This week we’re part­ner­ing with Ice­break­er to help fund The Kumari Film Project. Kumari is a remote vil­lage in Nepal, suf­fer­ing from a lack of prop­er med­ical facil­i­ties and access to edu­ca­tion. Jagat Lama, a Kumari res­i­dent with an incred­i­ble sto­ry, promised his dying father he’d help bring health and edu­ca­tion to their vil­lage. In 2006, he found­ed The Inde­pen­dent Trekking Guides Co-Oper­a­tive to pro­vide jobs with sus­tain­able wages for low­er-caste residents.

For every Ice­break­er order dur­ing our 3‑day event, The Clymb and Ice­break­er will donate $6 to ben­e­fit Jagat Lama’s vil­lage, Kumari.

But that’s just one way to help. When a region requires so much, know­ing where to start can be over­whelm­ing. Giv­en only one choice, where do you think your time and efforts would be most ben­e­fi­cial in Kumari? Med­ical, Edu­ca­tion, or Road, Water, and Earth Removal? Read about the projects here and here.

Then tell us which area and why and we’ll make a $50 dona­tion in your name to ben­e­fit the Nepali vil­lage of Kumari. We’ll choose a win­ner tomor­row, 9/25, at 8am PST.

Hep­tathlon Hero: Did you know?

On Sep­tem­ber 24th (that’s today!), 1988, while com­pet­ing in the Seoul Olympic Games, Jack­ie Joyn­er-Kersee set the women’s record for hep­tathlon. The sev­en com­pe­ti­tions with­in the event include: 100m hur­dles, high jump, shot put, 200m dash, long jump, javelin throw, and 800m run. Joyn­er-Kersee is only one of three women to ever earn over 7,000 points, and her mark of 7,291 remains the high­est score of all time. And, she accom­plished all her feats with­out the use of per­for­mance-enhanc­ing drugs.
