Kilimanjaro: The climb of my life, supporting impoverished sea-dwelling children!

Raising $19,341 for the 19,341 foot mountain! Preview

On July 19, our mighty team of four will attempt a 7-day climb to the top the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro! We'll do this in support of Badjao Bridge, an amazing organization I have personally visited that helps impoverished sea-dwelling children out of dire poverty. 


Our team of four has set an ambitious goal of raising $19,341 (the elevation of Kilimanjaro!) which will enable Badjao Bridge to help 150 more children attend elementary and high school. It will also benefit the Lighthouse Learning Center, complete with a preschool, Kahn Academy study lab and safe house for vulnerable children. 


Your pledge, big or small, will make an incredible impact. Last year 98.6% of their budget went directly toward their programs, with just 1.4% overhead in the U.S.! They know smart money is on removing barriers for children to receive a quality education. Check out their website and Annual Report to see how many things this organization is doing with their resources.

Team members Dan Johanson, Matt Johanson, Katherine Lam, and Ronnie Mosley will cover their expenses, allowing your donation to go entirely towards a great cause!

Badjao Bridge is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are 100% tax deductible.

A big thank you, to you, our supporter! It's just past 6am here in Tanzania and we're a few hours from starting our trek up Kilimanjaro, in support of a cause we all care about -- Badjao Bridge.  Because of your generous support, we've raised over $10,000 for deeply impoverished kids who otherwise would not have the opportunity to receive a quality education. We are thrilled to empower these kids with knowledge, a proven poverty breaker. 

As we head up the mountain, we may be able to update you every 1-2 days on our Facebook page, Kilimanjaro for Sea-Dwelling Kids. Check it out! 

Gratefully yours,

Dan, Matt, Ronnie and Katherine
