Earlier in the month I wrote several times about the Summit on the Summit celebrity Kilimanjaro climb, which saw musician Kenna lead a team that included the likes of actors Jessica Biel and Emile Hirsch, adventure photographer Jimmy Chin, and rapper Lupe Fiasco to the summit of the highest mountain in Africa. The group was climbing to raise awareness of the growing global clean water crisis, and to raise funds to deliver water to people in need all over the planet.
The climb might be over, but the cause remains the same. There are ongoing efforts to continue to get out the word about this very important subject. That that end, The Adventure Blog has teamed up with the Summit on the Summit crew to give away a Peak XV down jacket provided by First Ascent.
The rules are simple. First, and foremost, you must be a resident of the U.S. to be eligible to win. If you meet that criteria, all you have to do is head over to the Summit on the Summit blog at Tumblr, and find the answer to one simple question:
What is the minimum standard amount of water that the United Nation’s High Commission for Refugees needs per person per day in liters?
Once you’ve found the answer, e-mail it to me at KungFuJedi@gmail.com with “Summit on the Summit” as your subject line, and type your answer in the body. I’ll collect all the entrants with the correct answer, and pick the winner from a hat. All entries must be received by Midnight EST, February 3rd to be eligible. The winner will get the awesome jacket that is kindly provided by the good folks over at First Ascent, who were instrumental in outfitting the Summit on the Summit expedition. The jacket has a value of $269 and is designed to keep us warm in the most inclement weather. This really is a great prize for whoever wins! Good luck!!
