A Team of International Friends Helping Amputees Change the World

How can you contribute to the success of Nawang and our Expedition?

Help to support our Cho Oyu Spring 2006 Expedition and
lower your taxes. Direct monetary contributions are the
lifeblood of any expedition!

Without enough monetary contributions, expeditions can fail for lack of a way to purchase essential goods and services. Direct monetary contributions are also the simplest and easiest way to support our team. Your valuable monetary contributions can be used to pay for the clothing, communications equipment, food, flights, and travel services needed for our expedition.

We make it easy AND tax-deductible. Direct monetary contributions can be made online with your credit card or bank account information through our secure Donation link to The American Alpine Club on the Black Tie-Colorado website.

Contributing is easy!
