Giveaway: Graced with Orange - Jamie C. Amelio

Bringing Education to the Children of Cambodia, a Woman Finds the True Meaning of Her Own Life.
Readers will be inspired by the children of Cambodia. They are legacies of a genocide that murdered their teachers and many of their family members yet they yearn for the same opportunities young people deserve and desire all over the world a quality education in a safe, nurturing environment with skilled, motivated teachers.
In Cambodia, providing such an education was a huge challenge, but a small group of women in Singapore made it happen. This is the story of how Caring for Cambodia built sixteen life-changing schools, the likes of which were formerly unknown in this troubled third-world nation. It is also the story of how CFC changed the lives of founder Jamie Amelio and many of her friends and family members.
You'll start out learning how to build a charity from the ground up and end up understanding how 'giving' and 'getting' can become the same thing. 
Cambodia today is still recovering from a difficult past, yet I never give up hope that peace and prosperity are coming. My hope grows stronger because of the work of Caring for Cambodia and Jamie's message in Graced with Orange that one individual can make a difference, and that many individuals together can create a cascading effect that has the power to change lives. --Sichan Siv, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and author of the international bestseller Golden Bones.

  3. Hi Freda, Klout seems to have decided that I can't be influenced by you anymore. For the past two days I've been unable to give you Klout in any of your current topics. Maybe you could add some new topics and then I'd be allowed.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I've had some issues giving Klout to others as well. Maybe it is a glitch on their end, but will still look into it. :-)
