During a climbing expedition on Mt. Everest, a young man suddenly found himself in a critical situation. April, 25, 2015, a deadly earthquake struck Nepal. Matt’s excursion quickly changed from the adventure of a lifetime to a life changing event. In an instant, he had to make critical decision, drawing upon his character, leadership and fortitude. In the days to come, the young Eagle Scout put his first aid training and fundraising skills to work, helping those victims left in the deadly aftermath.

Matt’s leadership helped local villagers recover from the devastation. Because of you, a Scout was prepared to act. Matt’ fundraising efforts purchased 18 metric tons of supplies and hired 800 local porters to transport. When you give to Scouting, you are growing future leaders of our world, like Matt.
