Hi Friends and Family, 

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 supported that helps impoverished sea-dwelling children out of dire poverty.

Our team 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 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.
