I NEED YOUR HELP
May 06, 2016

Hey Guys, On May 22nd I will be climbing to the Mount Everest Basecamp with 19 other individuals to raise money for an Organization called "All  See more
Giacomo Gianniotti

THE STORY:

On April 25th 2015, a 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal near the capital city of Kathmandu, the worst of its kind in more than 80 years. More than 9,000 people were killed, a further 23,000 were injured and the mass destruction to infrastructure and homes was vast. Aftershocks continued to shake the country in the weeks that followed causing further fear for those who left homeless and vulnerable by the initial earthquake. Basic necessities of livelihood continue to be at risk, including access to food, clean water and sanitation.

When it struck something inside me said I needed to visit the country. To help in some small way. I contacted an organization called "All Hands", that does incredible relief work all over the world for natural disaster stricken communities. They informed me that the response had been tremendous thankfully and that extra bodies were just getting in the way at this point, however they would inform me when there was an opportunity to be involved.

A year later, now, I have received an opportunity to visit Nepal, with the lovely people of "All Hands", and alongside 19 others will be participating in a 40 mile trek up to the Everest Basecamp reaching an altitude of 5555 Meters. We will be visiting villages along the way and taking in the culture of these people all the while raising money for the Nepal Earthquake Victims. Each climber is tasked with raising a minimum of $3000, meaning our team will raise $60,000 dollars for these people. The "All Hands" CEO, David Campbell will be matching all donation made up until May 12th. We have an opportunity here to help the "All Hands Volunteers" continue to make a real difference and help this community in the world that has been severely devastated, please help me reach my goal by donating. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for live-posting your Everest trek and for raising awareness. The people of Nepal will never be forgotten. I just want to affirm your efforts, do know that it will not go to waste and that your fans know that you're doing this not because of vanity but you've felt the pain of the victims of the 2015 tragedy. P.S I hope that you receive what you've been yearning for — whatever it may be. May you be blessed tremendously as you bless others. May you conquer more mountains, metaphorically and literally. Again, thank you Giacomo and to All Hands Volunteers! God bless! From Trisha and my lil' poodle, Lulu. #FOREVERest 2 years ago
