Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is the opportunity of a lifetime. I refer to it as the best worst thing I’ve ever done because I struggled so much on my journey. That struggle was worth every second as it set me on the path that led me to the person I am today.
What if you could climb Mount Kilimanjaro and change not only your life, but the lives of children in Tanzania? With Omaze, you have that opportunity.

Mount Kilimanjaro Memories
One of my most vivid memories of the climb was summit night. While most of that night was putting one foot in front of the other and listening to the, tink, tink, tink of my hiking poles hitting the rocks each time I took a step, I’ll never forget the sight I saw when I stopped and looked up towards the summit. Since the goal is to get to the summit as the sun is rising, everyone has their headlamps on. When I took my gaze off of the ground in front of me and tilted my head towards the summit I remember seeing the light from the headlamps in front of us curving their way up the mountain like a long snake.
Kilimanjaro also pushed me to my physical and mental limits. Because of my time on the mountain I know how strong I am and how far I can push myself. There were plenty of tears and day when I wanted to quit, but I didn’t. As a result, I’m stronger for it.
You know I’m all about making the world a better place - it’s the Girl Scout in me - so when Omaze contacted me to assist with promoting a chance to win a trip to climb Mount Kilimanjaro I jumped at it!

The Amani Children’s Home
All of the money raised goes to the Amani Children’s Home. The goal of the Amani Children’s Home is to reduce the number of street kids in Tanzania by providing a nurturing place for homeless children to heal, grow, and learn.
Children in Tanzania end up on the streets for so many different reasons from the poverty, neglect, sexual abuse, or loss of parents to HIV/AIDS. The Amani Children’s Home gives street kids a second chance providing them with a place to live, an education, and when possible reuniting children with extended family members.
