MountainChild USA Launch Party

So many of you know that i work for a non-profit organization called MountainChild. We work to CARRY HOPE to impoverished children living in the Himalayas.

(Yes, those are the mountains home to Mt. Everest. ) 

Almost a year ago i found myself trekking in Nepal with MountainChild and got to see first hand some of the great needs in that area of the world. Needs for improved health and access to clean water. Needs for accessible and culturally fitting education. Needs for preventative awareness to protect children and women from the schemes of sex trafficking and restoration programs to rebuild victims. And lastly, needs for improved farming techniques through environmental education and innovation to prevent child labor and to increase efficient crop yield.

These are the 5 Core Issues that the MountainChild agenda is built from. There is much work to be done... but MountainChild is moving deep into those mountains and getting it done.

At the center of it all is a greater Hope. And that is something i can stand behind!

So, here's why i write all of this. In an effort to raise greater awareness and funds for the work being done out in Nepal, MountainChild is extending its presence into North America. As we are able to share this story with more people, we are hopeful to extend our impact to the kids in Nepal. I have had the privilege of planning and preparing for that official Launch Party... and well, it's right around the corner.

Saturday September 24th, 2011 is MountainChild USA's Launch Party. It will be held in Laguna Beach at the Aliso Creek Inn at 6:00pm. This event will be an evening of great celebration! And also a prime opportunity to learn more about MountainChild, humanitarian work being done in the Himalayas, and how you can get involved-- and quite possibly visit!

I'm giving away a free ticket to this event! Dinner and entertainment in Laguna Beach... for FREE!  Yes. Free. Come on now, you're interested. I know you are!

And winning it will be easy. Here's how it works:
