Today we are featuring our Live Tibetan Khata Scarf for the next giveaway in our Climb the Mountain to Clean Water campaign. A khata, is a traditional ceremonial scarf which symbolizes purity and compassion and the pure heart of the giver. Tibetans commonly give a kind acknowledgment of good luck at the time of presenting. Jake Norton of Challenge21 will spend the day acclimating before heading to the summit tonight and embarking on his climb of El Pico de Orizaba. We’ll be thinking of him over the next few days and sending many thoughts of good luck his way.

Khatas can also be presented at festive occasions to a host or departure of guests and at Tibetan weddings, guests offer khatas to the bride and groom. The Dalai Lama is known to offer khatas as a gift which symbolizes purity of intention and the beginning of the relationship.

A portion of proceeds from our Khata Scarves is always donated to the Challenge21 campaign and Water for People, helping to bring clean water and sanitation to countries worldwide.

Protection cords are worn to bring you good luck and protection throughout the journeys and adventures in life. Our Tibetan Buddhist protection cords are sourced from Nepal and have been blessed by a Tibetan Buddhist lama. By tradition, mountain climbers receive one before any major expedition in the Himalayas.

Jake Norton of Challenge21 has been wearing protection cords since 1996 and is currently donning three of them. In preparation for his trip, we wanted to give Jake all of the luck and protection that we could. The photo below shows Jake and his wife Wende proudly sporting their newest protection cords with Live Worldly’s Kael Robinson.

Having spent the day acclimating at the base of La Malinche, Jake is scheduled to begin his climb of Pico de Orizaba, the third largest peak in North America, tomorrow. Learn more about Jake’s mission with Challenge 21 and stay tuned for updates!

It’s an unseasonably warm day in February so you and a few friends decide to go on a hike. As you reach the top, you look out at the incredible view around you and treat yourself to a long drink of water. Sounds perfect right? Unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of clean drinking water. In fact, 884 million people, or roughly one in eight people throughout the world do not have access to safe drinking and bathing water. That’s not a molehill of a problem, it’s a mountain.

Challenge21 co-founder and renowned climber, Jake Norton, is aiming to be the first climber to complete the Triple Seven Summits – the three highest peaks on each continent – to help combat the world’s most pressing development needs: water and sanitation. His goal is to raise $2.1 million for the Denver-based non-profit Water For People and engage and impassion 2.1 million people in the global water and sanitation crisis. Having already climbed six of the Challenge21 peaks – Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Everest, Cerro Aconcagua, Mount McKinley, Mount Stanley and Vinson Massif- Jake is preparing for his next endeavor this February: El Pico de Orizaba, Mexico, the third highest peak in North America. Our next post will talk all about the beginnings of Challenge21 and how we got teamed up with this amazing organization.

Climb the Mountain to Clean Water – How You Can Get Involved

Jake and his team will acclimate first on La Malinche, climbing some 4100 feet to the summit, before heading off to Orizaba to climb another 4400 feet, for a total of roughly 8500 feet of climbing over 4 days. Raising both money and awareness, every step along the way brings us one step closer to addressing the world’s problem of clean water and adequate sanitation. Over the month of February, if you make a donation to Water For People via our WFP Fundraising page, we’ll enter your name in our Live Tibetan Product Giveaway which includes our – Love in India BraceletLive Tibetan Protection Cord, Live Tibetan Prayer Bead Necklace, Live Tibetan Silk Khata, and the grand prize is an assortment of Live Tibetan products in a brand new Live Venezuelan leather bag (A $300 Value). For every dollar you donate you will receive one entry ballot and will bring us one step closer in the climb to clean water. Enter today by visiting our fundraising site and help us to reach our goal of $8500.
