In 2013, Elisha (Eli), became the first American with Down syndrome to reach Base Camp at Mount Everest. This July, Eli is taking up the task of climbing 19,341 feet to summit Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.
Emote360, a non-profit dedicated to telling stories through video, has committed to telling Eli's story and will follow Eli and the team throughout the sixty-mile hike. The goal of the documentary is to raise awareness on a global scale for those who live with disabilities, inspire those who feel they can't make a difference, and demonstrate that people can change the world, no matter their personal challenges.

Local photographer and director of this project, Benjamin Edwards, is raising money for Emote360, and is traveling to Mount Kilimanjaro to tell this amazing story. (Recently Kevin Kubota, Benjamin Edwards, and a group of photographers traveled to Kijabe Hospital in Kenya with Workshops with a Purpose, to document the hospital's work.) We want to do all we can to help support Ben on this new adventure as well, and bring awareness to the Emote360 cause.

The team needs $45,000 by July 15, 2014 to fly the crew of three and their gear to the location. Your purchases and donations will get Eli and the crew one step closer to the goal.
