Kismet Rock Foundation is a non-profit based out of North Conway, New Hampshire. Here is the mission statement from the website:
Kismet Rock Foundation (KRF) offers comprehensive courses in rock climbing and mountaineering to children who, because of financial limitations, would not otherwise have access to such an education. Based in North Conway, New Hampshire, KRF accepts emotionally stable and well-functioning youth from both urban and rural areas into its programs. KRF’s goal is to offer children an opportunity to benefit from the immense value inherent in a climbing education.
Kismet is holding it’s annual benefit event this Saturday November 7th at Black Mountain Ski Area in Jackson, NH. It’s called Caliente!; there are tickets left if you want to attend and support Kismet.
