Abbie and Katie Climb Kilimanjaro for MAD
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page!
It’s happening. Abbie and Katie are climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Dec. 2013. We are fortunate enough to have created a wonderful partnership with Make a Difference (MAD). This fundraising climb is a huge investment of our time, energy and resources. We need your support to make it all possible!
Who is MAD?
The funds we raise will go toward; Make a Difference (MAD), a registered 501(3)c non-profit with an orphanage that supports 22 children. To learn more about the Make a Difference organization, please check out their site at:
15,000 people attempt to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro every year. Our hope is that we get to join those who have succeeded to the top. We have chosen the 7 Day Machame Route for our fundraising climb. It is the second most popular of the 6 possible routes. It is known for being one of the most scenic treks up the mountain!
We have both participated in multiple charitable trips around the world. These experiences are what helped shape and inspire us to travel half way across the world to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. In addition to experiencing what 19,344 ft above sea level feels like, we are excited to spend several days after our descent volunteering at the orphanage helping the children at MAD prepare to start their new school year!
Reaching our goal will allow a generous donation to Make a Difference. The donation will help support the general operating expenses for the orphanage; including food, shelter, and education for their children. If we exceed our goal, 100% of all additional funds raised will go directly to MAD! Donating through this website is simple, totally secure, and tax deductible. It will take just 5 minutes of your time!
Also, if you are interested in learning more about the Taylor sisters, please follow us on our Facebook page to see exciting updates of how we are preparing for our trip!
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! Please ask Abbie or Katie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
