Recently I volunteered for a charity group, (http://www.vso.org.uk) which raises money to send human resources (doctors, teachers, construction workers, etc) to East Africa to help impoverished children.

I have worked on a number of charities before and this is the first time I am taking a lead role for my segment. My goals for this is two fold:

1) To raise at least $7,500 which goes to the charity. This money will be pooled with other donations to help train, send, and keep skilled workers helping the children
2) Out of my own personal funds I will travel to Tanzania, meet with some of the children and volunteers to see the work they are doing. To culminate the trip, and symbolize reaching the fundraising goal on Monday, September 9th, 2012, I will raise my hands while standing on the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world, after climbing over 19,000 feet with fellow team members from all over the world.

What I ask of you is also two fold:

1) If you can, proceed to this link and help by donating http://www.justgiving.com/ClimbToTheSky
2) Share the above link, as well as my FB group page with people that you know so they too will hopefully donate and share the link: http://www.facebook.com/groups/289957841053638/

I appreciate you taking the time to read this and helping support my cause.

Best

The linked site has donation amounts in pounds sterling. Is there another site which speaks dollars?
