Hike For Peace ‘Half Dome to Kilimanjaro’

April 29, 2010 at 10:26 pm 1 comment

I am training to hike up Half Dome, in Yosemite National Park, at night to raise money for ‘Global Friends on The Group’. I am looking for Sponsors 🙂

Global Friends On The Go

In keeping with the mission of the Kids For Peace organization (see below), we are raising funds to create Global Friends on the Go-a Kids for Peace program in which children make friends near and far as they journey to other cultures. Whether cross-continent or cross-town, Kids for Peace travel to meet new friends and have meaningful exchanges. Our first cross-continent exchange will take place this summer. The journey begins on a night time hike to Half-Dome at Yosemite and will culminate on a trek to Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

How you can help Shivani & Kids For Peace… There are 3 options for supporting Shivani, and helping raising funds for this important program:

1. Sponsor Shivani’s Hike

The hike will support Kids for Peace children as they interact with children in orphanages, schools and Maasai villages. This is sure to be a valuable contribution towards peace, compassion and respect as we forge friendships and experience the rhythm of life in East Africa.

We are forging a path for peace through education using environmental stewardship as a model so that our children can grow up together in a kind and loving world. In fact, we think it’s so important that we’re willing to put our feet behind it and hike all the way up Half-Dome.

No amount is too small (or big!).

Go to our website www.halfdometokilimanjaro.com

Please mention you are sponsoring ‘Shivani Parmar’.

2. Become a ‘Featured’ Sponsor

Become a ‘Featured’ Sponsor at the $100+ level and get a special mention from the top of Half Dome and be featured in ‘Shivani’s Hike For Peace Half Dome video’.

Go to our website www.halfdometokilimanjaro.com

Please mention you are sponsoring ‘Shivani Parmar’

3. Hike with Shivani & Kids For Peace

You are invited to “Hike for Peace” on May 22nd-23rd at Half-Dome in Yosemite National Park. The hike begins at 9:30pm and will culminate on the summit of Half-Dome at sunrise.
Along the way, we will stop for inspirational interludes, joyful songs and sending wishes to our sisters and brothers in Africa. The hike will be lead by veteran adventurer, Jesse Gros and his intrepid team. Due to the limited number of permits available by the National Park Service, this is a rare opportunity to hike Half-Dome! In fact, all necessary permits to hike the summit of Half-Dome are sold out! You can invite your friends, too.

Sign up at our website www.halfdometokilimanjaro.com

Please mention you have been referred by ‘Yogi Parmar’.

We appreciate your support and value your friendship.
