Climbing for a Cause

Dear Friends,

As many of you may know, I am attempting to climb Kilimanjaro for a cause.  This will be an experience of a lifetime and I am hoping to use this as an opportunity to help a cause that is particularly important to me: providing opportunities to children who otherwise may have none.

Before and after the climb, I will also be spending time with special needs children at the Gabriella Centre – a home and rehabilitation centre for children with intellectual challenges at the base of Kilimanjaro.  Our group has set a fundraising goal of $100,000 which will build a dorm for parents right at the Centre, allowing parents to come and work with their children and get caregiver training, thus allowing the children to stay in their homes and not have to be separated from their families or communities.

Through intensive therapy care and education, Gabriella Centre has already transformed the lives of 900 children with disabilities and their families. With our help, they will be able to help so many more.

I hope you will join me in building this incredible legacy by supporting my climb up Africa’s tallest mountain!  100% of your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

God willing, we’ll be climbing 15,440 feet (to the 19,341 ft peak). I’m asking you to sponsor us a penny, or ¢5 or ¢10 for every foot we climb. Or maybe you’d like to donate a certain amount for every day of the 6-day climb. No amount is too small, and 100% will go to help these children, currently discarded by society, whose potential is just waiting to be unlocked and celebrated.

Thank you in advance for being part of my journey up Kilimanjaro.
