Cami’s Climb – Climb Mount Glacier in New Zealand
Welcome and thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
My name is Cami Simpson and I am 13 years old. I’m an 8th grader at the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), Malaysia. My family and I moved here in July 2012 because of my dad’s job. Every year since I was 5 years old, I have done some kind of challenge to raise money for a charity. I usually raise money for an organization called Romanian Childrens Relief (RCR), or ShelterBox, an organization that helps disastrous victims somewhere in the world.
Last year on March 27th, 2013, I climbed Mount Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia. This was a two-day climb the tallest mountain in South-East Asia. At 4095m, it was a tough trek/climb but I’m glad I did it. This year I decided to climb the Fox Glacier in New Zealand during the last week of June. This is the longest glacier in New Zealand at 13km. It moves 2 meters a day and has an 8000-foot elevation change starting at 10000 feet!
I learned about the Romanian children 6 years ago when I was living in England. My family and I visited these children in Bucharest, Romania during the summer of 2008. I saw how the money I had raised could help these children, and I want to continue to help them again this year. These children have no home and no family. Many of them are sick and need money for health care. They don’t even get clean diapers and clean clothes as often as they should because supplies are limited. No one deserves to live like this, and have his or her dreams and imagination limited.
Please consider helping these poor children who cannot help themselves by donating below through my website: it is simple, fast and very secure.
This website will stay active all year round. Please check back from time to time for updates. You can donate at anytime for either supporting a challenge that I am participating in, a birthday (June 27) gift, Christmas gift, or just because :-). Any amount is greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your generosity.
Updates from the Challenge
A new and different challenge in New Zealand! My family and I hiked the Fox Glacier. It was definitely different than anything we have ever done! It was a really cool experience, and I got to fly in a helicopter to the start of the hike!
