So I mentioned in my last post that we made the rally, but I haven't explained why we are doing this.
There are two reasons, to raise money for a couple of very worthwhile charities while having as much fun as possible exploring some less conventional places in this world. Sometimes everything feels so near and so touched by tourists, I think this will be a unique way of experiencing new places and cultures.
The charities are Mercy Corps Mongolia, whose overall goal is to support rural communities to provide a better quality of life for rural residents. The donations are collected through Mercy Corps Scotland (HQ) and then distributed.
The second charity is Hopes and Homes for Children, whose aim is to give hope to the poorest children in the world - those who are orphaned, abandoned or vulnerable - by enabling them to grow up within the love of a family and the security of a home.
So please please please support one or both of these charities by visiting our fund raising websites at :

And without trying to sound too cheesy, every donation however small, makes a difference.
Thank you :)
