Dear friends and partners,

This morning I want to remind all of you about the upcoming – NAILS for NOKOR TEP campaign- to be held this April and May. I need all of you to help us by doing your fingernails in the coming month - Sharon from Australia thought it very unfair that I only targeted men and she was right – this campaign is for 1 million people to donate $10 – how – for men by having your nails painted and people sponsoring you per nail – women – perhaps you can have a Nail party whereby you discuss what it would be like to have no treatment if you were diagnosed with cancer.

All of us know of someone who has been affected by cancer - - all of us discuss the treatments and opportunities available. YET - for Cambodian women – these options are not available – what would that be like – to know you have cancer – and to know there are no options!!

The money raised will be to buy the equipment needed to diagnose and treat the women here. How good would that be!! Equipment such as MRI, Cat Scan, Linear Accelerator, Mammograms and ultrasounds – etc.

I ask that you help us to achieve this miracle by having your own event and encouraging others to have theirs – take a video, challenge other people through social media and soon the opportunities for Cambodian women with cancer will happen.

Let me share a few events that will happen:

Each first grader will have the goal of earning $10 and I'll encourage families to pass on the challenge of donating $10 or more to Nokor Tep to 10 other families. Mike Ferguson wheels are the next day or two....I will start the campaign......

Trying to figure out which guy I want to start with.....:) I hope I can make this go viral!!!!

Karen Wolverton – CEO – LUSH N/A

I will join the campaign and I will contact all the men who I know have been housebuilding on the UWCSA Family trip to join me. Sue has agreed to be the nail painting specialist! Dave Shepherd

As for this event- what a wonderful idea! I'm actually in the army now, so it's a little harder from here. But i promise to figure out a way to contribute to this, whether it's with my fellow soldiers on base, or anyone else who is willing. – Romi

My plan with the nail painting is to contact all my team members who have joined me on the trips and to post it on face book the beginning of April. Hopefully lots of people will want to see me look like a fool. I also will see if I can get people to donate extra if I keep the polish on for one month. Casey

These are just a few responses to many I have received – for us here in Cambodia – on April 6th – all Tabitha managers will get their nails done at the hospital – as Heng says – I don’t mind looking foolish for the sake of my wife and daughter.

April is the month of reminding us of the gift of life – Khmer New Years and Easter – of renewing and being thankful for our own lives – how good that is! I thank my God that this April it will be our opportunity to give life to so many women in Cambodia – how good that will be!!!
