We're Michal and Louise - "The Travellers Two" - and on 1st August we're trying to summit the highest peak in Western Europe: Mont Blanc. As optimistic as we usually are, we thought it was going to be a walk in the park... but after committing, we realised that it requires more preparation and skill than we thought.
One thing that would help us get to the top is knowing that we're doing something good as a result. We've been involved with International Care Ministries for almost ten years and we have seen the change that ICM makes in thousands of lives in the Philippines.
We're fundraising to deliver 500,000 meals of anti-malnutrition food to the homes of the ultrapoor in the Philippines. ICM receives food donations from three charities in the USA; we just have to get the meals to the Philippines. Partnerships with shipping companies allow us to get each meal to the Philippines for just US$0.04.
The conditions up there are not as extreme as on top of the world, but it will be freezing even in the middle of the summer. So we're gonna go up... and we're not coming down until we reach our goal ;)
Stay tuned for updates!
