Donation to Epic Arts Cambodia

My son John raised a total of $150 (some through sales of his story in "D Mouse's Christmas Adventure," some through private donations) to send to Epic Arts Cambodia (visit them HERE).
"In Cambodia, Epic Arts provides a range of professional dance, drama, music and art programs to people of all abilities and disabilities in order to promote empowerment, integration and acceptance. This is vital is a country where an estimated 1 in 10 people have some form of disability."

$150 can do a lot of good in a place where the per capita income averages around $2 a day, and about 30% of the population is at or below the poverty level of $0.45 a day per capita.

Congratulations, John! I am proud of you! And thanks to everyone else who participated in his fund raising endeavor!
