Lao Donor Gives 5% of Month’s Earnings
We are so grateful. Read more for his story:
I first came across Cleanbirth.org through your campaign on
StartSomeGood.com. The campaign struck me because of the wonderful
work that you are doing to help mothers and infants in Laos. I have a personal connection to Laos because my family are from there.
In 2011 I visited my country of birth for the first time after migrating to Australia thirty-three years ago. I visited my late mother’s village and saw the house where she and her many siblings were born and raised. To be able to see what modest means our family came from, and to know that my parents did everything in their power to escape and create a better life for all of us - wow that was both an eye-opening and humbling experience.
I taught at a village school while I was there. When I researched
statistics about education in Laos and was shocked to learn that many
kids do not make it past primary level education due to lack of quality teachers, funding, and resource challenges – especially in the villages. I consider myself very fortunate to have been given the opportunities that I’ve had in my life.
Sometimes mothers and infants aren’t so fortunate as my mother and I
were. So this is why I feel connected to Cleanbirth.org and the work
that you are doing in Laos.
Last year my business partner Poy and I launched Kaboom Hub. We work with businesses to increase their exposure and get more leads through online marketing. Each month we support a philanthropic organziation by donating 5% of our earnings.
It brings us great personal joy to see what Cleanbirth.org is doing and to be able to support such a worthwhile project.
