Hello Everyone ! :) This August, Matt and Raeyanna Boesch, team "the Roaming Goats", will be joining fellow Adventurists by participating in "the Rickshaw Run", a charity rally across India to support Cool Earth in their effort to save the rainforests from deforestation. Join as we travel from the south of India to the North in a borrowed, 7 HP, three-wheeled vehicle traveling at a top speed of 55kph (downhill) over 2,471 kilometers from Kochi to Jaisalmer. We expect over the course of the 22-day trek to get lost, to play frogger amidst the lively Indian traffic, to break down when we least expect it, and to pass the time sipping chia by the roadside waiting for our engines to cool. In short, we expect to embrace the adventure of a lifetime for a great cause and we'd love for you to join us:).
The adventure is certainly enticing its self, but we are also driven to participate by the opportunity to raise awareness and funding in support of the Cool Earth organization. Cool Earth is the non-profit organization that works alongside indigenous rainforest communities creating strong, self-determined, local livelihoods that can put a halt to deforestation and it's impact on climate change.
In an effort to encourage others to join us in supporting Cool Earth and their mission, we will be bringing up 72 small plush goat toys with us to give to the children we meet in India along the way.
If you would like to sponsor a goat with a donation of $30 USD (enter £25) or more, we will bring your sponsored goat on the rickshaw with us. If you would like, you can name your little goat by telling us in the donation comment section. We will keep you updated via social media as your sponsored little one travels India in search of his/her new friend. When the goats are paired with their new companions, as a thank you, we will share a picture and tag you in a post on social media. Sponsoring a roaming goat is a great way to join us on the rally, help in the fight against climate change, and to spread a little joy.
Please note, all of the donations made will go 100% to the Cool Earth organization. Matt and Raeyanna have provided the plush goats themselves, therefore, sponsoring a plush goat will not take away from the donation totals made to Cool Earth. Unfortunately, due to the space on the rickshaw and in the carry-on luggage, the number of goats available for sponsorship is limited to the first 72 donations of $30 USD (£25) or more.
Thank you very much for supporting Cool Earth and the Roaming Goats!
We hope together to make the world a better, friendlier, more adventurous place. :)
