged children. They run an orphanage, a Montessori preschool, language programs (Khmer and English), scholarship programs for high school and college, and lots more. Read all about it. If nothing else, give a little that goes a seriously long way with some kids who really need some care and support.
- The fundraising effort is also part of a larger campaig, the America’s Giving Challenge, which aims to inspire more people to give to more causes through online activism. It’s a great way to prove the power of micro-philanthropy, the power on online community, and the strength of numbers — even when each of those numbers alone represents only a seemingly small gift.
- Beth Kanter is an amazing person, blogger, parent, and activist. You should do something to help make her happy. This will do nicely.
