Why we do what we do... The what is always the easy part, the how is short term horrific pain but the why is really the important part and often the least recognised.
My team and I adventure and shenaganise our way around the world to promote and give aid to those who deserve it and otherwise would get lost in a world full of white noise. We're here to give India's street children a chance for a better tomorrow. The four of us are looking to change the life of at least one child in the streets of Kolkata by bringing them an education, health care and most importantly, an opportunity. Just think to yourself, how do you feel about changing the entire life of a child?
www.futurehope.net is the charity that we support. Here you can help us to help them.
You can show your support and your energy to help a child have a life here,
Just a small update this time with a tidbit of 'fun' information.
Check the lovely little speed bump that the team and I will be overcoming at exactly the mid point of our desert crossing in a couple months. It's a monsterous permanent sand dune over 1000ft high and with slopes in excess of 20 degrees!
After years of anticipation it is finally down to within two months of departure. Our final preparations are being made and the time is drawing ever nearer. I (Fisch) have been playing with camels and learning all that I can in the tropics of Australia, Juan has been in the real desert of Australia riding camels (cheater) and Avi and Loz have been busy hiking and expeditioning the UK landscapes.
Avi and Loz have just completed nearly 50km in 2 days with full packs in freezing temps and I've been sweltering away in the Aussie summer heat hiking daily with a full pack in 40 degrees C!
Planning an expedition is one thing, but it's a whole other part of terrifying excitement when you enter your credit cards into a cheap flight booking website and hit the ENTER button to confirm your flights. For me that was a few months ago, for Juan that was a month ago, for Avi and Loz that was last night...
