Thanks for finding your way to our fundraising page. We are raising much needed funds for UNICEF’s (Syrian Crisis Appeal) and CoolEarth. To raise these funds, we will be taking part in the Mongol Rally, one of the craziest adventures of a lifetime. (Why strangely mainstream?) While the chance to get off the beaten track is undeniably appealing a huge part of wanting to do this is the opportunity to raise awareness and hopefully some funds for two great causes close to our hearts. UNICEF (Syrian Appeal) After 5 years of war, 5 million people have fled the country and 6.5 million people have been displaced internally. Syrian children have lost their homes, their security, their childhood. UNICEF is urgently appealing for funds to deliver emergency supplies, protection and support to millions of children caught in the line of fire and living on the move as refugees. Cool Earth is a charity that works alongside indigenous villages in the Asia Pacific, Africa and South America to halt rainforest destruction. Rainforests provide us with a huge range of essential benefits, around the world are home to more that half the worlds wildlife. They help to regulate our climate by recycling huge quantities of water to help prevent drought. The Amazon alone, stores more than half the worlds rainwater! They also absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen into the atmosphere for us to breathe. As you can see they are pretty bloody important. These are two charities that we both really believe in, we hope you agree and can reach into your pockets and help us by contributing. Every little bit helps.
