BENEFITING: U.S. Fund for UNICEF
My life has always been about exploring, discovering, challenging, sharing, and loving; from the bustling streets of Kathmandu to work with disabled children to the villages in Chiang Rai to help build sustainable infrastructure for families, there lies a passion in curiosity and wonder when I dive head-first into getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. With every tear I shed from getting lost in foreign places, and with every muscle I use to climb up mountains (and fight jet-lag), I unveil a piece of myself that confirms how human I am by feeling afraid, lost, happy, accomplished... and I realize that these feelings are all too common among us all. Are we all really different from each other? What makes us entitled to something that others are not? Generally speaking, I am just one person among many, but it is more than enough to make a difference.
I invite you to join in supporting me as I trek and summit Mount Kilimanjaro on January 20, 2014, to benefit the UNICEF Tap Project to provide proper hygeine and clean water for millions around the world. Follow me as I show you how far your donation will go when I visit surrounding regions in Turkana and Nairobi, Kenya who have benefited from the WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) program set up by UNICEF and the Government of the Netherlands.
Although I wish I could physically take everyone around me on my travels, I want you to all know that my journey is just as much as yours.
