I’ve had some people ask if they can help out with a cash donations. The good news is… NOW YOU CAN! Just follow the link here and donate whatever amount you’d like.
What will these cash donations be used for? Great question. The rangers of Mount Kenya National Park are in need of all kinds of gear and supplies (stay tuned for the “wish list” update I just received from Simon Gitau, our project co-founder and Senior Warden of the park). A lot of it we are hoping to secure through donations – from kind and generous people like yourself! Some of it is more specialized gear, however, and with your cash, we’ll be able to purchase supplies as well. Also — cash donations will help with the hidden costs of transportation. We’ve got to get that gear over to Kenya somehow — and every bit of cash we can raise can help us reach that goal.
So there you have it! Please donate your cash and your outdoor gear!
