As some of you know, my Everest and Denali climbs were funded privately by a very generous company who wanted no promotion bar me raising as much awareness and as many funds for children's mental health charity Place2Be and I did just that.
Since September 2014 we, yes a HUGE 'WE', have raised over £25,000 for Place2Be as well as raising awareness for children's mental health and mental health in general.
With 5 of the 7 summits completed, namely Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Mt Elbrus, Denali and Everest I 'just' have Carstensz Pyramid and Mt Vinson to complete. This year Place2Be celebrate their 25th anniversary and I aim to complete the last 2 of the 7 by the end of December with everything crossed and a fair wind blowing, to maximising publicity for this amazing charity. I am now flying solo with funding these last 2 expeditions. Without the expeditions, the fundraising doesn’t come in and vice versa so I’m 100% going for it this year!
I love simplicity in life and ‘JO’S MIGHTY 90’ is a very simple way to raise a possible £55,000 of life changing funds for Place2Be as well as getting me to the end and completing the last of the 7 summits, hopefully becoming the 10th British woman out of 450 or so climbers worldwide.
There are 4 levels to the Mighty 90:
Platinum - £1000 Gold - £500 Silver - £250 Bronze - £20
Unfortunately HMRC rules state that I cannot give rewards or prizes to anyone donating who offers Gift Aid. If I do, they will take away the Gift Aid from my campaign so I am thinking up ways to give back for your generosity next year. Watch this space!! HOWEVER! Everyone who donates over £20 will come with me to the last 2 of the 7 summits (Carstensz deadline is 20th September) - see 7 summits banner details below!
Please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07711 416115 if you would like to be one of the 90 legends or head straight to the combined fundraising page to make a public or anonymous donation - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/josmighty90
Updated 24/09/19. Will you be next?
There are other ways in which you can be involved and help support either my goal to complete the 7 summits and to raise vital funds for Place2Be:
7 SUMMITS BANNER - by popping £20 or more into my JustGiving page you’ll automatically be added to the 7 summits banner for Vinson. The banner is now complete for Carstensz Pyramid and I’ll add strips at the top and bottom for the last of the 7 summits. Simply send me a selfie taken on your mobile and I’ll take you on a little journey to finish the 7!
Donate £500 to my JustGiving page and I’ll add your company logo to the host of amazing companies already emblazoned on Bimble, my adventure van. Send me your logo and I’ll do the rest.
