Kublai Kooks - Mongol Rally 2017 ****www.kublaikooks.org**** We are ragtag group of six adventurers representing five nations trying to race across 30+ countries spanning over 22,000km in just under two months. But that's nothing compared to the race against time to preserve the life giving rainforest. Your generosity will go directly to help save one of the most incredible places on earth. Our goal is to raise 1000GBP (approx. 1700CAD or 1300USD) before the start of the race...that's July 16, 2017. ---Then it hit us like a well polished brogue to the nuts: "we must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck”. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. It’s not just about the carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent.---
WHAT THEY DO
- We never have and never will buy land. Instead we help the local communities take legal control of their forest.
- By building better schools, better clinics and better incomes, we ensure rainforest protection goes hand in hand with better lives.
- We focus our efforts on rainforest that is most at-risk and which would otherwise be destroyed within the next 18 months.
- The protected forest forms a shield to make millions of acres of neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers.
- We promise that more than 90p in every £1 you donate will go straight to our projects.

We’re partnering with three strategically located villages to halt the advance of the palm frontier from the east – shielding the pristine rainforest behind.
