Charity #1: CoolEarth

Why these guys are super important...

CoolEarth: the official charity of The Adventurists, creators of the Mongol Rally. And the unexpected reason why...
"...it hit us like a well polished brogue to the nuts: “we must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck”. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. It’s not just about the carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent."
Cool Earth in a Nutshell
  • Put local people in control of at-risk rainforest form non-logging agreements
  • Build better incomes, better schools, better clinics
  • Do the same with the next village
  • Build a shield for the rainforest
WHAT THEY DO
  • We never have and never will buy land. Instead we help the local communities take legal control of their forest.
  • By building better schools, better clinics and better incomes, we ensure rainforest protection goes hand in hand with better lives.
  • We focus our efforts on rainforest that is most at-risk and which would otherwise be destroyed within the next 18 months.
  • The protected forest forms a shield to make millions of acres of neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers.
  • We promise that more than 90p in every £1 you donate will go straight to our projects.
THIS IS A GREAT CAUSE. We're so proud that we get to be donating! This charity is doing things that really matter for people who really exist in a world that is really broken. And the benefit is that it makes the world a bit larger again.
So sign us up! We're on board and ready to rock!!  Every bit that you donate helps us EXCEED the minimum $1500 we are required to raise. Because who wants to only give $1500? LAME. We want to be generous! 
Ask yourself if those people, this planet, and the sheer joy of adventure truly matters, and then ask yourself how much that's worth to you. Then donate here.
