Outward Bound is a non-profit organisation that runs experiential educational programmes for people from all sorts of backgrounds. We teach life skills and life changing programmes through adventure!
Although we run programmes for groups from different schools, our main focus area is the disadvantaged youth of our country.
They are the ones who benefit the most from these courses.
Unfortunately they do not have the money to attended such programmes and therefore we have a fund raising programme to cover their costs.
One of the means of raising funds this year is to run a fund raising climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. This will be a regular climb up the mountain run by a recognised organisation, but a portion of the costs will go towards the Outward Bound bursary fund for disadvantaged youth.
Why I am contacting you is in order to sell this programme. I would like to know whether you have a mailing list to whom you would be prepared to send details of the climb in order to spread the word. I am only looking for 14 people to attend (of course the more we get the more money we raise). I realise that times are hard at the moment and people don’t really have spare money, but would like to know if you would be able to help out in this way.
I am attaching a copy of the poster that we have been sending out. Please let me know if you would like to know anything more about either the climb or Outward Bound South Africa. For more details, see the PDF file that is attached below.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will be able to help out.
