Leng is going to University after Beth Kanter raised the $1000 dollars it will cost in less than 24 hours. This worked simply because Beth knows how to use online tools like ChipIn, asks us to contribute to an individual and most importantly is known and trusted by hundreds of people.
If Beth tells me that a cause is worth $10 of my effort I don’t need to know much more (she’s also looking for help for Chanphearom). On top of that Beth offered a simple prize – a mention in her blog, which counnts for something in the blogosphere. It’s Beth making good use of her two most precious resources, trust and influence.
Here’s the list of those who responded within 24 hours – and good luck Leng:
Michael David Pick
Philip C Campbell
Jane E Quigley
