As parents of three gorgeous kids we are so appreciative of the fortunate lives we lead. We feel it is important to instil in our children the importance of helping others who don’t have the basic necessities in life we take for granted such as clean water and an education. We have decided as a family to help raise funds for the children of Tanzania by walking Mount Kilimanjaro and hopefully paragliding off the summit – eeeeekk! I will be walking on behalf of my family who will be involved in the journey raising funds and awareness. I want to show our children and other children in the community that we can all have the ability to help change lives and have an amazing adventures in the process.
A lot of Tanzanian children spend their days walking to collect water– sometimes up to 6 hours a day This water is often a dirty waterhole, shared with animals and leads to sickness. This daily trek means they cannot attend school and limits future prospects.
By supporting Wings of Kilimanjaro (WoK) we can help change these children’s lives by providing sustainable waterwells and schools. Every $10 provides clean water for one child for life and the chance to attend school. I will be visiting the schools and villages where the funds that we raise will be directly changing their lives.
Unlike most fundraisers where only a small portion of funds actually reach the target, 100% of the proceeds of WOK go directly to the projects. The cost of the adventure we are funding personally to ensure all fundraising reaches those in need.
As much as I dislike asking friends to put their hands in their pockets, I sincerely believe in this cause and the proven difference it makes on children’s lives. Every bit counts and would be so grateful if you could donate what you can to help us make a difference.
By donating to our fundraiser page you will be joining our team and sharing the adventure.
I plan to have a dedicated facebook page that I can use for daily updates on my journey (where service provides) that will include pictures, stories and most importantly the lives of the children our fundraising will change.Please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
