THE STORY:

Hi Everyone,

I learned about Somaly Mam and her foundation when I assisted at a NYC screening and discussion panel for the PBS documentary, Half the Sky.  Like most individuals who are moved by these strong women, I purchased the book that accompanied this film.  I was very lucky to have had the opportunity to volunteer at Somaly Mam's annual Gala, Life is Love.  I met this tough, yet sweet woman and her beautiful girls who can smile today thanks to the help and love Somaly has brought them.

Shortly after this Gala, I knew I wanted to be a part of the solution and attended a few events benefitting the foundation.  My determination to help this organization grew stronger after reading the book, The Road of Lost Innocence:  The True Story of a Cambodian Heroine, and learning of the chaos in Cambodia.

Friends, as a Leo, you know I love my birthday and I am sure you are expecting something really fun and over-the-top for the big 3-0; but I have plenty of blessings in life.  This year, my greatest wish is that you donate any amount you can to this wonderful foundation; and remember, no amount is ever too small when helping a fellow human being.

Let's celebrate by helping out these wonderful girls and amazing woman!

 

Check out the foundation's website and some neat stats on how your donation will help.
