For the Love of Africa



As I write this I am on my way home from Tanzania and our incredible trip to climb Kilimanjaro to help raise awareness for kids that are forced into dirty and degrading jobs and not allowed  any sort of childhood. There is something magical about Africa that I just can’t explain. I fell in love with the people, the landscape and that mountain, Kilimanjaro!

The trip was life-changing, I left a small piece of my heart there and hope that I can over these next 8 blogs share with you our experience through videos, photos and words.

Thanks for following and stay tuned for our 8 days of Kiliclimb4kids!
