THE STORY:


Welcome!


“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Every once in a while, an opportunity comes along that allows people to prove their mettle as human beings and make a difference in the lives of others. This September, Manisha and I are undertaking a challenge, a challenge of giving until it hurts, literally! We are joining Kantar colleagues from across the globe for a demanding five-day trek across Icelandic lava fields. The trails are tough and varied, and the trek will require walking about 10-12 hours each day over rocky and sometimes steep terrain.  

The impetus for this event is to raise awareness and funds for the plight of children around the world.  Each hiker covers their own costs and then also commits to raise $2400 to help support UNICEF’s work on behalf of children worldwide. 

Need your sponsorship to help us support the UNICEF’s Child Health & Child Protection focus areas

Here's a link. It's really fast and easy.

I have 6 weeks to raise $4800.  

Below are six valid reasons to donate to my fundraiser:

1 - Your donation is tax deductible

2 - Fundraisers like this have made it possible for UNICEF to help save more children's lives than any other humanitarian organization. Together, we've cut child deaths in half in over just two decades, and we've immunized nearly 40% of the world's kids.  UNICEF also feeds over 1 million kids and helps provide over 2 million people with clean drinking water. 

3- I will be sure to come back with thousands of pictures.  Then you can “like” them when I post them to Facebook and think “Hey – I helped send Myank there. You’re welcome”

4- Vodka.  Iceland produces some of the best Vodka in the world.  I will bring back few bottles to share.

5- Iceland has the most active volcano area in the world, the largest waterfall and glacier in Europe, the northern most botanical garden and golf course in the world, the cleanest capital in the world, a population with the longest life expectancy and had the first democratically elected female president in the world, Mrs. Vigdis Finnbogadottir.

6- The English word "geyser" comes from Iceland's Great Geysir in Haukadalur.

 

Thanks so much for considering supporting me and UNICEF.


With Warm Regards,
Myank & Manisha Jain
