BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER
EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2013
Hi I am Christian Kruger and on the 2nd of April 2013 I am going to hitchhike, walk and use public transport up the East coast of Africa to Cairo, with the goal of raising as much money as possible for charity. I am aiming to raise one dollar for every km that I travel. Within this journey I want to immerse myself within the African cultures all along the coast. I would like to live and experience their way of life. I will also involve myself with volunteer projects all the way up. I am in the process of contacting volunteer groups. I am planning to travel to Cairo for about 7 months.
I will be traveling with bare necessities such as my backpack, 1 man tent, portable gas stove and sleeping bag. I will cover all my traveling expenses and every cent that you donate will go via Crowdrise to the International society for children with cancer.
All the funds that are raised will be going to the International society for children with cancer. To show my appreciation, I am going to publically thank all the donors via a Facebook page. I will do this by uploading a photo of a thank you message on my facebook page. I will also link it to Google maps, so you can see exactly where the photo was taken.
So why am I doing this?
I just finished my degree in accounting and I am planning to do my honours next year at WITS University. Most people may see this as taking a year off or being set back a year; I see it as an opportunity to make a difference. With your help and my foot steps up the coast of Africa we all can give back to society. 2013 is the year of greatness and I am planning to make great things happen. Its time to start giving back.
I am currently creating a Facebook page for the trip.
