At the end of August, Ann and I made a difficult decision. Although we had several partners on board with a verbal “yes” to our project Access Water, the time for securing flights and other logistical aspects of this huge project were closing in. Simply getting to the South Pole with our wonderful team was only the vehicle for the vision we held for the project. Reaching 50 million young people around the globe on the issues of fresh water is what drives us to the ice again. Postponing the expedition a year, allows us to build all that we dreamed with partners in corporations, NGO’s and educational organizations etc.
We were delighted to hear terrific news from our team and our sponsors. All felt the decision allowed them more time to leverage the strengths of the project. All have enthusiastically pledged to remaining and continuing to build the layers of partnerships that we need to have an impact around the globe.
When we started this enormous project years ago, we knew it was the loftiest yet, and we feel energized by the positive response to our decision and to all that we can build together, on and off the ice. We hope you will be encouraged by the gift of time and all we can do together.
