  • I’m a trainer - my focus is how nonprofits can use social media – and that’s photo of me teaching in Cambodia – and you’ll notice that there is a monk with megaphone next to a guy in a google t-shirt in a rural province outside a computer center. And I’m going to tell you the story
  • So, let me tell you how I ended up traveling to Cambodia, keynoting the first ever bloggers conference, and teaching hundreds of young cambodian college students about social media ….
  • I followed my passion – Two early personal blogs I kept – one was on Cambodian culture – and the other geeky – how to type in Khmer using the khmer keyboard and localized version of linux. I got lots of help from commenters – who were in Cambodia!
  • I got curious about Cambodian bloggers and started listening, finding and connecting. I was the Cambodian Editor in the early days of Global Voices – and connected with Tharum – who was the second most famous bloggers in Cambodia – the first being the king. One thing lead to another
  • I got to meet Tharum face-to-face in London at the Global Voices Summit in 2005! His first visit to the west! Video blogged his experience in Harrods – but he eventually became the Cambodian Editor for Global Voices
  • Which brings me back to the Cambodian Blogging Summit and the fundraising campaign – so I could sponsor the conference and get over there and teach I raised the money in a couple of days – ChipIn gave me a matching grant I started to experiment with using Twitter – had been on it for a year – and figured – what the heck. Little did I know that I was probably the first to use it for cause fundraising I was skyping with the bloggers asked them would you like me to bring as a gift from America? Schwank?
  • I used twitter. I asked my network for contributions, t-shirts, advice, and I thanked them.
  • And more t-shirts arrived at my door …
  • When I putting together the workshop on video blogging- I reached out to video bloggers list – and they suggested I take camera kits. Ryanne Hodson contributed copies of her book, and Raymond purchased four used kiddie cams from Ebay for $5 a piece.
  • Tools come and go, but the Three Rs Sustain
  • Mean Lux emailed to let me know that they had taken the cameras up to a Youth Festival and Training in a remote corner of Cambodia called Pursat!    Viirak (the guy behind the stickered laptop ) and Be Chantra were there to help.  Mean Lux wrote a blog post , but it is in Khmer can't translate fully.  May Mean Lux will drop a comment in english?
  • So follow your passion
  • Be A Geek Who Gives: The Recipe to the Secret Sauce (1) Follow Your Passion (2) Share Your Story With Your Friends – Make An Emotional Connection (3) Tools Come and Go, But Relationships Sustain: Be A Network Weaver (4) Leverage Your Social Graph
  • As a personal fundraiser, I ask my friends, readers, etc to help me because I care about this cause They – the donors – help me out because they care about me directly – we have a relationship – or through a shared experience Let me share with you how my 30 second pitch ..
  • Our family cares about Cambodia, it’s in our hearts because we adopted our children from there ..
  • That’s my son, Harry, and my daughter Sara when they first arrived in the Sharing Foundation’s orphanage ..
  • This is what they look like now. They have all the benefits of growing up here in the US – enough to eat, healthcare, a good education, etc. They are lucky, but I always …
  • But there are many children in Cambodia who do not have this opportunity.
  • It was not just my stories, but I gave a way a lot of t-shirts – so many that I could give them to the young people helped by the Sharing Foundation’s programs – the orphanage, education, computer lab – Each t-shirt was a story – not just my story – but that of a donor – and how a child helped by the sharing’s foundation’s programs.
  • That’s leng sopharath on the lower right – that’s the college student that my network has helped support.

  • One of the best quotes of the day came from Arianna Huffington who said, "To be generous, practice generosity."  She shared some powerful stories from the heart, and also mentioned that we shouldn't think we're too small to make a difference.  "If you've ever been in bed with mosquito, you know that isn't true."    She also announced that the Huffington Post has a new living section which feature the stories of people volunteering, raising money for causes they care about, and other inspirational stories.
