In October 2019 a few friends of questionable judgement will be riding tiny 50cc motorbikes (called Monkey Bikes) across the Moroccan Desert to 1) gather a new arsenal of ridiculous stories and 2) bring awareness and raise funds for saving the rain forest. Never mind that most of us don't actually know how to ride a motorcycle, let alone in sand. Never mind that we don't speak French or Arabic so communicating to ask strangers for help with our broken motorcycle could be difficult. Nevermind that riding a motorcycle that seems to be built for an 8 year old for hours each day on road-like surfaces will be about THE most uncomfortable way to travel across Morocco. Pain and humiliation are temporary. But RAIN FORESTS are forever! Or so they need to be! We are raising money for Cool Earth, a nonprofit that works with local communities in Africa, Oceana, and South America to put control of rain forest rights back into the hands of the local communities that depend on them most. Although, really, we ALL depend on the rain forest in ways we don't often see or think about. Check out Cool Earth (or Cool Earth Action, USA) for more info on their projects and impact. They aren't rated in Charity Navigator as they don't meet the requirements (over one million dollars in revenue) but some quick research shows they are on the up and up. I know there are many, many worthy causes to contribute money to so thank you for considering those as a potential donation for your hard earned money.
