Mountaneering, climbing and good cause!

I have not realized how hard it would be to raise money before I committed to it! wow! what a surprise -- people don't really like to give away money :)))


So, for those of you who don't know: I am trying to raise $3,500 to do this climb. The money go to the charity organization who’s goal is to provide similar opportunities for the underprivileged city kids -- to give them the opportunity to get out in the nature. You can read more about the organization here: http://www.summitforsomeone.org/v2/aboutus.php. And as part of the program I will be climbing Grand Teton in Teton National Park, Wyoming. The whole trip to the top is 4 days: 2 days of strenuous hiking and a day climbing, like real climbing with ropes and stuff at elevation of 13,000ft! I am extremely excited about this climb, and everyone I talk to about it can't say enough about the beauty of that place! I'm ready to go now! Except I am in the hole with the money and need any help you can give me....

All donations are tax-deductible. The donors will receive a letter within 90 days of their donations with the tax deduction information. My donation page is https://ssl.charityweb.net/bcm/summit07/svetlanakhaykina.htm

So, there have to be people around with their own businesses who are trying to reduce their taxes... hmmm... How do I make it interesting for them? All big organizations and individuals for whom a little donation can go a long way! Anyone?

I am looking for people and organizations that can donate to my climb and get tax deductions,
and I am looking for ideas for different ways to raise money...

I'd appreciate any help, any amount of money anyone can donate and any ideas you may have for raising money! I will really appreciate your help! If you have any questions about the program or me or anything, you can visit the site, reply to this post, or send me e-mail at semicvet@gmail.com
