I was 18 years old the first time I went backpacking. It was an alternative freshman orientation to college. My dad said I would need a whistle and I laughed. Why would I need one of those in the woods? Fast forward a few weeks and what’s the first thing they gave me? You got it. A whistle. Well that and a compass along with a slew of other new accessories. It wasn’t until many years later hearing this story retold that I truly thought about the tools needed to be successful in the back country. How to navigate your way through God’s creation is easy, if you have the right tools and some guidance.

After many years in the back country and an adventure filled life, I moved to Houston. I didn’t find out about Child Legacy International until March of 2019 when I heard Mike Navolio speak about a Clean Water Climb and the impact that they have on bringing the people in Malawi clean water. I couldn’t wait to hear more, and I left the service as soon as it was over to go speak to him. Just like the compass was needed for me to navigate the backcountry, the people of Malawi just need help with the tools to get clean water.

I’m excited to share that I have committed to the Everest Base Camp Clean Water Climb in November 2019. I hope you will partner with me in bringing clean water to thousands of people in Malawi. My goal is to raise enough money to repair 4 water wells. All donations go directly to Child Legacy International as I’ll be paying my own way to do the climb. I’m starting off the donations to Child Legacy by personally donating $1,250 which is enough to repair 1 water well. Will you donate to help me fix 3 more? All deductions are tax-deductible, and Child Legacy is rated 4 stars with a 99.82 with Charity Navigator, so you know your donation is in good hands.
