I just stumbled across this on the first ascent blog, apparently MTV has a show following celebrities as they climb to the summit of Kilimanjaro. At first I was laughing watching the actors, and musicians, as they experience climbing for the first time. But the underlying theme I think of this is to help the country of Ethiopia with clean water. I think that the celebrities deserve credit for doing something like this to get people not only interesting in the outdoors and the beauty of the mountains, but bringing global attention to pressing humanitarian needs.
More celebrities should do things of this nature since they are looked up to and are modeled after. They can be great ambassadors to the world to help get things brought to the attention of the world. And finally MTV has a show that is not about dating someones mom, or the real world BS. So keep it up!
here is the link to a trailer on the show which starts tomorrow night.
