Weʼre raising £1,000 to Raise money for Climbers Against Cancer and Cool Earth: The Mongol Rally 2019.
- London, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My Partner in Crime and I shall do the possimpible and ride some bikes, which we have not yet acquired a very long way, through countries we don't yet have visas for, along a route which we have no idea about. This is the Mongol Rally 2019! Follow us on our journey on Instagram: @thetravellingholly and @whichwayround.
We are Crazy Ass Climbers and we are raising money for Climbers Against Cancer and Cool Earth.
These are two amazing charities. Climbers Against Cancer is looking after the heath of us fragile human beans, while Cool Earth is putting their resources into protecting the lungs of the Earth (our rainforests).
To find out more about these charities check out their webpages:
Cool Earth: www.coolearth.org
We appreciate any donation, small or large.
Donate over £20 and we will put your name or a short message written on our bikes or helmets somewhere, let us know in the comments /in any other way what you would like us to write!
We haven't planned our route yet, so... we're going to be asking you all for ideas (within reason of course) on where we should visit and what we should we see along the way.
To add your pin into our journey put the country, city, town or specific place you think we should visit in the comments when donating.
When we get there we'll take a photo with your name or instatag and tag you in it when we post! If we don't make it because we have broken down or gotten lost in the Serbian wilderness, we will tag you where we can, and possible request a rescue helicopter.
We will be updating this section with more incentives if/when we think of them. If you have your own requests let us know and we will see what we can do.
Our goal is to raise at least 1000 quid, if we manage this 500 will go to Cool Earth and the rest to Climbers Against Cancer. If we do manage to get 1000 quid and you would like to donate to the visa getting process, make a note of this with your donation. If we don't quite make it to 1000 quid, then the money will be split equally (and we won't take any for the visas).
A bit about us:
Even before we met we both had a passion for travelling and doing stupid things.
Holly had no job or place to live for a while so thought it would be a great idea to solo hitch hike to the top of Norway, in the middle of winter (-25 C), with a kids tent, and no money (hence the cheap tent). Turns out it was a great idea! Not a single penny was spent, except on a pair of waterproof boots due to incoming frostbite. She hasn't passed her full bike licence yet and should probably do something about that.
Paul can regularly be found in cold and high places such as the top of Mt Blanc, which nearly lost him his toes coincidentally, (hopefully the Mongol rally will not try to claim our feet fingers). He also likes to go places on his bike, far places, like Alaska and Vietnam because why not! Adventuring is fun. Paul is slightly more prepared having had his bike licence for 11 or so years.
Together we will have an amazing adventure getting lost while travelling halfway across the globe.

Stumbled across your page and coincidentally, I also love motorbikes and climbing. Hope you reach your target of £1000, they are both worthy causes. Have fun. Could you write. “Living the Dream”?
