I just received an email from Rick Latona announcing that he is raising money for his climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro in March. The money he and his group are raising will be donated to The Water School to support simple, safe, strategic, and sustainable clean water solutions to the developing world. Through their programs, TWS provides clean drinkable water using extremely inexpensive and locally available materials.
There is a fairly large group of people from the domain community who will be making the trip, and the complete list can be found on the Kili2010 website. Rick’s fundraising goal is $19,340, which amounts to $1.00 per foot that he and his group will be climbing.
You can make a donation directly on Rick’s pledge page or you can donate to one of the other climbers. My company just made a pledge to help Rick achieve his goal, and I hope you will think about doing the same.
