America's Giving Challenge / by Chel Wolverton

Beth Kanter and I were exchanging emails the other evening and she mentioned America's Giving Challenge which is sponsored by Parade. The challenge is to see which project can get the most donations by January 31, 2008. That project will gain a $50,000 donation. Michele Martin is raising this money for The Sharing Foundation to bring literacy to children in Cambodia to provide them with a way to leave poverty behind.

I've added the widget to's sidebar that links to the donate page. Please consider donating, even a small amount.  Every little bit will go a long way to helping Michele raise money, win the challenge and to help children in need.
