Doug Pitt (yes, he’s Brad’s brother) is currently climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money to bring clean drinking water to African communities.

Pitt, a photojournalist and U.S. Goodwill Ambassador for Tanzania, said about his cause, “It is the obvious first step to release people from dire poverty. Clean water must come first.”

Pitt is one of 50 or so climbers who will be making their way up the mountain for charity. For every foot Pitt climbs, reGen2climb.com will be donating a dollar to raise money to build 50 fresh water wells. That also goes for the rest of the climbers.

Pitt’s most recent update about the climb reads, “The team faced the most challenging day of the climb so far on today’s 10-hour journey up the 1,000-foot Baranco Wall and then through the Karanga Valley. Rain made a descent through rock formations treacherous, but the entire team arrived safely at Barafu Camp (15,050 feet) in time to catch a few hours of sleep before beginning the final hike to Uhuru Peak at midnight.”

Pitt won’t be the first celebrity to raise funds by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Martina Navratilova and Jessica Biel are just a few others who have also made the climb.

The total climb will be 19,340 feet. Keep on going Doug. You’re almost there!
