After my first Everest climb, I made a promise to the children and staff at Child Haven International in Nepal that I would return with funds to help rebuild a well for orphaned children. I spoke to over 30 schools in Canada, each who in return made a contribution to the efforts to bring clean drinking water to the kids at ChildHaven.

The Well

I’m proud to announce that we finally reached our goal. With the help and support of dozens of schools in the Ottawa area, we raised enough money to build the well in Kathmandu.

Kids from Hopewell

It’s been very inspiring to watch students, teachers and communities rally behind this cause. The number of students that participated in this fundraising initiative has exceeded my expectations. I’m incredibly proud of how much of a difference they’ve made in the world.
