Being present, witnessing the earthquake and the massive destruction and devastation in Nepal last spring, has made strong impressions. The will to help has haunted me.
Many people in Nepal are dependent on what they make from tourism during the spring season, to support the family for the rest of the year. Therefore I want to help the local people in Nepal and contribute with what they need the most - jobs and more business. After the earthquakes they need the business more than ever.
My expedition to Everest in 2015 was hit by the earthquake. I was fortunate to be able to leave the country uninjured and go back to a safe, predictable life. Now I want to help the people of Nepal by going back to Nepal, April 3rd, and make the expedition over in order to employ people for the period of the expedition. (These guys need work)
To contribute even more I will take you with me - on my journey to the summit of Everest.
For every person that contributes £45 ($63/570Nok) I will carry with me a heart made out of bio degradable paper, with your name on it. At the summit of Mt. Everest and I’ll sprinkle the hearts in the snow. The hearts are made of bio degradable paper, they will dissolve and leave no foot-prints.
There is a special opportunity for those who want to contribute a little more £100 ($141/1270Nok), I’ll take the heart back with me and send you a certificate with your very own heart that has been on a journey to the summit of Mt. Everest.
Having your own heart is an opportunity to climb your inner mountain - to reach your goal. Start by emailing me and tell me what your inner mountain is - the one you are seeking to climb. Work on your goal as the journey progresses and I will take it with me on my expedition. We’ll do your climb together. I will share pictures of the hearts along the way and send messages of encouragement.
Your inner mountain can be anything, small or large. Write down the mountain you have to climb, to reach the changes you want in your life.
The money contributed will unabridged go to employing locals. If there is a surplus it will go to Giitu Nepals project of building classrooms in remote villages in Nepal. Please follow the project and the hearts here: www.aimlofty.com and email me information about your inner mountain to: email@example.com
If you want to donate any other amount to this expedition or use VIPPS (for Norway) please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for sharing this initiative!
