Everest 2013 for Congo Launch Event! San Francisco

Thank you to everyone that joined us for our launch event on May 30th! Your support means so much to us! 

What a wonderful way to kick off our Everest 2013 for Congo campaign in San Francisco! Thank you to Mejita and Campari, for helping sponsor our event! What a great venue and yummy margaritas! Also special thanks to Elayne Doughty for sharing her experience working with VDAY in DRC- your words moved us all and your work is inspiring.

The aim of the event was to formally launch our Everest 2013 for Congo campaign, let folks know why we are climbing for women of Congo, and start building our community of supporters. It was a huge success and we are so grateful and excited to move forward on this incredible journey for an incredible cause!

So for those of you who were not able to be there here is a summary :)

In March 2013, Georgina Miranda will make her second attempt at scaling the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest, with one goal in mind of reaching the top of the world to bring support and awareness for the women of DRC.

By supporting this campaign your tax-deductible donation will go directly to V-DAY and International Medical Corps. All funds collected will be equally split by these two organizations, which are both 501(C) (3) registered. International Medical Corps' tax identification number: 95-3949646 and V-Day's tax identification number: 94-3389430.

CLIMB TAKE ACTION’s MISSION (started in 2008): To raise $2.2 million in support for International Medical Corps and VDAY and to spread awareness about the worst sexual violence in the world in order to promote sustainable change for the women of Congo.

Why We Support Women of Congo!

Thank you for learning more about why we climb! We hope you will join our efforts and support the amazing work that International Medical Corps and VDAY are doing for women in Congo!

Since founding Climb Take Action in 2008, I am constantly inspired by the strength and courage of the women of Congo and those that are working diligently to make their lives a little better. The case of sexual violence in DRC is the worst in the world. No woman should experience such violence.

Reach out to us if you would like to get involved ! We also have a few spots open for people that would like to join us for part of the Everest journey and trek to Everest Base Camp @ 17,500 ft and raise funds and awareness for the cause!


Much Love and Thanks,
