Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page for the 2016 Wings of Kilimanjaro event.
After years of contemplation as to how to how to somehow make some kind of positive difference, at least somewhere in the world, an opportunity finally presented itself.
In 2010, I came up with an idea for a charity event that would be fun, demanding and also perhaps change a few lives in the process. Working with support from family, friends, the International Paragliding Community and the Government of Tanzania, Wings of Kilimanjaro (or WOK for short) was born. WOK gives people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to climb Mt Kilimanjaro and paraglide from the summit; at the same time as raising money for our amazing charity partner WorldServe International.
WOK is now regarded as the most exciting charity event in the world; having snowballed into the globally renowned philanthropic annual adventure that it is today.
Like always, 100% of funds raised in 2016 go straight to the WOK charity projects on the ground in Tanzania - there are NO administration fees taken and every cent goes straight to our projects focussed on water-well construction and school building for communities in dire need.
Being able to combine a life-long love of flight and adventure with making a humble, yet positive difference in the world has changed my life. You too, will change lives with anything that you can afford to donate to our cause here on this page.
Please help me reach my target of USD-$20,000 in 2016. It's a lofty goal but with your help we can make it! Even a US$10 donation will ensure that at least one Tanzanian has access to a permanent, clean and safe local water source.
Thank you so much for any donation, large or small. Together we can do great things.
