To take part in this rally, we need to raise at least $2000 for charity, and on top of that raise additional funds to support the purchase of a junker car, as well as finance the whole fantastic voyage. Will you help us?
UPDATE: Currently we are the top fundraisers in the Africa Rally!!!
Thanks to YOUR help, we have SURPASSED our second goal of $3,200 and raised an AMAZING $4,586 so far for Send A Cow!!! Donations can continue while we are on the road, so donate away and help ensure we stay in 1st place!!!
There are two ways you can support us:
Donate To Our Charity
Our goal is to raise a minimum of
$2,000 $3,200 (WE DID IT, BUT WE WANT TO RAISE MORE!) for the Send A Cow charity. Send A Cow gives direct, practical help to poor farmers in Africa, by providing, cows and other livestock, training in livestock rearing and organic farming, and low-cost veterinary and advice services. Think sustainable agriculture and living!
Send A Cow works in many countries across Africa, including our final destination - Cameroon. They began work in Cameroon in 2005. To find out more about Cameroon’s cane rat project and the other specific initiatives that Send a Cow supports, check out their website.
Donate To Our Trip Fund
Even if you’re not in the car in body, you can still be a part of the madness! We need extra funds to purchase a used car for our adventure and to pay for things along the way, like petrol and spare car parts. When the journey is over, we’ll sell our car and donate the proceeds, along with any remaining funds, right back to Send A Cow. At this moment, your donation will go towards covering spare parts for the car!
We take checks!
