Hello and Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page.
Why bother? Traveling in poor countries is often a humbling experience: It makes me see just how privileged I am to have been born and raised in a free and prosperous society. "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!" Many people along the way do not have the health and/or means for these most basic human rights. Giving and helping is very rewarding!
Why Doctors Without Borders? Just like the Panamerican Peaks extend beyond many borders, so does the help offered by Doctors Without Borders. They are active world-wide and in many of the Panamerican countries - for example see the International Activity Report for the Americas in 2007.
What your donation can do? For the cost of just your next latte you can feed a malnourished child for one month! An amount you likely give as tip to the waiter serving your next dinner can provide clean water to 50 refugees for one month, and for the cost of the entire dinner you can vaccinate all 50 of them against deadly epidemics! See here for what else your donation can do.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also tax-deductible and the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support-- and don't forget to ask your employer for a matching donation and forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
