Belated Mother's Day Present

To honor Mother's day this year, my parents bought a well in a Cambodian village in our girls' and my nephew's name. So that other mamas could have clean water to drink and raise their babies healthy.  When my mom told me I cried, it was beautiful.

And here is a picture of the well:


I think I'm changing my Christmas gift list a bit.

I'd like to frame a picture of this to keep in my office so I can keep perspective on my first world problems.

What a neat idea! Can I ask what organization this is through? I'd love to do this!

What a great gift idea. Hope you don't mind if I steal it and use it myself for friends and family this year.
