Rickshawin'Across India for Charity

Before we get started, a few important things to know:

100% of the donations we receive will go to 1 of 2 charities:

a) 100% of the first UK £500 (around$650) will go to 'Cool Earth'  to halt rainforest destruction.

b) 100% of the remainder, however small or large will go to 'Asha for Education' a secular, non-religious, volunteer only organization supporting education in India (Not a single person is paid a salary, or compensated in the org!)

c) 0% of your money will be used to fund our trip, flights, rickshaw, repairs, love of partying, food, lodging or anything of the like... we got it covered.

Now for the the rest of the spiel:

Ladies and Gentlemen!

May I introduce to ya'll, team "Swalpa Adjust Maadi" colloquial kannada for "Just‬ make it work"

We plan to stuff ourselves into a 3 wheeled Rickshaw and push, pull, float or drag it across the width of India in a few months!

Each team in the 'rally' (read: insanely entertaining way to disregard safety and well being) will be raising funds for charity (this is where you come in.) We have chosen to give funds to 2 amazing charities: Cool Earth and Asha For Education. We have provided links below so you know what your money is supporting, so read on... or not, we did our research.

The annual rallies have raised over £5,500,000 in total over the years going to various causes, now its your turn to chip in! 

The Trip:
We will set off in Jaisalmer Rajasthan into the middle of the Thar desert, on to Lucknow, Agra, Patna (other places in Bihar that really don't matter) onto Nepal, Siliguri, possibly Bangladesh (Bhutan if we are terribly lost) and Hopefully, HOPEFULLY, into Shillong Meghalaya!

Our Journey Begins April 1st, so check back for more to come! #SwalpaAdjust
