What is this all about then?

So Tom Cardale and I (Paul Nicholls) have decided to take the leap and sign up to the Mongolia Charity Rally 2013. The rally is organised by the UK registered charity Go Help; who use the rally as a fundraising platform for their outreach projects in Central Asia. 

What’s it all about?

We’re basically going to drive 10,000 miles – virtually half way around the world – from London to Ulaanbataar in a vehicle which we will then donate to a local charity project. 

This is no package holiday and there is no guide-book – we’ll be crossing a huge range of terrain from mountain ranges to deserts; navigating ourselves around the political mine-fields of international borders and even dodging active war-zones to complete this epic journey. 

Why? Just why?

First and foremost this is a charity fundraising exercise, we’ll be raising money directly for Go Help as well as donating a vehicle to their affiliated charity projects in Mongolia. Of course it is also an epic adventure, and that is why it has appealed to us both so much. Fundraising with a difference.

Tell me more…

You can track our progress on our website, follow us on twitter, like us on Facebook but most importantly of all donate to us via JustGiving.  

You can also get in touch directly via e-mail: theteam@mongolia2013.org

Got Name – Need Logo

So after a lovely afternoon in London last weekend we’ve finally got ourselves a name… We are now…

(drumroll)

Bearded Dragon #1Bearded Dragon #1Bearded Dragons

…because we are dragon-y, and after four weeks on the road to Mongolia will no doubt have sprouted beards. Obviously.

Now, with this new name in mind we’ve had quite a bit of fun generating some “artist’s impressions” of how we might look after our epic quest. 

With all that fun though we might have exhausted our supply of creative juices, before we got round to the actually import task of designing ourselves an actual team logo.

This gave us an idea though – an idea to combine fundraising with crowdsourcing with interactivity with engagement*. Turn designing us a logo into a competition!

*Or laziness. Many might call it laziness. We do.

The rules of the competition are as follows: In exchange for each donation you now have a chance to submit your design for our team logo. In a few weeks time we’ll review all the submissions and pick a winner! Simples.

Go go go. Donate now.
