A story about a girl who, on a whim, decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro for charity.

Infograph: Why I’m climbing Kilimanjaro this summer, who I’m climbing for, and why you should donate. 

I’m heading on over to Adventure HQ today to look at gear for my trip in four months (read: I’m shitting bricks and need to know how broke I’ll be when I get back). Some wonderful members of the community have already expressed interest in loaning me some of their unused equipment for the trip, which is great! This means I’ll have more resources to donate to the RTLA. If any of you have some of the below items on hand (not underwear, thanks!), and wouldn’t mind helping a sister out by loaning them to me, (or Azher from Flea 4 Charity) for a couple of weeks, I’d be more than grateful.

All the help I can get is welcome, and there’s even a donate box on the right-hand sidebar. Remember, my target is to raise USD 10,000 for The Right to Live Association.

:)
