As fun and exciting as this trip was, it wasn't just a crazy adventure for our own enjoyment. Over the past dozen years, teams participating in the Mongol Rally have collectively raised millions of dollars for various worthy causes around the world, and we embarked on our journey hoping to continue the good work. We selected two great charities whose work we support, and we're thrilled to announce that our extremely generous donors helped us raise nearly $4000!
Our charity fundraising campaign has now officially ended, but don't let that stop you. If you're still feeling inspired to assist the important, ongoing work of SOIL in Haiti, we encourage you to donate directly on the organization's website.
If you'd prefer to contribute to Cool Earth, here's the link.
In addition to raising money for charity, we've also been accepting contributions to help offset the enormous cost of this trip, including many unavoidable personal expenses like flights, gas, visas, vaccinations, and of course the purchase of our vehicle and the numerous repairs it needed throughout our journey. We're incredibly grateful for all the assistance people have given us so far, enabling us to bring greater awareness to a couple of amazing organizations and hopefully make the world a more interesting place as we've documented it through our blog, podcast, and social media. Though the trip has now concluded, we're still paying off the bills, so we'll continue taking donations if any of would like to pitch in.
