The dictionary’s definition of the word “philanthropy” is: “the effort or inclination to increase the well-being of mankind, as by charitable aid or donations”. Caring for the public good and demonstrating and awareness of our obligation to our fellow man, disregarding every barrier, decidedly benefits the giver as much as the recipient. The truth is that every single one of us can make the world a better place, no matter how small or big the act of kindness is. For this reason, Chimu, an Austin, Texas native and philanthropist, has founded the Inti Raymi Fund.
WHY CLIMB MOUNT EVEREST?
“Because you don’t know if you can, unless you try”. Why donate to your favorite cause through the Inti Raymi Fund? To show your support of charitable giving, to climb along with him and lend your voice to this cause.
Chimu is climbing Mt. Everest in May 2015 to bring attention to the benefits of charitable giving. By attracting focus onto those philanthropies to which he, himself, has given his financial support, he hopes to stimulate public awareness of our global responsibilities. Our goal is to raise $250,000 in donations for the non-profit community. Chimu has personally matched over $50,000 of the first $50,000 donated.
