We were blessed with an incredible support team…
American Society of Civil Engineers
(While visiting the State Department)
You followed us for a reason. You believe that the water crisis is a solvable problem, is a critical issue, and that it is NOT okay that a child dies every 15 seconds from water borne illness. Your support has brought us to here…
This week our team’s starting the next part of the climb. We went straight to the UN Foundation in DC, prepared for a talk with Congress, ventured to Capitol Hill and asked hard questions.
We think there is an answer, a solution, and we believe we’re on our way there.
This Sunday (March 14th) on MTV at 9/8 central (http://www.mtv.com/shows/summit_on_the_summit/series.jhtml) we’re going to relive every step of the climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro.
We did something BIG to bring BIG attention - now we get to share it with you. Please tune in…and beyond that organize your own tweet up (@SOTSK) or viewing party and interact with us during the film. RSVP here: http://ow.ly/1giNe
We’re grateful for your support. We’re hopeful for a solution. And we’re inspired to get there with your help!
Over the coming days, I’ll post columns from the remaining climbers sharing why they joined SOTSK and what they took away. I’ll post about our guides, porters, and our process behind-the-scenes that captured and distributed photos, video and words from the mountain. And I’ll also post some more pictures and highlights that I didn’t have time to share during the climb. Once I’ve finished the recap, I’ll announce what’s next for this blog as we transition from creating awareness to creating action with all of your help!
We’ve said good by to Kili and are en route back to the United States. We will be posting recaps of the summit, climber thoughts and more pictures throughout the weekend…. so stay tuned!
