Rickshaw McCaw 2018 - supporting two great charities

Closed Cause page created in the New Zealanders category by Stephen Smith for "Rickshaw McCaw 2018 - Cricket Live Foundation and Cool Earth"

  • $2,627.00 donated
  • 46 generous donors

Help us support two great charities, as we set-off on a 2500km race through India.

Main image

In April 2018 we'll (Jamie, Stephen, Phil) be travelling 2,600 km, from Cochin to Jaisalmer, India, in a race for charity.

We'll be doing it on a rickety rickshaw over two weeks, in the hottest month of the year.

Temperatures will reach 40deg and our rickshaw will have little in the way of air-con.

While it'll be a helluva fun (but challenging) time, it'll be a HUGE deal better if our charities get a good whack of support before we depart.

We have a 1000 NZD (500 GBP) fundraising target for Cool Earth and a 1500 NZD (750 GBP) target for Cricket Live Foundation (must-watch > (http://bit.ly/2iqGrRH)).

In past races, teams have raised thousands by asking everyone to chip in 25 dollars. If you can spare that (or more) it'd be huge for Cool Earth.

All in, we are shelling out approx 8000 NZD to fly to India, and to enter the race, so please help us make it all worthwhile. It'd be greatly appreciated!

Thanks - Jamie, Stephen, Phil - Rickshaw McCaw

***About Cool Earth (one of our two charities):***

Half of the world’s rainforest has been destroyed in the last 40 years. And, contrary to the headlines, rainforest continues to be lost at a faster rate than ever.

Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation but the most to gain from its protection. As such, they are the forest’s best possible custodians. That’s why all Cool Earth partnerships are community-owned and led – an approach that research is continually proving to be the most effective way to keep rainforest standing.

By developing local livelihoods, our mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities – not dependency.

Funds raised will go toward further developing and growing Cricket Live across the subcontinent, and helping Cool Earth in its quest to make communities impacted by deforestation sustainable.

In April 2018 we'll (Jamie, Stephen, Phil) be travelling 2,600 km, from Cochin to Jaisalmer, India, in a race for charity - the famous Rickshaw Run.

We'll be doing it on a rickety rickshaw over two weeks, in the hottest month of the year.

Temperatures will reach 40deg and our rickshaw will have little in the way of air-con.

While it'll be a helluva fun (but challenging) time, it'll be a HUGE deal better if our charities get a good whack of support before we depart.

We have a 500 GBP fundraising target for Cool Earth and a 500 GBP target for Cricket Live Foundation.

In past races, teams have raised thousands by asking everyone to chip in 10 GBP. If you can spare that (or more) it'd be huge for both charities.

All in, we are shelling out approx 5000 GBP to fly to India, and to enter the race, so please help us make it all worthwhile. It'd be greatly appreciated!

Thanks - Jamie, Stephen, Phil - Rickshaw McCaw
