Greetings Vegan Kilimanjaro Support Group!
Wow, ranging in age from 18 to 70, we now have 16 climbers from the U.S., Canada, Norway, & South Africa! And there are others waiting to make their deposits and join us.
While the initial goal was 6-12 climbers, the guide company has hosted charity climbs for up to 30 people, so we’re being optimistic and shooting for that—please continue to spread the word!
Beneath the introductory/recruitment blurb and photos is a table with our shining faces and bio data. Beneath the team table is the (draft) banner we’ll be unfurling on the summit. Below the banner is a “Donate” button that links to PCRM.
Currently, the PCRM donate page has generic gift amounts. I thought it might be more enticing to prospective donors if certain dollar amounts were linked to specific items or procedures, e.g., $25 buys one blood test; $100 funds one physical exam; $500 buys one microscope, etc. (I’m only guessing on the amounts/items).
Our PCRM contact, Erica Springer, is working with medical office staff on generating some actual amounts/items. In the meantime, people can still donate. Erica put in $5 to test the system, which worked fine.
