It was almost unbelievable to see how the top nonprofits in the final hours of the America’s Giving Challenge competed to get one of the $50,000 prizes. It was heart stopping action. I don’t think Beth Kanter did much sleeping during the last couple of days.
What was the result of the contest?
The Sharing Foundation took first place! This ranking is unofficial, but I didn’t want you to have to wait while they verify the donation information (up to 30 days).
Donations made to date for the Sharing Foundation total $42,229 and 1710 donors who beat the contest deadline! Add the $50,000 prize and the Sharing Foundation will have over $90,000 to make a difference in many, many lives in Cambodia.
This was a great example of how powerful the Internet and social networks are and how they can be used to promote good in the world.
Thanks Beth for asking me to get involved.
