Climate Change: Save Antarctica '18

Ever since I was a young child, the wonders of our world have always fascinated me. Seeing these wonders at risk, has made me extremely worried about the future of our planet and since then, I knew that my life would be dedicated to ensuring the preservation of something far greater than any one person.

This upcoming February, I plan to embark on a journey to the Antarctic with world-renowned explorer Robert Swan, in an effort to spread awareness about climate change and renewable energy solutions. After speaking with Robert and Jeff Bonaldi, Founder & CEO of the Explorer’s Passage, I’ve been granted a leadership position on the expedition as head of the Climate Actions Team, however securing the necessary funds for the expedition has been a difficult task.

Due to the remoteness of the location, airfare to and from Argentina, as well as gear required to withstand such extreme temperatures, my estimated cost for the expedition is $20,000 ($2,000 for equipment, $2,000 for airfare, $16,000 for the expedition) of which I can personally fund $7,000 however I desperately need the help of all of you to come up with the rest.

It has always been a dream of mine to encounter such a pristine ecosystem and with an opportunity just inches away, I implore you to help me realize this dream. Robert Swan once said, “The Greatest Threat to Our Planet Is the Belief That Someone Else Will Save It” and I am confident that with everyone’s help, the goal of this expedition can be made attainable and Together we can inspire Change where it truly matters!

Thank you for your support as I embark on this incredible journey. I greatly appreciate it and so does our planet!
