You folks are responsible for our success. Yes, the girls and I did the hiking, but we would have done that anyway, with or without a noble cause to spur us onward.
One can't hike for charity unless people actually care about you, your trip, and/or the cause. It's noble to put forth the effort, but if the endeavor is financially fruitless then nothing much has been accomplished. Fundraisers depend on people actually giving funds.
That's where you came in. In spades. We are so, so grateful. Thank you. Can't say it enough. Thank you.
We raised a total of $5009 for GirlVentures and we raised at least $5050 for Global Fund for Women. (New Hampshire's Portsmouth Brewery will soon make a donation to Global Fund for Women; I will announce Global Fund for Women's grand total after that check has been received.)
I'd like to publicly thank the following people and organizations for their generous donations of money, time, space, and/or services. Global Fund for Women and GirlVentures are wonderful nonprofits that champion equal and human rights for girls and women. By donating, you supported females all over the world. Again, with all our hearts, thank you.

This was our first time hiking for a cause -- but it will not be our last.
