Kilimanjaro Charity Challenge Trek 2014

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all doing well. I am writing to tell you all of an exciting opportunity available to me this summer. I will be volunteering in Kenya, Africa for 4 weeks in local orphanages. I am going with a program called International HQ. This is a non-profit organization that helps place volunteers all around the world. I am going to Africa because there is a need for help there and I feel that I can make a difference there by volunteering my time and services. I am paying my own airfare and will be staying with a local family during my time there this summer.
Along with this program, I have made contact with another organization, the "Make A Difference Foundation". I have an amazing opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with other volunteers. Kilimanjaro is not only Africa's highest peak; it is also the highest freestanding mountain in the world. I will become eligible to participate in the hike by raising $3,000.00 for the MAD Foundation. Please help me reach my goal so that I can join other fundraisers in the heart of Africa.
The MAD Foundation helps people in some of the world's poorest countries to help themselves, by working with them at a grassroots level to develop much needed community resources. Their main objective is 'to advance education and aid in the relief of poverty in any part of the world'. They have already funded over 300 community projects. Every penny raised by the MAD Foundation goes directly to sustainable and beneficial development projects. It would mean so much to me if you could help sponsor me on this adventure, and help me raise 3,000 dollars for the MAD Foundation! Every penny counts in the quest to help the world. Thank you in advance! Please contact me with any comments or questions you have.
Thank you again for your support.
