Grammy-nominated musician, Kenna (top right), masterminded the expedition, which was an ascent of Tanzania’s highest peak to raise awareness of the clean water crisis that affects more than one-billion people worldwide. The expedition raised funds for the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Water For People’s PlayPumps Technology.
Kenna’s approach to driving social and environmental change inspired many of his influential friends to join the 19,340-foot climb including actress Jessica Biel, hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco (right), actor Emile Hirsch, musician Santigold, Ambassador for Water Keeper Alliance Kick Kennedy and Revo Ambassadors Alexandra Cousteau and Jimmy Chin (top left).

In keeping with the spirit of the expedition, beginning last month and concluding March 22, World Water Day, Sunglass Hut will donate 15 percent of proceeds from online sales of Revo Abyss and Belay sunglass models to Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro beneficiaries.
