Friends of Dan Fredinburg, the Google executive killed in Saturday’s avalanche at Everest Base Camp, have started a website in his honor where people can share their upcoming adventures and pledge to live “fearlessly.”
Fredinburg, 33, headed a privacy team at Google and ran Save the Ice, a climate change nonprofit. LiveDan works as a forum for visitors to post adventures and to donate to Fredinburg’s projects, like Save the Ice and OrphanGift, which supports orphanages in Nepal. So far, more than $65,000 has been donated.
Fredinburg was a Silicon Valley fixture, philanthropist, and adventurer.
“To Live Dan is to live life as an adventure,” Fredinburg’s friend Mike North told the Huffington Post. “To not be afraid to go out and pursue dreams and crazy ideas. To get yourself out there in the world and do it. Dan was doing so much, and with no hesitation.”
