Hi Everyone,

We are Mike and Gail Clearman. We are very excited and honored to be a part of Child Legacy International’s 2019 Everest Base Camp Clean Water Climb! The purpose of this climb is to raise money that will go directly to providing clean drinking water to the people of Malawi, Africa.

A little about us…. We have been married for over 42 years and have one amazing daughter and son in law and one precious grandson. We love to travel, explore the outdoors and spending time with family and friends. Originally from Alabama, we have called Houston Texas home for the past 30 years.

We first became introduced to Child Legacy International through Mike’s work at Southwestern Energy. Mike and Mike Navolio were colleagues at Southwestern Energy for several years. Mike Navolio’s passion and devotion to bring fresh water to the people of Malawi led us to support this amazing mission through donations to his previous clean water climbs. Now we are proud to be a part of the first Everest Base Camp Clean Water Climb.

We will be paying 100% of our expenses associated with the Everest Base Camp Climb so all donations will go directly to providing desperately needed clean water to the people of Malawi. We will also donate $2,500 which will cover the cost of repairing two water wells ($1,250 provides an entire village of approximately 2,000 people with clean water). All donations made are tax deductible. We have set a fundraising goal of $7,500.

So why are we doing this? The answer is really very simple. To us, there is no greater purpose in life than helping others in need. After much prayer and thought, we knew it was time to commit and play a more active part in improving the lives of the people of Malawi.

We hope you will consider supporting our fundraising effort for Child Legacy International as we trek to Everest Base Camp.

Thank You!!
