The great Kiwi folks at Capital Cause Charitable Trust are raising money and awareness for the Orphan Help Centre in Nepal, which supports twenty homeless or disadvantaged children in this tiny Himalayan country. You simply have to go to the Capital Cause website, make a donation and guess the weight of the backpack (as shown above). The contents feature a bundle of hiking goodies (explained on the site) and even include the treasured Australian goodies of Minties (a chewy, mint flavoured sweet) which no hiking trip should be without. Looks too heavy to trek up the Nepalese mountains to me!!
Even better, the prize is a 16 day trip to Nepal including the return flight from anywhere in the world, a hike around the stunning Annapurna region (by Intrepid Travel) and a bundle of great hiking clothes.
Entries close on July 31 (in a day or two) so please support this great cause run by this excellent non-profit organisation.
