We are a group of bloggers that want to do more than talk about all things Mormon. We have pledged to “Adopt a Stake” through the Liahona Children’s Foundation (LCF). What this means is we are committed to raising enough money to provide for the nutritional and educational needs of children in need in the Ta Khmau area of Cambodia. The LCF uses stakes to facilitate finding children in need. Their efforts are focused in LDS circles, but they seek to give aid to all families regardless of their affiliation with the LDS church. This is a tremendous opportunity to help those in desperate need, but we can’t do it without your help!
