Yurtin' 4 a Squirtin' takes on the Mongol Rally to raise funds for Cool Earth and The Ocean Cleanup

$1,060 of $2,000 goal
Given by 25 generous donors in around 8 months

Risking death defying difficulties to raise money for our planets ambiguous future. Don't let our trip into the danger zone be in vain.

Taranaki

It is estimated that within 100 years there will be no rainforest left -  and the amount of plastic in the ocean will outweigh the fish!

To combat this we’ve decided to join - in the words of The Adventurists - "the fight to make the world less boring” by undertaking a death defying car race that will encompass a third of the globe, and help raise money for charities Cool Earth and The Ocean Cleanup.

COOL EARTH . . . .

These guys are fighting the battle on the front line, smashing results for sustainability, by working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change.   Considering 1/5 of the world's oxygen is generated through our rainforest, it’s vital for our very survival to keep it thriving.

THE OCEAN CLEANUP . . . .

Thanks to a savvy Dutch inventor, Boyan Slat, a giant self propelled catchment system will attempt to retrieve most of the plastic from our oceans. The plastic can then be recycled and used for that next stylish purchase of snazzy Scandinavian furniture that everyone raves about.

THE RALLY . . . .

Consists of four intrepid adventurers, one old banger with a 1 litre engine, 15,000 kilometres of dodgy "roads" - and die-hard determination!

We’ll be heading from London to just north of Mongolia with no support, no get out of jail free card and no GPS - just six weeks of the most absurd road trip with the aim of raising funds to restore our planet's equilibrium.

Big or small, your support and donations are invaluable.

Thank you from all of us.

Polly, Ash, Elliot and Johan
