I am climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa in June 2012 for my favorite NYC nonprofit, CampInteractive (CI)!
CI is a Bronx-based nonprofit that inspires inner-city kids to step back into nature and forward into technology. They execute their goals using a two pronged program. First, CI takes students on outward-bound style adventure trips to open their minds and enhance leadership abilities. The students are outfitted with cameras, journals, and video equipment, and they are encouraged to record their experience. Upon returning to NYC, the students create a video, edit their photos, write stories, and build a website using their experience to fuel the content. This process gives students real-world applicable technology skills and the courage and leadership to use them.
This cause is very personal to me because of how the outdoors has affected me. I have fallen in love with hiking and it has made me more positive, happy, and healthy. I believe in CI’s mission and I am committed to raising $7,500 to keep these programs running. I would truly appreciate your help in reaching this goal! CI is a registered 501c3 nonprofit. All donations are tax-deductible
If it is more convenient for you to write a check, please make it out to Camp Interactive, with my name in the Memo, and send it to:
