EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2014

THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,


In lieu of a traditional gift registry, we have decided to fundraise for an organization close to our hearts - while also indulging in our love for travel and adventure! Joining the Flying Kites trek to Everest Base Camp in 2015 is part of our personal journey to support some of the world's poorest children.


During our 16 day Himalayan trek to Everest Base Camp we will get to experience some of the world’s most impressive mountain scenery. We begin the adventure by exploring the temples, shrines and bazaars of Kathmandu.  From there we take a mountain flight to Lukla and trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, surrounded by the soaring peaks of Thamserku and Kusum Kanguru.  We will spend the remaining time hiking through the spectacular Khumbu region to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patar.


Flying Kites is an organization committed to raising the standards of care for orphaned children who were homeless or abused. With the profits incurred by Adventure Challenge trips, they are currently building a home and leadership academy for orphaned children in Kenya. We encourage you to learn more about this incredible organization by visiting their website - www.flyingkitesglobal.org.


Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Flying Kites home and school in Kenya as we prepare to join them on a fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp (situated at 17,598ft!).


Alternatively, we would welcome contributions to our personal flights and expenses (donated air miles or checks made out in our names) as we prepare to embark on this adventure and make our honeymoon count!


With love and gratitude,


Catey and Ben
