Relief Efforts for the Floods in Cambodia. Please Help Support a Good Cause

Dear Readers,

I typically would not solicit the soliciting of funds, but this is for a good cause.

A peer of mine who volunteers in Baray District of Kampong Thom Province in Cambodia, teaching English and assisting in Youth Development, has been witness to one of the worst floods in SE Asia in the past decade. She, her co-teacher and a local NGO, Action for Development (AFD) are asking for any donations which will go towards the purchase and distribution of emergency kits containing food, a water filter, and sanitation products. Each kit costs $25 (for a family of 4). These kits are indeed only a temporary fix but for hopefully, a temporary problem. The idea is that this will help sustain them until the flooding subsides. Any help, I know, will go a very, very long way.


Talk to you soon,


  1. Happy to help!
    Miss you like crazy! Thanks for the pix!
    Love, Mom

  2. I like that that reads:

    "Dad said...
    ...'Love, Mom'"
