Adventures of a mother of 7 – Johanna Gustafsson

Because it's there!

When 8 years old I learned about Mount Everest, and ever since I have dreamed about climbing up there. When I became middle-aged and sensible I thought that it's impossible.

2012 when I turned 50 I suddenly got this crazy idea to fulfill my childhood dream. Now, almost 2 years later, after studying, training, researching & finding solutions, it seems possible!

If things go well I will summit in May 2014, if things don't go well I will hopefully do it another year. If you want to follow me vie e-mail updates you can subscribe to them.

Vaccinations for kids in Africa

I have another dream.

I wish we in Finland could invest the same amount of money we shoot up in the air as fireworks at New Years eve into  vaccinations for children in Africa. I have calculated that with that money, 20 million €, we could vaccinate the entire population of children in Africa against some diseases

The practical distributor of the vaccinations is Unicef, the collection of the funds also happens via them. 

I will look into how to advance this and how to perhaps make this an international campaign after I'm back from the mountain.
