“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success." – Henry Ford
Big things are on the horizon for MountainChild in 2019 and we know great success is found in collaboration. As we step into a new year we are very mindful of the faithful partners who have been with us from the beginning and those who have stayed over the years-- we’re grateful for you! We know success, for the good and hope of those living in the most hard-to-reach, impoverished villages in the Himalayas, is only found as we continue to work together. There are 5 ways you can partner with us this year-- here's how!
1. VISIT NEPAL
In 2017, Nepal was listed as the #1 Travel Destination by Lonely Planet. In 2018, 1.1 Million tourists visited Nepal. And it’s no surprise why. The Himalayas offer an experience like no other. For the mountain and adventure enthusiasts looking to visit the wonder of Nepal, you can travel with confidence knowing you’re making a lasting impact on the lives of people living in the Himalayas. Through our trusted partnership with MCATT (MountainChild Adventure Travel and Trekking), groups and individuals can now visit Nepal-- with both performance and purpose in mind. When you visit Nepal through MCATT you can entrust your trekking adventure to some of the best in the business. But most importantly, you can be confident that your travel is making a positive impact. 100% of MCATT profit funds MountainChild humanitarian initiatives. That, my friends, is how you travel well!
2. GIVE MONTHLY
Did you know it only costs $60 a month to fund the education + room and board for one child at one of our partnership schools? Did you know it only costs $50 for a clean water filter that will provide safe drinking water for a family for up to 10 years? Monthly giving is powerful. A commitment of $60 a month will provide education for a kid for an entire year! That’s a life and a family, and a village changed for good. Fifty dollars a month will provide 12 filters over the course of a year. That’s 12 households with access to clean water -- for a decade! Would you consider giving monthly in 2019? You can personalize your giving to directly impact issues and projects that are most important to you. A year from now, you’ll look back and know that you’ve played an integral part in carrying hope to the Himalayas!
3. SHARE MOUNTAINCHILD
The mission of MountainChild is to raise awareness, resources and financial aid for humanitarian work carried out in the Himalayas. That humanitarian aid is focused on those that are the most remote and have the least access to medical assistance, clean water, education and are at most risk of child labor and human trafficking. What does that mean? We’ve got a big task ahead of us. We can’t do it alone. And we don’t want to! But we need your help. Would you share MountainChild with your circles of influence? Would you talk to your friends about us? Would you ask your church or business to partner with us? If you haven’t already done so, would you follow us on social media and consider sharing our posts? There is power in numbers-- and we’re looking to make a big impact in Nepal in 2019.
There are many ways you can get involved with MountainChild right where you are! If you are local to Colorado-- there are several opportunities to serve locally in our North American MC Office. There are opportunities to work during the week at the office, volunteer at local awareness events, or to help at our annual Run4Hope. For those not in Colorado, do you have a skill that would be beneficial to MountainChild? Do you have skills in video editing? Animation or other creative skills? Do you have event coordination or fundraising experience? Are you a speaker or blogger or podcast host? We would LOVE to showcase your strengths as we work together to carry hope to the Himalayas. You can send us an email to [email protected] and we’ll connect with you about volunteering.
5. MOUNTAINCHILD 2019 RUN4HOPE
Our 5th Annual Run4Hope is just a few months away! Have you registered for it? June 22, 2019 hundreds of people around the world will be running and walking-- in Centennial, Colorado and abroad-- to raise awareness and financial aid for MountainChild’s humanitarian projects in the Himalayas. If you’ve not committed yet, would you join us? We are looking for representatives in all 50 US states to run or walk. Could you get a little group together to run/walk with you? Are you international? Could you impress us with where you take your virtual run? Your influence is one of our greatest assets and if YOU love MountainChild-- we’re certain your friends and family will too! Would you help us spread awareness of MountainChild this year at our Run4Hope? You can visit http://bit.ly/MCRun4Hope2019 for more information or email [email protected]!
Thanks for championing MountainChild and following what we do! We’re excited for 2019 and we look forward to connecting with you. For further questions about joining us, please email [email protected]
