Two girls from Orem are using their talents to help children in Cambodia.

Eleven-year-old Brianna Ray and her 14-year-old sister, Tenika Ray, wrote a song and recorded a CD to raise money to sponsor children wanting to get a good education in Cambodia. The girls got the idea after visiting Cambodia during a family vacation.

This morning we gave them a High 5.

Girls get a High 5 for helping children in Cambodia

Their family was living in Singapore for about a year, and they did some sightseeing in Cambodia while they were there. They saw students sharing desks and students without shoes.

They were so moved by the experience that when they returned to America, they wanted to do something to help. So with the help of a teacher, they produced a CD to raise funds to sponsor children in Cambodia.

A family friend, Maria Johnson, nominated them for a High 5.

"I was so impressed that you gave up your birthday presents, and you made a CD so you could give money to the kids in Cambodia so they could have a decent education. That is amazing," she said.
