Expedition Everest

Some people seem to care only about themselves, seek only to remain comfortable, have no interest in learning about cultures other than their own, and are afraid to try new things.  I had lunch recently with a guy who is precisely the opposite.  

Toby Storie-Pugh has made a documentary about the life of street kids in Delhi, India.  He has taught a range of people, from executives to at-risk youth, about the joy of climbing mountains and exploring nature.  He founded an orphanage in Kenya.  And now he is in the final two months of preparing to help Steve Obbayi become the first Kenyan to climb to the summit of Mt. Everest.  Click on the logo below and check out his website.  I love the website's tagline: Never. Stop. Dreaming.
