$345 to go…

by Holly on December 15, 2009

in seriousness

Hello my dahlings!

Yours truly is planning on an 8:30pm bedtime (yes, EIGHT-THIRTY). I am no longer crabby, just tired and feel off.  You know what I mean? I think a nice, long night of sleep is exactly what this gal needs.

Before I hunker down in the warmth of my bed, I wanted to give y’all a little update…

I am beyond happy to report that together, we have raised $655 dollars so far to build a well in Cambodia!  If you haven’t already, DONATE HERE!

That means we are only $345 away from reaching our goal!  I know some of my family (as well as myself) still need to donate, but I need your help in getting to the glorious $1000 mark.  I’ve been speaking with the director of Sustainable Cambodia and they are literally there RIGHT NOW picking out a location for the well.

I thought maybe some more gratuitous photos would help convince you to donate some dolla dolla bills…

The temple of Ta Prohm, known for the various trees growing literally right out of the temples...

Please help support this beautiful country by giving the gift of water this holiday season to a country where 2/3 of the population does NOT have access to clean drinking water.

Thank you for all of your support, love and help in making this project come alive!

Much love.

Peace, happiness and sleep.

It’s funny that when I mose long and need for rest, I am the craziest during the day. I reallly want you to check this out:

I know it seems a little off topic, but what you are doing to raise money also speaks to the issue of how much water the US wastes. Here in Germany we have two kinds of ‘flushes” for our toilets. in USA, the bottled water industry has ruined the earth with wasted, can’t really be recycled plastic and we STEAL it from overseas!
You go girl!

Good Morning Ms. Holly,

Love, Megan

Hope you got a great night’s sleep last night, I did the same and it helped my cold so much.

Cambodia seems like such a fascinating, unique, and historically rich place. You should have your own show on the Travel Network, your post has piqued my interest!

Way to go, Holly!

Allison R. December 16, 2009 at 7:19 pm

I slept last night for 10 hours!!! I NEVER do that! Isn’t weird how sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered?

Jess December 16, 2009 at 8:58 pm
