Received my Billy Goat jewelry today…I absolutely love it. I will wear it as my Badge of Honor…thank-you, Happy Trails!
Hooray! This piece is special in my shop because the goat is modeled on the logo for Expedition Everest, a campaign to raise $500,000 for education for East Africa’s most desperate children.
For each mountain goat necklace purchased, $10 will be donated to the cause, which is detailed below. Great people doing good, exciting work… all the way to the top of Everest, forpetessake!
About Expedition Everest
Expedition Everest is a campaign to raise $500,000 for Flying Kites, an organization dedicated to providing world-class education to East Africa’s most desperate children.
The Expedition will also seek to put the first Kenyan on the summit of the world’s tallest mountain. Accompanied by Toby Storie-Pugh, founder and executive director of Flying Kites, and Mike Chambers, director of the Adventure Challenges program, the team will attempt to summit Mt. Everest via the South Col in the spring of 2014.
In addition to raising funds to complete the Flying Kites campus, Mike, Toby and their Kenyan teammate (to be selected) aim to set an example for the children of Flying Kites that any goal is attainable if you dare to start and are determined to finish.
