TweetWow! I am now on the plane flying from Atlanta to Seattle to begin my summit attempt of Mt. Rainier. This will be one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done, but…
I am SOOOO encouraged after what we accomplished! Together we raised over $25,000 to purchase a solar powered water purification system for Haiti. Daily this system will produce over 3,000 gallons of ultra-purified water to a community that has really never had anything like this and desperately needs it. Thank you for your generosity, for your tweets, for your prayers, for your well-wishes. They each made all of the difference!
As you may know, this campaign was just practice. Yes, it was for real, but we will kick it up several notches with our first official campaign.
I have pledged to push my body beyond its limits to climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents of the world to motivate you to push past your limits to change 7 of the ugliest issues facing our world. I chose to climb Mt. Rainier because it is really the number one training mountain in the United States for climbers that hope to tackle the biggest, most dangerous mountains in the world.
It won’t easy. Unfortunately a climber already died on Rainier this year and dozens more across the years. My ultimate goal is not just to make it to the top, but my ultimate goal is to get back safely to be with my family and to begin the fight anew with you!
Your support has encouraged my soul deeply and I believe we are only scratching the surface of our potential. I am not going to be able to answer or see emails, texts, tweets, etc. while I am on the mountain, but I am using a device called Spot Connect that uses satellites to help me send out status updates and tweets. Let’s hope it works.
I love changing the world with you.
