Sherpa Fund Print Sale - Today is day three of our one week only print sale to support the Sherpa community that lost loved ones on Everest last week. Please consider purchasing a signed print from www.sherpasfund.org. This image - a climber descends the "Valley of Silence" perched at 22,000 atop the #Khumbu Icefall on Everest's south side - is one of many available. Photo: @pedromcbride (Pete McBride) About the Fund: We are ten photographers who have worked extensively with the Sherpa people and feel devastated by this tragic event. For us, it is a moment to ask how we can help our Sherpa friends both in this time of crisis and in the years to come. Not long after I shot this image, Mingma Sherpa plucked me from a crevasse saving my life, so in effort to return the helping hand, we are donating the prints you will see on the site, a selection of our photographs of the Himalayan region and its people, curated by our editors, National Geographic’s Sadie Quarrier and Outside’s Amy Silverman. One-hundred percent of proceeds from this sale (after the cost of printing) will go to the Sherpa community via the nonprofit Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation, which has been working with Sherpa climbers in the Khumbu since 2003. By purchasing a print today, you are helping provide relief to #Sherpa families in crisis, as well as long-term support that transcends this single incident. Thanks for your #support. #everest #help
