Avela Foundation + Smile Foundation Everest Base Camp Trek 2018

Avela Foundation + Smile Foundation Everest Base Camp Trek 2018

Personal message

I am climbing to Everest Base Camp in May 2018 and raising funds for the Avela Foundation and the Smile Foundation (Both incredible NGO's).

I've paid for this challenge in full already, and I have pledged to raise $5364 for the Avela Foundation, – That's $1 for every meter above sea level to reach Base Camp.

I am asking for your support by donating any amount you can to help us change the lives of so many innocent children (Burn survivors). 

Your donation is beyond greatly appreciated.

The trek to Everest Base Camp will be mentally and physically challenging, but nothing compared to the challenges these burn survivors face each day. 

Thank you so much for supporting these little cherubs and for helping me reach my goal!
