Philanthropy is one of the main pillars of the 41°-74° Club that makes us stand out amongst other travel/hospitality industry organizations. The club hosts two successful fundraising events each year, the Holiday Luncheon and Annual Spring Fundraiser. The Philanthropic Committee carefully researches local charities to ascertain the best recipients of our contributions. We often support other causes as the need arises. 




Our little sister in Kenya is Mercy Syombua, who was born in 1993 and is now 23 years old. Mercy is a double orphan - both her parents have died, and she and her younger sister are cared for by their aunt. Mercy lives in Mukuru - a large slum outside Nairobi, Kenya, where poverty is a tragic reality for its residents.

It is estimated that families of five members are surviving on an average of USD 1.30 per day. Mukuru has an estimated population of 325,000+ of which 60% are under the age of 18. There is an estimated HIV prevalence rate of 15%, and approximately 30% to 40% of the children have been orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

Mercy loves to read, especially novels. She strives to excel in school, so she can become a doctor or a nurse. In Kenya there is a national exam at the end of Primary School, called the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE). The results from the test rank the students nationally and determine their placement level for high school. Mercy completed this test in December of 2008.  Now Mercy is in Form 3 at Kavingoni Secondary School (3rd year of High School) and is doing very well.
