Welcome to the Do Better Initiative

This initiative is one girl's way of tackling new heights, while helping raise money and awareness to support those closest to her one mountain at a time.

The Initiative

Over the next year, Amanda will climb the tallest peak on each of the seven continents while raising money for seven different charities along the way.
