Kili Climb for Kids
You may have heard the news: some folks from Team World Vision are fixing to climb a mountain.
Yes, you heard that right – A REAL LIFE MOUNTAIN.
From June 16-24, they’ll travel to Tanzania to pit their wits against Mount Kilimanjaro in order to raise funds and awareness for our No Child For Sale campaign. A little geography lesson: Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest mountain, standing at a menacing 19,341 ft above sea level (gulp!). Oh, and did we mention it’s also a volcano?
Thankfully they’ve allowed the Artist Collective staff to opt out of participation!
We are incredibly proud of them though, and we’re so excited about our Celebrity partners who have decided to join Team World Vision on this journey. One of them is Rick Campanelli, renowned TV Personality and all-around legend. Rick has been involved with lots of stuff with World Vision over the years, but we’re pretty sure this is his most ambitious undertaking. Fortunately Rick is in fantastic shape, and we don’t doubt his ability to rise to the occasion.
Rick collected some of his thoughts on the challenging, yet important, task before him, which you can read below. Then, head over to the Kili Climb Homepage to see how you can get involved. They’ve got an IndieGoGo page setup to handle the fundraising that you’re going to want to check out. There’s incredible perks for donating featuring Rick, as well as our other celeb. friends who are going on the trip: JD Scott of the famed Scott Brothers, Olympic Medalist Cheryl Bernard, and Youtube sensation Corey Vidal.
