Kilmanjaro For Kids (Tuscaloosa City Schools)
This June, I will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the tallest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world. Although summiting does not require great technical climbing skills, walking to 19,341 feet above sea level is no joke. The height of that mountain is very similar to the total amount needed to bring every library in my school district up to the national “exemplary” standard: about $1.9M. I’m paying all the expenses for my trek up Kilimanjaro. I invite you to sponsor me. Let's raise $19,341 for the school libraries of Tuscaloosa City Schools. That’s 1% of what they need. It could be one small step for literacy in my town and one giant trek up a mountain for me.
Read more about this project on my blog (https://ezigbo.com/2018/05/06/kili4kids/), share and invite others to participate on social media, and use the hashtag #Kili4Kids. Watch for updates between now and June 23 when I will be taking off. Loads of pictures and video from the trek will be posted after I come down from the mountain.
Thank you for supporting our kids!
