It’s an understatement to say Beth Kanter is a legendary person: Beth has touched so many lives on- and offline. She is committed to empowering nonprofits to use Social Media to power Social Networks for change.
I had the honor of meeting her during the Day of Service at NTC 2009. The first things she did was ask that I sign her copy of Ning For Dummies… I was floored!
This is a woman that is followed by more than 300,000 people on Twitter and she wanted to have her copy autographed. THAT is how Beth is! A humble person who is committed to help everyone!
Today, in her 53rd birthday, Beth once more has a selfless wish: to help send 30 Cambodian kids to school. To do so, she needs OUR help, of course! From her birthday blog post:
Make my birthday wish on Facebook come true! Donate $10 or $53 and help Cambodian children.
And don’t forget to wish me happy birthday on Twitter too: Happy birthday #beth53! Let’s send Cambodian kids to school: http://bit.ly/beth53
PS The Sharing Foundation has raised almost $23,000 on Facebook. If my birthday campaign can bring the total to $25,000 by my birthday, I’ll kick in $530, $10 for each year. If my birthday campaign can bring the total to $28,000 by my birthday, I’ll kick in $53 for each year or $2800.
So, go ahead spare $10: they can go a LONG way to help send Cambodian kids off to school.
AND BETH, HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM ALL OF US!
