BENEFITING: DZI FOUNDATION

EVENT: The Endless Ascent

John Byrd

THE STORY:

The dZi does the most outstanding development work that I am aware of. Its Deep Development model results in truly sustainable development. I've had the privilege of being on the dZi board for almost 10 years and am amazed at the great work our Nepal team does.  

 I turn 69 in February 2018 and plan on walking, biking, skiing, climbing (hopefully not crawling) 100,000 vertical feet between today - May 31, 2017 - and my 69th birthday. I like going uphill, but going uphill while helping dZi will be even better. Also, having a big goal - 100,000 feet for dZi - will create a wonderful incentive for me to get out the door and DO IT! I'd like to raise $10,000 (more would be even better). I'll leave it to Ben Ayers and his team to decide how to best use the funds. It could help fund a school or a water project or an agricultural program. I hope you will join me in supporting dZi by nudging me uphill with a pledge. Thanks so much! John Byrd
