We're taking part in the Rickshaw Run 2018 to raise money for Cool Earth. It's 3,000km*, North to South India, in what can only be described as a cross between a tin can and a lawnmower... and in 40 degree heat. We’ll speed (lol 55kmph max on the downhill) through tiny narrow-street villages, around (🤞) pot holes, in and out of jungles & deserts, up and down mountains… without a route planned, with one day training in mechanics to prepare us, in a vehicle which falls over when you go round corners and overheats if you travel for more than a few hours at a time.There is no set route. No back up plan. Nothing is certain... other than the fact that we will get lost, we will break down and we will be pooping where and when we don't intend to poop. Please donate so we don't embarrass ourselves for nothing! WE’RE GONNA SAVE THE RAINFORESTS GUYS! This is what it’s all about. We’re raising money for Cool Earth who are working to halt the deforestation of the rainforests. They’re amazing. Rainforests are amazing. Nature is great, right? We all love nature. Yes, it may seem really fun, but it’s not going to be a walk in the park - more of a rollercoaster which isn’t actually on rails. It's going to be sleeping in hammocks, worrying about where the next toilet is, holding in our explosive diarrhoea, and working out where to get a spare part from when the wheel falls off in the middle of the desert. We would be so grateful if you were able to spare some pennies for a wonderful and important cause. Read more about Cool Earth and PLEASE DONATE!!!! xxxx "It's an ecosystem. Everything is connected. It's like the rainforest. You change one thing, even the tiniest bit, and the whole rainforest dies." - Roy, The IT Crowd. A HUGE HUGE THANK YOU IN ADVANCE. *much, much more if we get lost (which is inevitable)
