As many of you know, when I was 17 years old, I was diagnosed with a life threatening medical condition. One of the results of that challenging time in my life is that I became passionate about helping Make-A-Wish foundation. I have now been a volunteer on Kauai for over 7 years and have had the privilege of meeting and working with the most amazing kids and their families. I have been so fortunate to be a part of so many magical experiences that I want to do everything I can to make these dreams come true for as many children facing a life threatening medical condition as possible.

A few years ago, I summited Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain at 20,000 feet, and met several people that were climbing to raise money for different charities. All I could think was why am I not doing this to make a difference in someone else's life? An opportunity to bring two of my greatest passions together would be my own dream come true. So I've decided to climb to Everest base camp in May to raise money for our amazing kids here in Hawaii that are waiting for their wishes to be granted.

The trip is fully funded by myself, but I'm kindly asking you to join me in raising money for an awesome cause. 100% of your donation will go directly to Make-A-Wish foundation, which directly goes to our keiki here in Hawaii. So while I climb for days on end, sleep in below freezing temperatures with just a sleeping bag, and go several weeks with no bathing and no toilets, I ask you to please help me make this worthwhile and be part of the magic that will grant a child's once in a lifetime wish. Whether you can give $20 or $50 or $100, I promise you it will make a difference and bring a smile to a child's face and spread some magic. You can give as little or as much as your heart desires. Please be a part of the magic with me and help these amazing kids' dreams come true!
