MT. EVEREST – Mountain Climbing Fundraiser for 67 Other Charities

Austin, USA

Every 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.

Chimu attempted climbing Mt. Everest in May 2015 to bring attention to the Inti Raymi Fund and the Diversity of Sharing.  By attracting focus onto those philanthropies to which he, himself, has given his financial support, he hoped to stimulate public awareness of our global responsibilities.

Through this climbing attempt, Chimu raised over $185,000 into the below mentioned organizations.  Chimu personally contributed over $52,000 to all of the charities shown below.

Unfortunately, the National Disaster which occurred on 4/15/15 of the Nepal Earthquake and immediately following Avalanches at Everest Base Camp canceled the climbing Season for Chimu and the other teammates for the 2015 season.  19 died at Base Camp, with over 50 critically injured and roughly 10,000 mortalities in Nepal.  Immediately after the Avalanche, Chimu along with all survivors at BaseCamp, helped with the triage of the critically injured along with the evacuation of the deceased.

This Climb for Your Cause spawned yet another project, after the quake and disasters mentioned above.  You can see what we’re doing about the disaster in our Passion Project called Earthquake Disaster Rebuilding – Nepal in our list of Projects Tab. If this resonates with you please share and we’ll get 100% of your donation into the field.  We’re heading back to Nepal early June, 2015.

The Mission of the Inti Raymi Fundraiser

Our mission was to spread awareness by introducing you to the funds’ diverse and growing global portfolio of organizations and ongoing projects to which we have given our support and to encourage you to choose your own cause  and make a gift. The Inti Raymi Fund matched other people’s donations into their favorite causes simply to promote sharing regardless of which non-profit organization benefits.  Isn’t this really what sharing is about?

If this message resonates with you and you are still interested in making a donation, how about a Nepali Relief Fund?
