Timothy Wilt's Fundraiser:

Morphing Trail Miles into Help for Refugees

Goal will be surpassed!
July 17, 2016

Thanks to your support, our goal for supporting refugees is 98% met and will soon be surpassed. What a blessing to see miles hiked along a peaceful  See more

THE STORY:

Here's how you can use the miles covered in my hike on a section of the Appalachian Trail as a gauge for helping refugees:
1) Commit to a minimum contribution.
2) In addition to the minimum contribution, commit to paying a certain amount of cents or dollars for every mile that I cover up to 240 miles (the distance I intend to hike: Glasgow, VA to the Potomac River).
3) When I have finished my hike, you will use this site to make your contribution to the International Rescue Committee. The IRC, rated “A+” by CharityWatch, will use this money to help refugees.  Some have already donated the "minimum contribution" and will add a per-mile-hiked donation after the hike. But others are waiting to donate the full amount after the hike is finished. Either way is fine.

EXAMPLES
A. You commit to a $10 minimum and a penny for every mile I cover, and I reach my goal of 240 miles. You will donate at least $12.40 ($10 minimum + $2.40, a penny per mile).
B. You commit to a $50 minimum and a dollar for every mile I cover, and I reach my goal of 240 miles. You will donate at least $290.
C. You commit to a $50 minimum and a dollar for every mile I cover, and I hike only 10 miles, having broken my ankle on the 8th. You will donate at least $60.

Thanks for your interest in my hike and, much more importantly, for helping refugees!
