Current Event : Climbing Mt. Kili- July 2014
Pictures from the Climb Available NOW!! Click Here
Dear Friends and Family,†
As some of you may know, I am traveling to Africa this summer and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro! This is a personal challenge for me, and I am very excited about the trip.The organization that Iím going with is called Overland and I will be traveling with six girls, six boys and two counselors.† Overland travels all over the globe, and this will be my third trip with them.†
The reason Iím telling you this is because, I ask of you a great favor: to sponsor me while Iím climbing Mt. Kili to raise money for an orphanage in the Turks and Caicos. There are many ways for you to help me with this. My suggestion is: you sponsor me for every foot that I climb, by donating money ranging from one cent to ten cents. My goal is to raise $19,341.00!! All of the money that I raise will go to the orphanage that is very special to me.†
The Orphanage is called Provo Childrenís Home, Turks and Caicos. I started helping out there when I was five years old, playing soccer, building Legos and bringing food to the kids.† I have continued to support them in their new residential facility called The Provo Childrenís Home and the Youth Education Center. Over Spring Break this year I tutored a great 17 year old boy named Watkinson and spent time hanging out at the Center with him after school. They are a great group and the home provides a very safe and supportive environment for orphaned children from 6-17 years old. I would like to continue to see this place grow and for the kids to continue to get the resources they need. I pledge to do this hike for them and to now be able to offer my support financially to the orphanage!
Please consider helping me to make my pledge of $19,341.00 and I promise to make my goal of summiting Mount Kili!! I will send you a picture and an update as soon as I get back at the end of July. Please find information on The Provo Childrenís Home at www.pch.tc.
Please email Tanis with your pledge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support! Once again, any amount is appreciated and I plan on presenting the money to the orphanage when I return to the Turks and Caicos at the end of July.†
