How cool is this? I mean, really. How cool?
This is a photo of a Pay It Forward bracelet, the brainchild of our Pay It Forward Foundation president Charley Johnson, about to make its way to the top of Mt. Everest.
The climber’s name is Elia Saikaly. This is his 8th expedition to the Himalayas and his 5th attempt on Everest. Elia is the lead high altitude cinematographer on a 12-Part television series called "Arabs on top of the World".
Check him out HERE and let's all cheer Elia on in this amazing quest.
Here is a working link to the Facebook page mentioned in the comment below. And another very cool PIF pic of the Police Chief of Ottawa, on the job with his Pay It Forward bracelet:
Follow-up to the world's coolest image: Elia Saikaly doing Skype sessions from his "office" in front of the Khumbu Icefall, Mt Everest Base Camp, wearing the PayIt Forward bracelet that will ascend the mountain with him.
