The sun may have set on our #Kilimanjaro climb, but thanks to your generous donations and the hard work of the good people at @charitywater, a new day is dawning for people in the #Sahel region of #Africa. We surpassed our goal of $19,340, and as of this morning, we’ve collectively raised $20,155, meaning that 575 people will now get access to clean, safe #water. I can’t say enough how appreciative I am of all the generosity and support, and how proud I am of our Kilimanjaro team!

This #Kilimanjaro climb was my sixth on the mountain, but first time on the #Rongai Route. An incredible route, few people, and we opted to spend a couple nights acclimating here at #Mawenzi Tarn Camp. Beautiful camp and setting under brilliant stars and the serrated peak of Mawenzi. #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer #water @charitywater

Tomorrow morning we begin climbing for #water up #Kilimanjaro. We’ll be climbing via a route I’ve not been on, the #Rongai Route from the north side; it’ll be great to see a new side of this beautiful mountain. And, huge thanks to ask so far who have supported our goal of raising $19,340 for @charitywater – as of this writing, we’re at $13,761.74! Every penny is going directly to #charitywater and their work in the #Sahel. Onward!

Missing these two already, not to mention my amazing wife, @wendebvalentine. It gets harder to leave on trips with each passing year, knowing that in my absence irreplaceable moments are passing, never to coke again. But, on the bright side, I’m off on another great fundraising expedition, this time to #Kilimanjaro to raise money for @charitywater with a great team. We’re hoping to raise $19,340 for charity:water’s #Sahel campaign, which would bring the #Challenge21 total to over $300,000 raised for safe #water and #sanitation. I’ll miss Wende and the kids terribly, but console myself, as I reminded them on the way to school this morning, that in the words of George #Mallory in 1921 on #Everest: “Goodnight and great love to you. We see the same stars. ” #charitywater #liveyouradventure
