I don't know the person you are mentioning, but I LOVE CNN Heros, always watch it, and see the reports on many of the nominees during the year. This comment will top the thread so others may see it and maybe the editors will move it back to the Asia Forum.

lol lol lol. Thank you Amy. As you see, Dogs bite. All forgotten, forgiven - and bravo you,/i> for recognising a mistake.

[for those a little confused, Ponheary went on a little trip to Lounge Hell - but she came back. There was a brief exchange of words, since deleted...]

Here are the airtimes. It's ON TODAY!!! We've got a TV set up in the kitchen and everyone we know is gathered today to watch it. A very happy time for Ponheary, the family and 2354 cambodian children.

It was also on Larry King last night. I don't usually watch Larry as he is such a lousy interviewer- but in clicking around I found that he had a clip of her on last night!

I got an email from Cheryl this morning (she's at a meeting in Denver) who saw this on CNN and said it was excellent. She said she bets the PLF will get many donations as a result of this. I hope so!

I just saw it on CNN at the office. The piece is exactly the same as what you see on the website - it is short and does not begin to tell the story but that is what media is about these days. In any case, it was great that the Cambodian school children received this publicity and, hopefully viewers will connect the dots and donate to the Foundation.

As offwego said, there are two trailers - one on Ponheary and one on Lori Carlson (offwego). The one that is on CNN is on Ponheary.

Excellent! So great to see. We were at Ko Ker school in 2006 too long ago!

I checked in with the CNN website while reviewing the day's news and was shocked and delighted to see Ponheary's face front and center for the main story!!! I met her back in '05 while backpacking with my sister. I am absolutely ecstatic to see Lori and Ponheary to be receiving this coverage - I hope it will bring great things! As an educator, I thank you for the work you are doing.

This is wonderful! We all left part of our hearts in Siem Reap back in 2006 when touring with Dara and going back to the house to meet Ponheary and the family was one of the most moving experiences of any travel anywhere, ever. Great work, Lori, and best wishes to you, Ponheary, and all at the PLF.

Thanks everybody.

Don't be disheartened Craig. It was but a snippet, but already the exposure is paying off.

If she makes the top 10, she'll get the full story told. They were here 2 days and took some amazing footage in the village and school at koh ker, in addition to Ponheary touring at the temples and teaching a class at school.

I hope she makes the cut just so I can see the whole enchilada!

Lori tell Pon she looked FABULOUS and so do you!

I am so happy that you are all finally getting the exposure for the children that you've worked so hard for and they richly deserve.

How do we help Ponheary make the top 10? Is there a way to vote?

There's a panel of judges that decides the top ten (sometime In Sept) Then there's a thanksgiving special on CNN that features the top 10 and then viewers vote. I'll post again if she makes it and we'll circle the wagons. Fingers crossed!

We'll be in Sikkim, but I'm hoping we'll have internet access and can vote for Ponheary.

I saw it on CNN about an hour ago. It was short but well done and exciting to see. Lori, do let us know if she gets to the top 10.
