A 3,500km pan-Indian adventure in a 7 horsepower glorified lawnmower. The Rickshaw Run is easily the least sensible thing to do with two weeks. However this August 2019 Ben Chichester, James Sole and I will be tackling this epic journey. We're doing so to help raise money for this wonderful charity.
Cool Earth works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.
Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation, but the most to gain from its protection, that’s why they are the forest’s best possible custodians. All Cool Earth partnerships are community-owned and led.
By developing local livelihoods, their mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities.
They are also the only charity that works solely where the threat to the forest is greatest, on the frontline of deforestation. They work strategically, each of their partnerships form a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.
Not only that but 90% of your donation goes straight to the rainforest and their indigenous partners. So whilst we're driving a glorified lawnmower across India, you know that your risk taking tendencies and fundraising efforts are helping keep rainforest standing.
