In July 2011, I along with seven other adventurous individuals of the Financial Planning Industry successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. We did this climb in aid of Amani Children’s Home.
Initially, I had set three goals. Two were announced when I began this project and the third was not “unfurled” until I had surpassed the first two.
The first is my “Base Camp” Goal of $5,895 which represents the height above sea level of Mount Kilimanjaro as expressed in metres. The second is my “Summit” Goal of $11,000. This represents the year 2011. Third and last was my “dream” was $19,340 representing the imperial height of Mt Kilimanjaro in feet above sea level. Just prior to my departure to Africa, this was attained. Donations continued to flow and by the end of August 2011, I had exceeded $24,000!
While I have wrapped up my active campaign for this adventure, I am still accepting donations for Amani. At present I have received support from just under 200 generous donors. If a few more good souls wish to assist, we can top the 200 mark.
