      Bummer Mervyn. The crew just departed from Cambodia. Would have been an awesome opportunity. Thanks for thinking of it!

      Peace,
      Dawn

      hi Dawn, how long will you and crew be in Cambodia?
      there is the Angkor Photo Festival happening in Siem Reap from DEC1-DEC7.

      Perhaps all of us who have donated so far could increase our donations in addition to bringing in more donors? 12 days to go...

      I was just wondering what was going on with this a couple days ago! I first saw the trailer at Egofest 2011. It certainly hooked me.

      First, I was a slave to those who captured me; then after I escaped, I became a slave to my anger and painful memory. After my forgiving, I became truly free. Once a leaf at the mercy of the wind, I am now a giving tree. There are millions of people like me who are yet to set themselves free; so I need your help to alleviate anger and painful memory. Please join this cause and help me spread my story.

      In memory of the victims and in honor of the survivors, I personally thank all of you for your support.
