Dear Friends – Welcome to my EVEREST blog!
— > Go directly to my EVEREST CLIMB+CHARITY VIDEO
In April/May 2013 I completed the challenge to climb the World’s highest mountain, Mount Everest (8,848m), summiting at 6.15am on May 21. The following morning, May 22, I also climbed Lhotse, 8,516m and the World’s4th highest peak, becoming the first Swede to do the Everest-Lhotse back-to-back double ascent.
In parallel with my climbing challenge – and continuing after the expedition – I’m also fundraising for a charity called dZi Foundation to raise at least USD27,000 in order to build a school in a remote and poor village in Nepal, to enable disadvantaged children to receive an education.
On this website, I give a background to my quest, my preparation, the dZi Foundation charity, and the Deep Jyoti school project, as well as updates from the expedition and charity project.
I hope you can be part of helping underprivileged children in Nepal to receive an education – by making a generous donation to this charity fundraising.
I’m hopeful that we will significantly EXCEED the $27,000 fundraising target for the Deep Jyoti School – the dZi Foundation does fantastic work, and there are so many other projects they could undertake with additional funds.
Please refer to the menu tabs above to navigate around the site.
Ps. I describe the charity donation procedure on the “DONATIONS“ page.
NOTE: To be clear – All of the funds donated via the dZi Foundation or through the JustGiving page are going 100% to the charity – none goes to finance my climbing expedition. In addition to my expedition costs, I have also personally made a donation of GBP5,000 (~ USD7,800) to the charity project.
