Family and friends... I will be participating in a charity event during the next month in India. Two strangers (soon to be lifelong friends, no doubt) and I will be crossing 2,000 miles of India in a 7 horsepower rickshaw/tuk-tuk/3-wheel taxi from Jaislamer to Cochin. The teams that do complete the “race” will enjoy a party and football game against a local team near the finish line in Kerala. The official charity of The Rickshaw Run is Cool Earth- a nonprofit organization that works alongside indigenous rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Cool Earth only works with communities that approach them in search of aid, requesting assistance and funding for the introduction of opportunities for livelihoods that will allow the communities to earn more than harvesting the rainforest, all while keeping the rainforests standing.
