The mountains have always had a special place in my heart. The highest peak in northwest Mt. Rainier had always astonished me. It appears to be omnipresent as it is always visible no matter where you go in Seattle area. I would be driving to work and looking at Mt. Rainier from the freeway always in awe!
I have finally got a chance to summit Mt. Rainier this year with Team Asha. I am also attempting to summit other mountains in Washington state like Mt. Adams, Mt. Baker, and Mt. St. Helens. What makes this climb even more special is that I have also committed to raise money for Ashawhich is a non-political and non-profit organization catalyzing socio-economic change in India through education. Asha means HOPE in Hindi language.
This is my opportunity to raise funds for under-privileged children who are in desperate need of education. You can get more details about the list of projects for Asha here. We would really appreciate if you could help us out in this mission by donating any amount you feel appropriate.
How can you help?
My commitment is to raise minimum of $1500 for Asha and I need the support of my friends and co-workers. Your encouragement for my efforts by donating for the cause will be a great motivation. You can help me with this cause right now by clicking the donate now button. No amount is too small or too big, $10 or $100, it all adds up to provide a bright future for a child in need. To put these numbers into perspective, $20-$30s will fund one month of a child’s education and living expense in India.
To clarify, you are not financing my hike. I have paid my dues to guide services. This raise is very important for a cause, the cause we all climbers are dedicating our climb to. Donate towards my Mt. Rainier climb and 100% of every dollar that you donate goes directly to “Asha for Education”
I really appreciate your help. Thanks!
