My name is Mike Tobin!
I support.a range of charities and choose personal challenges to impress people, hopefully enough to actually part with their money to support these charities too. I am always looking for the suitably challenging endeavours, like running 40 (yes, forty) full-length marathons in 40 days and sleeping on the streets with business colleagues to draw attention and donations to homeless charities.
This expedition to the South Pole is my hardest challenge yet.
It is very different from running, different from sleeping out, different from other obvious things one can do to pass time to impress. This endeavour is a seriously potentially very dangerous and physically challenging feat.
Let’s be clear about this. When you give money, you are NOT CROWDFUNDING our trip. My colleagues and I are paying for this trip ourselves!
ALL DONATED FUNDS GO TO THE CHARITY AND ONLY THE CHARITY.
We will and have paid the substantial cost of this trip, and WE ARE GOING SOUTH!
What we do really need is encouragement by way of people showing support. Your funds give us the motivation and the energy to succeed at this. Please help the charity with your donations and give us a warm feeling by doing so! We are, I am sure, going to need that warmth too.
Thank you so much.
