The Mount Kilimanjaro Climb for Oprhans
Organized by: PJ Tormey
EVENT DATE Sep 08, 2014
Zimbabwe, Africa is one of the poorest nations in the world. It is place where 1/3 people are living with HIV/AIDS—among other ailments—and many babies and children are forced to survive everyday without parents, guidance or support of any kind.
As some of you know, I've been traveling to Zim for the past five years, committed to building, empowering and helping these people (the poor, destitute, disadvantaged, widows and orphans) through the humanitarian and philanthropic organization Celebrate International (celebrate.org)
Celebrate currently has two orphanages that support over 60 orphans in rural Zimbabwe. However, the orphanage is full, outdated and in great need of relocation since it’s opening in the early 80’s. This is where Project Relocation comes in.
Project Relocation is about giving these, and additional oprhans, a new home in the city of Harare, next to our new school (affiliated and accredited through Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma), to enhance and teach them practical skills while harnessing their God-given talents for long term success (Music, academics, agriculture, livestock/farming, athletics, art, etc)… As is, the orphans are isolated deep within rural Zimbabwe and cut-off from the rest of the world.
My personal goal is to raise at least $5,000 for the Zimbabwean orphans. And I'm committing to climbing all 19,341 feet of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with Pastor Tom Deuschle and a group of Mighty Volunteers looking to raise over $600,000 and make a serious dent in the Zimbabwe orphan crisis.
I'm asking that you (my friends and family) support me, and our team, as we support the Zimbabwean children in need of a new home and essentially a brand new chance at life.
I have already committed to covering the expense of the flights on my own. That way the majority of what I raise goes directly to Project Relocation.
Will you join me in giving these beautiful boys and girls a new home? Remember, every cent will make a difference!
*Ps. Don’t forget to get me your email/contact address so I can keep you updated on the impact you’ve made and the progress of this project.
