They have sent us the following information on their Facebook campaign:
"We're out of breath. We've just succeeded in our quest to get 8,848 Facebook likes before Kenton Cool climbs Everest. But we think we can climb higher. Can you help us reach 10,000 and raise money for Porter's Progress?
Facebook fans will know that we've been running a competition on our Facebook page. We were feeling ever-so-slightly lonely, so thought we'd try to get 8,848 Facebook fans before Mr Cool attempted Everest for the tenth time.
There have been some tasty spot prizes – thanks to Sherpa Adventure Gear, Icebreaker and Julbo– and the main prize is still up for grabs: a personal video message from near the top of the world, plus a Sherpa Adventure Gear Lithang jacket and an Icebreaker Quantum Hood.
The draw for the final prize is at 4pm TODAY – so it's not too late to get involved.
And if we get there we'll donate a grand to Porter's Progress, the charity championing the rights and working conditions of mountain porters.
Like us, and then wait for a notification.
