Katie and Teddy for Avela

Personal message

We are off again to a very high mountain to help raise funds for the little children with burn injuries in South Africa.

As you know we did Everest Base Camp last year and raised over $150,000 to help our mom's foundation in South Africa called Avela.

This year we are doing Mount Kilimanjaro. The highest mountain in Africa and 1 of the 7 summits in the world (5,895 m- 19,341 ft) Very Cool. !!!! and very challenging .......

So, this year Teddy will not be able to join my mom and I but he is helping us by raising funds with me.

I already paid for the trip to go. We are just asking you to help us raise funds to buy a laser machine to help children with burn injuries with their scarring and the cost is $150,000

Thanks so much.

Love you

Katie and Teddy
