...what we need is less guilt and more pure, for-the-hell-of-it adventure. It’s worth it on its own terms. No feather boa required.

I'm thinking of a few donations that I made. There was a list of charitable causes on the "expedition" web site, and when you donated money, you were transferred over to the website of the charity of choice, and 100% of the funds went to that charity. I had to admire a person who could work a full-time job, prepare for a big mountain, pay for the real expenses herself, AND raise $10k mainly for child services or the Special Olympics.
