Weʼve raised £1,378 to support Nanapai in Tanzania

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In September 2017, we will be heading to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. At 5,895m above sea level, Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent – couple that with its 50% success rate and the climb is definitely no small challenge (and trust us, having done one practice walk so far, we are well aware of it).
A big motivator for us in taking on this mountain and all its perils has been the opportunity to do some good and raise money for some wonderful charities – that is where you lovely people come in! We’ve set up this page to ask for your support by donating whatever you can.
We will be splitting the funds raised between two amazing charities: the British Red Cross, and Nanapai. Unfortunately, as Nanapai is not a UK-based charity, we were unable to combine fundraising for both causes, meaning we have two separate pages, one for each charity. This is our page for Nanapai, but if you’d like to donate to the British Red Cross, we have a separate page for them at this address: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/kili2017redcross
Of course, any donations you are able to make will be gratefully received, but for those among you with no strong preferences over which charity to support, we encourage you to split your donation between the two!
If the thought of us trudging up a mountain with little to no oxygen and going to the loo outside isn’t quite enough to release those purse strings, we promise your money will be going to a worthy cause. Nanapai is a charity founded and run by successful Maasai community leaders, which uses its funding for local ventures which maintain the Maasai way of life. Ventures include assisting schools whose syllabus respects the traditional values of the Maasai people, healthcare for Maasai villagers, and obtaining water for families forced to leave their homes.
We really appreciate any contribution you can make. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support; this will spur us on as we battle to the top!

To all those who have supported us, This is just a quick message to thank you for your generosity and encouragement. On 19th September, all 6 members of our group successfully summited Mt Kilimanjaro. We all faced physical, emotional and mental obstacles along the way, but we did so in the knowledge that we had the backing of so many wonderful people. So here is a photo of us at Uhuru Peak, Africa's highest point, with our summit crew, and a big thank you again for your support, both from us and on behalf of Nanapai. Lots of love to you all x
