As one of my projects this week, I've been keeping up with the Climb Up event at Kilimanjaro. The team has been updating me through text messages and emails that I have been posting on the Climb Up blog. It's amazing to think that Eric, on top of Kilimanjaro in Africa could communicate with me, all the way in small town Pennsylvania. Thank you technology!
In a way, it feels like I have been on the journey with the team. I was able to share in their experiences and understand some of their emotions as they made their way with that difficult climb. It's important to remember that and event like this has such a vast impact. It doesn't merely effect the people participating, but family, friends, and especially the many children it will help save. Even though the children are on another continent, we are so much closer to helping them than we realize. By helping track this event, I've seen how people can come together to help others all over the world.
