Thanks to all!!

We have had support coming from many directions over the past few weeks. Mountaintrip is donating a slew of four season tents as well as use of a satellite phone. SUUNTO and Bill Porter have organized the donation of several Vector watches for the guides to utilize during the trip and then leave with Pakistani women after the camp. Sterling Ropes of Maine is providing ropes and cordage. Osprey donated packs for all the guides. Mountain Hardwear recently sent a box of clothing for participants. EMS Climbing School provided a slew of hardwear from ice tools to trekking poles to crampons and more. Mountainfund is also sending along an assortment of gear. Several individuals have dug boots and crampons out of their closets to send to the camp. On top of all they have already done, the American Alpine Club is sending Mountain Hardwear duffle bags for the transport of all the above mentioned donations. Thank you thank you thank you to all! Less than two weeks before departure, and many donation agreements are still in the works--we are so excited, and so grateful!
