Raising Money on Everest

Over the years I suspect that millions of dollars (or pounds) have been raised by climbers on Mt Everest. Individuals and whole teams have dedicated their efforts towards charitable goals. What a great idea! 
It would be an interesting exercise to see what kind of an impact these fundraising efforts have had on their charities. To follow the money and see examples of how the tremendous efforts put forth by climbers have translated into good and amazing things being done around the world.
Too often the World's press want to write negative stories about Everest, perhaps this is one story that can be written that shows another positive side to Himalayan climbing?
